well executed!"

how you put all the different elements together. It's not just a music album. GREAT GREAT JOB!"

"I love the way the melodic voices would play with each other at times as a conversation... Overall,
the feel is great. The mix of dialog and music is just right, and when the songs kick in, they’re very good...
It will be exciting to see where you take this in the future... Thinking as a dad, this would be awesome for a road trip!"

"enchanting, ethereal and wonderfully creative. As someone who has written/produced musical theater 
for young audiences, (My Perfect Pet, NYMF 2012) this piece has such tremendous potential"
Jeff Eisenberg

"Tonight I am listening to "What Dreams Are Made Of" by AODE. It is basically a CD about a fantasy world in which the band AOEDE travels into another world and becomes the muse of this imaginary world. It is absolutely brilliant and creative both from a musical and audio theatrical standpoint! It has a very 'musical' type of setup to it. I think they should consider getting a touring theater company to put this on stage! Although it was writen for children, I think it is enjoyable by all ages! It has a 'Lord of the Rings' type of mood to it, but much different with an awesome story line. I am very impressed by both the musical diversity and excellent performances by the musicians. There are so many different styles of music, and the actors are just as good as the musicians. This CD is a wonderful work of art! If you want to 'escape' our real world and enter a very cool and awesome imaginary world created by AOEDE, buy this CD!"
Kevin Lucas

"This project is very creative and unique! I really enjoyed the theatrical interpretation, the music, and the wonderful production. Kudos to everyone who participated in this project, and thank you for sharing, Lisa!"

"What an absolutely creative way to tell a story with the various characters and your music intertwined. The physical album presentation is very impressive too, nice job all around!"
Kevin Mongelli

"I love the story you've created with the narrations and additional components! Congrats! I definitely think this album is unique and wonderful."

"Dreams are made of music like this."

"This is an awesome job. The voice-overs and backing music are awesomely arranged."

"Wow, your CD is very dramatic I was transported to a whole Broadway production, YES my minds eye goes to many places, I loved it! I love how you guys open this story, defining the dream world. I listened to the whole story today and it was definitly worth the listen and the journey was HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL!"

"You have a wonderful singing and spoken word voice. The subject was very interesting. Everyone wonders what dreams are, from childhood to adulthood. The storyline was very creative and keeps one attention. I found myself making up my own music video in my mind as I listened to the pieces."
Alan Storeygard

"I just listened to the whole thing all the way through, and absolutely love it. Very exciting, and empowering… we do indeed create our own dreams and realities. Two of the tracks that really jumped out at me were Phobeter - Chocolate Nectar, and Dreamyard I Choose the Muse. Wonderful music, along with your story, which is quite exciting too… I imagine this is perfect for pre-teens/teens…."
