Randy Rose is definitely trying for some edgy, dark sound with this record, but never really reaches it.
This is a soundtrack for outer space, with all of its wonders and terrors.
It sure sounds dreamy and catchy, but its style definitely reigns over its substance.
Moving Pictures is yet another in a long line of pop groups who make music so sweet and catchy that it’s almost sickening.
These guys are obviously talented, too talented to be writing music that is too often bland and un-involving.
I’m sure you’ll find some of these songs play in your finer salons and clothing stores.
Much of the music seems too thickly enshrouded by its sonic fog to hold your interest for very long.
The songs fall in the verse-chorus-verse pattern in its purest and catchiest form.
At times, the album is a beautiful, eerie lullaby only to dissolve into sounds of gloom and despair.
The fact that I received this CD in the mail half an hour ago and I’m already gushing over it should say something for its quality.
