Sven B. Schreiber The sticker "Keep it Closed" almost inevitably invites to open this door - or to peek into this album, whatever you prefer. I did it - the latter, that is - and liked pretty much what I found. The music is arranged quite opulently with respect to "Arches" standards, featuring several guest appearances, including two brass virtuosos from the world-famous "Admiral Leonard's Royal Orchestra". Well, er... don't know this combo, to be honest, but heck - those guys can play as flawlessly as a MIDI machine! Favorite track: Logan Park.

about

Keep it Closed - a stairway fire door photo inspired this album. Leaving a long held residence, light rail stations, new beginnings in far away lands, opening up, freaking out and finally calming down with the help of a snoezelen room. So, open up! and let's go!
Enjoy peace and love,
The Arches
