Review of The Raven


A excellent audio interpretation of a classic text with a hip score and narration. I am a sucker for poetry and Halloween is my favorite season. This piece brings a modern sensibility to the Raven, sophisticated music and vocal performance make this an excellent way to note the holiday. At 9 minutes the piece has an engaging speed and immediacy, the proper scary vibe and the musical score is worth the time alone. My background is in radio drama and this has the kind of hook that we always look for to get the listener in and hold their attention. If you have a slot for some drama at Halloween, take a listen here.
