"......His debut album 'MELT'is without a doubt one of my favourite albums by an unsigned artist - and i ve heard plenty. Now Eden has released the long awaited( fofr me anyway)follow up, 'NO MIND'
A sadder , more subdued affair than 'Melt' , 'No Mind' showcases Edens humanity, delving deep inside his soul in search of the universe within him.This is the theme throughout No Mind giving the album much more focus than his debut............
Mo Mind isnt so much a collection of songs as it is a mosaic of feelings and vulnerability. As a result,it represents an important new dimension to this highly talented artist, already impressive capabilities.
This music needs to be heard.

" The initial response t hearing Mark Edens second album No Mind, is more than likely to be "How has a singer / Songwriter possessing such talent remained unsigned? "
This is sertainly a valid question. Dare I say" He is one of the most popular and most sucessful unsigned artist's I know of. Boasting a loyal live performance following and being voted for best unsigned artist in 2001, surley justifies my claim.......
The melodies born from this musician, are nothing short of harmonious and aurally pleasing.No Mind is however one of those albums that needs to be listened to a few times before you can reach that distinct appreciation.
The exceptional beauty of No Mind is definitely worth the wait though.If Edens music were personified his vocals and instruments would be holding hands together.......
Providing a sense of purity as he captures an emotion and then allows 'the music to write itself
Adding to the sense of integrity is the tribal element existing in most of his music.Their is a sheer honesty in this music that cannot be ignored..........
A magnificent awareness of music is evident and the unpretentious nature of Edens composition is truly inspiring .
He is taking music back to its original element-propelling sincerity ,charm and most importantly ,integrity."

JANUARY 2002: CD Launch
Eden and his band launched 'No
Mind' at The Evelyn Hotel in Fitzroy. Some would say that the
sound that night was bigger than Robbie Sharvishnu. The MCG sound in downtown
Fitzroy!!! The follow up gig the next night at The Laundry, also in Fizroy,
was a' beautiful personal affair' according to Mark.
