A concept CD in the style of 70's prog rock. Sounds similar to Genesis, Pink Floyd. Celestial Adventures is a trip back to the 70's. It's filled with Mellotrons and ARP's, odd time signatures, and a non obtrusive narrative, filled with different characters which bring the story to life. The story revolves around a man named Duke who is having a bit of a crisis in his life. In short, he is at a crossroad, and over the course of two nights, and two very unique dreams, he is able to plot a new course for the future.
