Todd Whisler - Unrequited CD - Free Shipping
Wrought from the heartache of a love offered but never returned nearly thirty years earlier, Unrequited sifts through the ashes of the discarded dreams of youth; through the unattainable ideal of perfect love and assesses both the lessons learned as well as the damage done. Audacious and demanding, bold and adventurous, the two CD set embraces multiple genres as it shifts seamlessly from one failed attempt to realize the fairy tale and bring meaning to life to the next. Todd’s 21 year musical journey ends exactly where it began on 1998’s release Terry - pining for someone he cannot have; carrying the torch of unspoken desire for someone who views him as only a friend. And yet somehow the album is so much more than its lyrical content. Both complicated and demanding, attractive and enticing, Unrequited consists of interwoven songs that shift easily from the pit of silent despair to the ultimate joy of releasing oneself from perceived failure. It is both coronation and celebration - the culmination of 20 years spent pursing the dream of making music that resonates long after its last note subsides. Just sit back, turn the lights off, turn the stereo up and let the magnitude of the spectacle wash over you.
