When you listen to a David Darling composition, you quickly realize that what you’re experiencing is similar to standing in front of a Da Vinci or a Rodin. A feeling of exquisite beauty wraps around you, leaving you speechless. You never find yourself asking how is this done or what makes this beautiful. It’s a feeling of simple enjoyment in its purest state. David’s cello work is always the feature. There is some light accompaniment throughout. The sound is at once organic, etherial and liquid, and before you know it, you’ve fallen deeply into it. From the first notes of“Laughing At The Moon,” with its playful kalimba rhythm, you set off on a journey that takes you through many emotional states. The song is pure joy, with each instrument playing with the other like children in a field whose imaginations have been set free. The album progresses at a gentle pace, ending with “Untold Beauty,” whose title sums up the entire record.
