The music on this album is very beautiful and complex. It reminds you of walking in the woods of Colorado on a perfect spring day when all the flowers are blooming and colorful. The flute is a perfect whimsical instrument that takes you on this journey. True to Fort Collins form there is also a hint of country in the twang of the guitar. If that wasn’t Fort Collins enough for you, Phil Turk is a statistics professor at Colorado State when he is not making music. His vocals are not exactly what you would expect to go with the music. They seem like something from a gospel record, or something fit for a ballad. With that being said, it works in a new kind of way and creates a new kind of genre. Turk is very talented; he even sings the song “All There Is To Say” in Chinese on the last track of the CD.  “True Happiness Under the Autumn Leaves” is one of the best tracks on the album; it Is very relaxing and makes you feel the calm that comes with Autumn.
