The Network Man

This album follows the journey of The Network Man, a high-powered high tech executive in search of his true values and priorities in life.

The Network Man succeeds extremely well in business despite the demented pace and demands of the high tech world; however his personal life is quickly falling apart. He tries to forget his worries and parties out of control when he goes Out for Fun. Through blind ambition, we see him climbing the corporate ladder in Don't Look Back. The Network Man is Lookin' at a Breakdown when this craziness goes on for too long and he does indeed break down. He recalls an earlier depression of his college days when he was Riding in the Dark and he begins to Retreat from this desperate state so he can reflect on his life. He recalls happier days when he first met his wife in the Market Blues (She's So Cool) and the good times he had with his kids inventing stories about the Tiger Dog. The Network Man begins to turn the corner when he has A Much Better Day and finally sorts out his priorities in The Network Man (Reprieve). We hope you enjoy the highs and lows of our voyage with The Network Man. Thank you for listening.
