Music as Aural Art
As usual I listen to an album many, many times before I write a review. So was the case of Howard Ferre's Journey's End. When I looked up his bio, I realized that someone had hit the nail right on the head when it came to a descriptor of him . He is a sound designer. That is what I gleaned from his music. He sculpts, he shapes, he paints and he composes music in a physical way so that when it is heard, it takes solid form in the mind's eye. It is truly magic.

A Cohesive Vision
While Howard Ferré has been playing and performing music for over 25 years, this is his first solo release. The CD encompasses everything from the flowing ambiance of the first two tracks ("Before You" and "Wax Branches") to the bass-thumping chill of "Turning Point," featuring a brief burst of fiery electric guitar, to the piano-based ballad "Stained Glass Reflection" and the closing neo-classical, quasi-adagio "Journey's End." Despite the abundant variety, the overall musical vision is cohesive, showing different sides of this talented performer’s personality.

5 out of 5 stars Review by Matthew Forss
U.S.-based Howard Ferre explores the world of neo-classical, new age, and space music genres on Journey’s End. As a prolific theatrical music composer for nearly a quarter-of-a-century, Howard breathes life into the electronic sounds of deep space with instrumental percussion of an earthly origin. The ambient leanings and piano sounds provide a good mixture of influences for all the makings of a memorable album.

Hypnagogue Reviews Journey's End in Cinematic Style
Journey’s End perfectly showcases the wide scope of Ferré’s musicianship–not just his instrumental range or ability to write songs in several styles, but to tell a story with each piece that’s complete and understandable. On top of that, it all quite nicely stands up to repeat listens. A great end-of-day disc and a superb debut from Howard Ferré. This Journey’s End is clearly just the beginning.

Sonic Emmersion Review by Bert Strolenberg
The dreamy, imaginary impact of Ferré’s own created chill-out space is something one must like, certainly when one keeps in mind there’s a velvet, and very soft veil draped over his sound design. ...
