Peter Himmelman

Album Review: Peter Himmelman - There is No Calamity (9/10)

Peter Himmelman is a Grammy- and Emmy-winning film and television composer, author and lecturer. But here, he gets back to one of his favorite occupations: rock star! True to form, he brings a collection of songs from a therapeutic and thinking man’s perspective. His social awareness sets the pace, with the Elvis Costello-like “245th Peace Song.” From there the album follows a path that shines a diverse spotlight on the human condition. Examples include the spiritually uplifting “Love is What Carries Us Away” and “Fear is Undoing,” balanced with the darker piano ballad “Rich Men Rule the World.”
