"Chronic Empire," the latest from the brilliant Robin Stanley, is a soothing collection of guitar-driven pop/classic rock tunes! Kicking off with the unforgettable "Once Upon a Time," one cannot help but notice Robin's robust vocal appeal. His unique, graceful tone breathes serenity into his compositions! Masterful instrumentation is added to the list of accolades for "Chronic Empire," as heard in the melodic harmonicas, mesmerizing bass lines, and clever guitar leads of "Born Under a Bad Sign." Moreover, "One Way avenue" shows off Robin's keen sense for catchy choruses and relevant, well-crafted lyrics. Best of all, this CD is wonderfully produced with clarity and skill! Die-hards of Beatles-reminiscent pop and Tom Petty-infused classic rock won't be able to turn this one off!
