Forefathers of the neofolk world, the music of changes is a stripped down affair of acoustic guitar and vocals. This is folk music in its very essence. Old hippies that dabbled with various occult organizations? Sure.. and they were there back when these movements were a fresh approach to American counter-culture. But really, what more do you ask from artists than some sincerity in the art that they create? Changes has that sincerity aplenty. Definitely a relaxing band to listen to.. which wouldn't be far removed from one of the better coffee house folk acts you may bump into in a decent scene. The message has that timeless feel that indeed sums up their name. The fascination of seeing time move on, cycle upon cycle, generation after generation. The explorations of men moving through life and developing their wisdom as time marches on. Start with "Fire of Life" for sure.
