Chris Conway's latest songs album is a mellow reflection on time - amongst other things. There are songs of time travel, wishes, love, madness, paranoia, parents, farewells, and more. It's brimfull with his big warm sound, harmonies and mellow lyricism. There is quite a bit of ground covered - piano ballads, Celtic folk, folk, jazz, bossa nova, even acapella.
