Product notities

It seems that every great artist has an album that represents a pinnacle as they grow through their creative process. For the Beatles it was "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band". For the Beach Boys it was "Pet Sounds". For Pink Floyd it was "Dark Side of the Moon". For Sounding Rick that pinnacle is "Dinosaur Bones". One thing I like about Ricks music is that it's always fresh and full of surprises. He doesn't seem to follow a cookie cutter formula and on this album's 13 tracks, he explores styles as varied as American rock to jazz to funk to world music and more! Unlike his 2009 release "Blabbermouth" where Rick employed a host of background singers and side musicians, he recorded "Dinosaur Bones" using just a drummer, bassist and multi instrumentalist brass genius. All the keyboards, guitars and vocals were performed by Rick. From the lush vocal harmonies of the opening number "Tuesday Morning" you can hear the Todd Rundgren influence. It is clear that working with Utopia bass player and longtime Rundgren collaborator Kasim Sulton has really impacted Rick's production style. Rick admits that he was also hugely influenced by Steely Dan's clean production style. "Black and White", "Five Body Blade" and "Media Mania" are cool songs that show the depth of Rick's bag of aural tricks and his affinity for alternative adult contemporary. The title track "Dinosaur Bones", is a funny poke at the music business and how it chews up young talent and uses it till it is no longer relevant. The fictional character in the song is a conglomeration of players Rick has worked with over the years. If you have headphones and want to take a trip without leaving your room, "The Weather" is a spectacular listen and cheaper than airfare. It is hypnotic and a pleasure to hear. Inspired by news of another slimy politician's infidelity and his secret trips to Argentina, the humorous track "Politician" incorporates recordings of indigenous percussion tracks Rick captured while in the streets of Haiti, Costa Rica, Panama and Columbia. The album wraps with "Mission Control" a biting narrative about BP's Gulf Oil Spill. "Growing up watching NASA go to the moon and the guys in the white shirts handle setbacks and disasters made me wonder why BP didn't have the same thing", says Rick. In my opinion, the sign of a great album is it's' ability to grow on you with each listen. Before writing this review I spent two weeks listening to a promo copy and my favorite songs change with my mood (that hasn't happened in a long time). All in all, "Dinosaur Bones" is a triumph of Rick's songwriting genius and further cements him as one of the greatest American artists yet to be widely discovered. Susan Thomas.
