Billions and Billions - Billions and Billions

Study Album #3 brings us back to the USA with the self titled debut album Billions and Billions. Billions and Billions is the pen name for the Chicago artist Chris Katsaros who wrote and recorded the entire album.

Billions and Billions is an ambient rock piece totaling in at only 33 minutes. It's short, at times the volume and layering of the separate tracks (within one song) seems peculiar, and I am still left wondering about the sharp transition between Walking Growing and Knowing's distorted guitar riff to the echoing synth and clean guitar arpeggios of Ghost View. However this is still an impressive first album, and I look forward to hearing more from this artist.

The artist has made the album available at Bandcamp with another "name your own price" (free?) download. Check it out here: Billions and Billions

Keep Rocking.
