Beyond the Sunrise – Album Reviews

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Beyond the Sunrise’

Beyond the Sunrise is the fourth album from ambient artist, Carl Borden, who made his 2016 debut on the Real Music label with Echoes of Bliss. The music on Beyond the Sunrise is very peaceful and ambient with shimmering layers of sound and electronic instrumentation. One of the ten tracks is more traditionally structured and melodic, but this is mostly ambient music designed to calm, relax and soothe – and who couldn’t use more of that right now?

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Beyond the Sunrise’

I believe that Carl’s music is going to emerge as a force to be reckoned with in the coming months and years… I give him a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this wonderful album.

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Beyond the Sunrise’

Beyond the Sunrise is another faultless release in the catalogue of artist Carl Borden; it is an album that is cathartic and therapeutic, a release that touches the emotions and hugs the heart, and a must buy for all those that adore to be truly moved by the music they listen to.

ALBUM REVIEW – ‘Beyond the Sunrise’

Beyond The Sunrise is beauty, elegance, consistency, diversity, and everything one could expect from a keyboard-based instrumental new age recording. I do understand the hours of work that goes into arranging compositions, putting them together, using the right instruments and effects, then recording something cohesive and pleasing for a perspective audience. Carl Borden ticks all the boxes and I am sure you will love his work after one listen. Your entire being will melt like butter on a hot summer day, it is perfect for stress relief from start to finish.

Absolutely perfect for meditation, massage, peaceful sleep, or just plain relaxation. And if you don’t remember what that is, exactly, you’ll want to immerse yourself in this. It will take you well beyond the day and into new horizons.
