Vandals At The Gates Of Reason-Paul McClelland (spring, 2013)



This collection has a darker tone than the usual musical fare, as the words and music try to describe my feelings on the slow but steady decay of societal civilization and the human condition's fall from moral and ethical grace. It also took longer to record and mix than other collections. From songs about overly accessible electronic media, terrorist threats on the horizon and shooting people for instant 'celebrity' to lost feelings and ideals and a world moving too fast for many millions to keep up with, these compositions describe people not only doing the wrong things for the wrong reasons, but in some cases, the right things for the wrong reasons, as well. All songs written, performed and produced in the home studio by Paul McClelland.

1. Vandals at the Gates of Reason
2. Wolf at your Door
3. Can't See the Forest, Too Many Trees
4. Noise
5. The Sad Parade
6. There's a Big Storm Coming
7. Everybody Needs Something to Believe In
8. I Think I'll Shoot Someone
9. Reason from the Ruin
10. It's the 21st Century

Happy Birthday, Mary (spring, 1990)-Paul McClelland

A song for my Godchild on her 1st birthday. She is quite a few birthdays past that now, but I recently found the cassette master tape from 1990, and I wish her a happy birthday once again, using the original birthday wish from 23 years ago.
