CD Review – A Time of Innocence, by Keith Driskill

Keith Driskill is a simple man who lives a simple life with his four children in Spanish Fork, Utah, and that simplicity comes through on his latest album of solo acoustic guitar instrumentals.

The CD contains nine intricately crafted and lyrically beautiful compositions that, as the album title implies, will quietly whisk you away to a kinder, gentler, more peaceful and tranquil state of mind. Driskill’s complex finger-picking style yields sensitive lead lines, dynamic bass rhythms, and soothing arpeggios that slowly and softly work their way into your soul. Before you know it, you’re enveloped in a serene sanctuary of sound.

The recording impresses on a technical level as well. The audio quality is clear and crisp, and the mix is balanced well. The result is pure sonic heaven.

At just about 40 minutes in length, the album is short enough to enjoy several times over, especially if you have a long commute. And this is one of those albums that you won’t tire of listening to endlessly.
