Music – Country to me has always been a difficult genre to nail down, with music ranging from classic country legends, to rock pairings, and ventures into the pop scene with just a twang of country accent. I’ve even heard country rap! It seems there is something for every music lover in this ever evolving genre.
For a minimum of two months at least, The World From the Side of the Moon by Phillip Phillip’s was my sole music provider. I’m the kind of person that will listen a CD to death until I can’t bear another track, and Phillip Phillips was a great contender. He has a folky, almost rock tone. As a whole, I think this album is a great listen from start to finish. The live tracks at the end of the album were also a nice bonus. Having first heard Phillip Phillips as a contestant on American Idol, I was impressed with his solo voice outside of studio recordings, and his premier album did not disappoint.
The World From the Side of the Moon is a simple collection of songs that share a similar tone and rhythm. It’s easy to pass through the whole album without really noticing how many songs have really gone by. While some may find the album to be a bit monotonous, I enjoyed the constancy of the CD as a whole, which is great for as both background and avid-listening music.
