Peace Songs For A Better World is a rich, international compilation album of English language original songs selected by Artists For A Better World from hundreds of submissions. The superbly crafted and lyrically outstanding gems presented employ a variety of styles, voices and musical talents to focus attention on the need for peace and understanding. With works by eight artists from the U.S., five from across Canada and entries from Norway and Australia, the disc shifts tone and tempo several times, including poignantly soulful ballads, hard-edged polemics, ironic and satirical jabs and lilts and a couple of tour de force romps through toe-tapping de facto anthems, evoking moods dolorous, angry, earnestly hopeful and triumphantly cheerful by turns. The high production values of each track and evenness of the overall sound is unusual in a compilation of such widespread contributors. Delightfully, the songs are each strong enough as compositions that you don’t even have to be a political animal to find this collection of tunes both a provocative inspiration and a musical comfort you’ll happily enjoy time and time again.
