Despite the religious connotation in the title this is prime acoustic guitar lead instrumental music not unlike UK's Gordon Giltraps expeditions(think Perilous Journey/Fear of Dark) in the late 70s early 80s. There is NO electric guitar on this recording whatsoever although you can hear a rock and roll influence in every track theres balance and though in all the compositions.
There is that 80s Windham Hill vibe(think Alex Degrassi) in a few tracks where the solo acoustic nature of his guitar really shines and pulls the heartstrings. Crow's band is in perfect support mode adding touches of fretless bass, sax, percussion and synthesizers to the music. This is light music without being bland and the proteins in the melodies Crow can magically construct from the ether of his musical muse.
I could picture listening to Creator out on the open roads where land is wide open and flows in continuous graceful geometric splendor!
Definitely a forgotten gem!
