A great song! Westerville South did a great job of portraying it in this year's WGI competition!

Of all the Pat Metheny recordings I own, Still Life Talking is the most musically cohesive, carrying the listener through a series of well-crafted melodies and hooks. But Secret Story is the most personal. Pat puts so much raw, intense emotion into this recording, and it shows (Always and Forever is dedicated to his parents, for example). He melds together widely disparate styles of musical expression and is yet able to make a unifying whole out of the parts. The integration of guitar and keyboard sounds with a first-rate chamber orchestra works very well -- it's actually a great vehicle for a classical music buff to understand Metheny's remarkable musical mind.

Simply an amazing cd full of rich textures and melodies. I loved "Sunlight", simple yet absolutely beautiful.

His absolute masterpiece. This is where he synthesizes all his other styles and incorporates them somewhere on this album. From Mays'cresendo piano bursts to the melancholy accordion sound on Antonia. I literally wore out my original cd (it cracked!) and a year later when I bought another, still timeless. Listen sometime with headphones.
