Album: “Fatal Equation” by Gethyn Jones

Gethyn Jones’s “Fatal Equation”, a musical and storytelling fusion, showcases his dual skill of music and storytelling making him both a musical and narrative artist. This album, a dense mosaic of pop, rock, country, and indie sounds, that intertwine thoughts on different themes, touches my soul so deeply because of its lyrical depth and the emotions of each track. From the calm reflection of “Lavender” to the high-spirited grandeur of “Alright!”, each song effectively captures the different moods and emotions that we as humans experience.

Collaborating with Nick Bowen, we have come up with Fatal Equation. This is not just an album but a narrative experience performed by Coolstar. The first track, “How Could I Be So Wrong”, is an instant attention grabber, presenting a familiar folk-inspired vibe that will put everybody on their toes. The collaboration with Liam Wakefield and Lily Garland on selected tracks expands the variety, making the whole album very rich.

The special song “May December” with Erin Newman as guest vocalist, is also a great track. The musical arrangement which includes guitars, piano, and saxophone neatly fits the “lush” soundscape of the song and results in the perfect atmosphere that is in tune with the song’s lyrical complexity on the subject of deeply emotional entanglements.

“In Paradise” is the final song on the album, an epic six-and-a-half-minute tune, which highlights musically the album but also the story in the book builds on, leaving the listeners through their thematic exploration of love, challenge, and triumph. “Fatal Equation” serves not just as music, but as a critical dissection of the relationship between melody and narrative; it is a groundbreaking work in her career.
