The problem with reviewing Bill Dyckns music lies not with the sound, but the selection. Varied and diverse, picking just one track to analyze was a challenge, but one I was up for. This is not to say that "When Tribes Ruled" is the pick of the litter, it's just one of the many that standout for composition and an tone-seducing quality. The melody hooks you in the beginning with visions of an early morning camp, complete with the sunrise peeking over the hills, horses tethered by a nearby stream and morning dew melting slowly away as the tribe begins a new day. The tinkling effect is consistent, but rises in intensity with each passing stanza. As the song progresses you feel the power of the Native American spirit, soaring through the earth like an eagle on the wing. Very emotional rhythmic pattern and progression shines through this track. Descriptive of title and era, it takes you the place when tribes really did rule. A longing comes through the melody to be in that place again, to be a part of what once was and wish it could be so again. The song moves your soul and plucks at your heartstrings, sad and hopeful at the same time, it takes you there. A song I could hear repeatedly without losing interest and one which deserves to be loaded on any i-pod. So serene and tranquil, without a doubt one at the top of this list. As for the rest of Mr. Dyckns posted tracks, they all have the same level of professionalism, each one unique in their direction and eloquently produced. To give them all the justice they deserve would require much more time than I'm allowed with my writings, suffice it say, a beautiful collection indeed.
