"Passing Decades" by Rory Ridley-Duff (Instrumental Rock artist from England (UK))
"Passing Decades" is a great mix of distinguished instrumentation that features Rory Ridley-Duff's mastery of the keys. Rory creates many different and memorable keyboard/synthesizer sounds throughout the CD and pieces them together into impressive arrangements. The album's title piece is a symbol of Rory's craftsmanship. The rythmic bass bounces in time. The break before the sax is an unexpected treat. He continuously adds just the right amount of flavor to keep your interest peaked throughout this great song. Another song from Passing Decades, "What Did I Drink?" is a crisp arrangement of symphonic sounds with excellent forward motion. Its melodies are swaying and mischievous in 6/8 time. If you love symphonic rock pick up a copy of Passing Decades. You'll be glad you did!
