The style is country rock!!! MUSIC QUOTES Country music is supposed to be the music of the blue collar worker, the anthem of everyday people, and that's exactly how Peter Daskalov or Peter Danny Band sings it. "Rest in Time" is a stellar country album. Peter Daskalov is a promising new singer/songwriter and has his own unique sound on every track. He wrote or co-wrote all the tracks on this album, and his voice is rugged and home-grown. There is a traditional outlaw bent in the arrangement; there's a brutal honesty in the lyrics; there's a yearning in the vocals; and there's some great country music on this album. This CD will make you forget your worries for 42 minutes. - AMAdea Records, BULGARIA.
