Rafter Roberts – Inspiration/Split Decision/Your War

This three song medley seems to work together as one symphony. “When you meet someone inspirational, it is wonderful.” There is indeed wonder and inspiration here. The next song in the series actually imitates a debate musically, with the end an aural ‘split decision’. The final song in the set has the aural representation of war, with brief periods of silence to enhance the reality of a battlefield. It’s easy to be fooled by the sound of slapped together. But, each of these cuts develop with a planned personality, which informs me that this is not music to dismiss, but consider deeply. Shoutouts for Interlude, Merchandise and Peace. Rafter Roberts
