Friendsound is a one off album side project from 60s pop group Paul Revere & The Raiders.
The first part of the first track is rather bouncy and colorful, lots of personality and a general nice sound, brought together with steady beat of guitar chords, drums and wind instruments at first, a mellow piece of music and very pleasant to listen. Further on is a quick burst of randomness, the life of the party. A jumbled mess of sounds and instruments, put together with thought and the perfect outcome was produced; a happy, upbeat part of the extremely emotional track. A rather laid-back second part to the first track, a mixture of wind, string and percussion instruments and very relaxing to listen to. Its calmness and smooth musical flow really takes you somewhere else, its a truly feel-good piece of music. Its change of type of sound makes it fresh throughout and doesn't leave you looking at how much time is left before it ends and you can finish the song. A ghostly recording of a school playground (I assume) and a child's speech is spooky, yet touching and adds a nice, tidy finish to the first track.
The second track combines the random with the calm, with surreal sound effects dotted in every so often, giving the effect of a very strange dream sort of thing. I'm not exactly the best at explaining things, just go listen for yourself if it sounds good to you.
I really liked this album, and urge fans of ambiance to download it to enjoy it as much as I have. Five Stars.
