AQUARIAN AGE: Birth"I do have to say that 'Down to the Top' has been one of the few songs I go to, to uplift me at times. It's a favourite." (Vesa, Ontario, Canada)
"Love is Blind - This song came straight out of the gate with a funky riff.
This is a funky tune where the bass player is straight gettin funky. The lyrics and vocals are excellent. It's a groove that sounds like it's out of the 70's with a 90's feel if that's possible. Let's try this.."A modern song with an excellent 70's-like groove" Instruments were blazin and the guitar solo was a definite "ON HIT". WOULD DEFINITELY PAY TO SEE THESE GUYS LIVE!!!
Mountain Of Fools - Damn These guys are jammin. They have a groove that is undeniably DA BOMB!! (Another for the ***HOT LIST***) I'm truly diggin on that bassist..he is in A ZONE The vocals are tight too....this is a great tune. I also checked out their live stuff on their page..they are a far cry from "STUDIO"..these guys are FOR REAL!!
OH SHIT..I have to take a quick pause cause I'm definitely rockin to this cut..it even has hints of the old "George Clinton" or groups of that era. gonna listen again. Also adding these guys to my favorites..Man they are definitely kickin. The further you go into the song..the TIGHTER it gets!!! Nice break downs, Nice bkg vox at the end..this song has it all. I'm truly truly impressed." (P.Blake)
"A round and fine thing the boys of Aquarian Age delivered here. The Funk/Jazz band from Upper Austria for sure got something cooking and there is rumor that some people in California are running around on the beach with their mp3s (for more info visit their homepage). But lets come to the point and talk about the CD:
It begins with â€œLove is Blindâ€ which enchants with a cool text (â€˜I thought religious prudish moral code is completely out of dateÂ´) and an easygoing groove, generating a cool and airy attitude to life. The song â€˜Mountain of Foolsâ€™ is more or less a reckoning with the blindness of the world, text and music going together very well.
â€˜With my eyesâ€™ is a first-rate song for cuddling and â€˜Down to the Topâ€™ is a top-quality catchy tune. Especially the bass is bad ass without end. Cool thing and then thereÂ´s the extremely catchy refrain. As closure for this ride â€œSweet Love Of Mineâ€ is coming trough the speakers. Again cool bassline and the cool vocal part at the end which then is becoming a duet is for sure something.
And thatâ€™s that then. With 5 songs and a running time of about 20 mins â€œBIRTHâ€ is a ep, but better less and high quality than much and a lot of crappy fills. Not the case here.
Overall 20 minutes of cool and good music. Play it, relax, groove, enjoy." (Musikmagazin.at)
"Aquarian Age - first of all, great background on your page! Silky smooth vocals by artist extraordinairre Christian Grill will mellow you out in "Sweet Love of Mine". Excellent guitars in all of these songs (I must say I'm favorably biased to that funk sound). Great feel and good songwriting in "Down to the Top" - one of my favorites. Gotta give it up to the bass solo on this one!
Give Aquarian Age a full listen and you may find yourself adding their CD to your shopping cart! Great listening with definate radio ready cuts primed for high rotation.
I can't tell which is better - the instrumentation, vocals, or songwriting. All of them just fab!" (Team Faithgroove)
