CD Review
Review by: Len Rogers

     Satisfaction comes from many things and in many ways. Not straying far from that statement Linq delivers more than just satisfaction, musically and lyrically with "Disconnect". A collection of mostly original songs. With one very appropriate Tom Petty cover. "Disconnect" treats the ear with pure musical mastery. Challenging the mind with lyrics which dance with the musical accompaniment while spurring thoughts and emotions. 

     Eleven songs complete the library of "Disconnect". Brought to life by Linq of course, and her more than apt band; June Millington on guitar and lots more, and Lee Madeloni on drums, bass and likewise lots more. The vocals and accompaniment add rich texture The music of "Disconnect" wraps and welcomes you into a musical experience of artistic journey through the advances and pitfalls of technology and 'being or getting connected' in our lives. Leaving no detail unattended, Linq brings the musical, social, and artistic values to all avenues of "Disconnect". That includes all aspects of the artwork and packaging of the CD. Design and graphics by Lisa Hoag provide a striking visual taste of what is to come musically. In a word, compelling.

     In the opening song "Seneca Falls To Selma", Linq fans will recognize the relevance and beauty of Linq's lyrics and artistic passion. Throughout "Disconnect" these powerful lyrics as with, "Patriarch" are enhanced and empowered by the music. Linq makes the point that protest and art can be, and indeed are, combined to create a fulfilling and thought provoking experience. Linq brings several major equal rights events into the song to show that struggles like equality are more common to all then we even imagined. But still leaving you with a warm sing-a-long experience to further empower the impact of her song. In other words, Linq's music will and does bring pleasure and....yes even thought!

     Themes and topics range from technical disconnect as with the title track, to the social disconnection of bullying in the award winning "Oh Bully". Songs of hopeful dreams and wishes as in "Lady Of The Night" are side-by-side with tunes warning of impending darkness as shown in "Living On The Edge Of Disaster". The one cover a Tom Petty original, "Two Gunslingers", addresses the disconnect from violence as these two decide to 'take control of their lives now".  Linq shows and shares various forms of social and emotional disconnection. All carried by music that welcomes and playfully encourages you to listen, enjoy, and yes even think. Maybe not at the moment the song plays. Maybe not even in a hour. But at some moment, happily the music and lyrics return, and the wonder of understanding with thoughtful challenge pay tribute to the artistry known as Linq!

Check out all things Linq and get "Disconnect" at Linq's website!
