"Seven Conversations" Reviews


Echoes:

"TO BE ABLE TO CREATE A SPACE, STAY WITHIN IN, AND MAKE IT SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT TO LEAVE IS A TRUE ART. THIS IS AMBIENT MUSIC AT A HIGH MUSICIANSHIP LEVEL."


Exposé:

"SEVEN CONVERSATIONS MAKES FOR A MAJESTIC AND MIND-OPENING COLLECTION OF PIECES THAT GENERATE FURTHER INTEREST WITH EACH SUBSEQUENT PLAY."


Something Else Music Reviews:

"JEFF OSTER, VIN DOWNES AND TOM EATON PROVE THAT AMBIENT OR NEW AGE MUSIC DOESN’T HAVE TO BE PLANNED TO BE GOOD. IN THEIR CAPABLE HANDS, IT’S JUST AS VIABLE TO CREATE THIS KIND OF MUSIC SPONTANEOUSLY."


Wind and Wire:

"WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH MY DEFINITION (OF A SUPERGROUP) OR NOT, THERE’S NO DENYING THAT THE WORD "SUPER" CAN BE APPLIED TO THE ALBUM FROM JEFF OSTER, VIN DOWNES, AND TOM EATON: SEVEN CONVERSATIONS. ONE COULD HAVE THIS AMAZING ALBUM ON REPEAT AND HAVE ONE'S DAY PASS IN A BLISSED STATE OF, DARE I SAY IT, UTTERLY BEAUTIFUL RELAXATION."


Artisan Music Reviews:

"THESE THREE ARTISTS (JEFF OSTER, VIN DOWNES, TOM EATON) HAVE BEEN DOING WHAT THEY DO FOR SUCH A LONG TIME BECAUSE THEY LOVE THE MUSIC. SEVEN CONVERSATIONS IS A THINKING PERSON’S MUSIC. YOU PUT THIS ON AND YOU LOSE TRACK OF TIME. YOU PONDER. BUT MOST OF ALL, YOU ESCAPE. THIS IS GREAT MUSIC DOING ITS JOB."


Contemporary Fusion Reviews:

"THERE ARE FEW GROUPS IN THE AMBIENT ARENA WHO STAND THE TEST OF TIME... THIS TRIO IS ONE OF THEM... I GIVE JEFF, VIN AND TOM A MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED RATING, WITH A PERFECT ENERGY QUOTIENT SCORE OF 5.0. THAT MEANS THAT THEY GET A “PICK” FROM ME FOR “BEST AMBIENT RELEASE.”
