Album Notes
"Dolph Chaney, singer/songwriter, sashays thru pleasant acoustic-guitar (and sometimes a hint of synth) accompanied soft pop tones, poetical excursions supported by subtle supple melodies. Intriguing. Bittersweet romance, lost love, and more expressed elegantly in capable verse: "I held your present in the past, and I would like to take it back. I know, before this line is cast, your baited breath is what I lack" (from "Out of the Picture"); "I throw a rock at your head, but I miss you" (from "Miss You"); "And your smile in the fog just fades in a half-decade's serenades, like the moment I lost sight of you through the windshield" (from "New Years"); and "Lie to me, and let me lie with you. I'm tired of the truth; I just want you" (from "Let Me Lie")."
-- Riff Gibson, Raging Smolder Music Review

"Chaney's very amusing bio and a 1988 endorsement by Eugene Chadbourne as proof that "musical insanity is alive and well" led me to expect something rather more wacky than New Bird actually is. In fact, with the exception of "Ocean," a brief and peculiar ode to a brand of saltwater nasal spray, Chaney comes off as a tender, compassionate, erudite songsmith, with a wry sense of humor that deflates any encroaching sappiness. Affairs of the heart are a primary concern, but the spirit gets its due in several songs that exult Chaney's faith and love of God with uncommon subtlety. By emphasizing his personal relationship with the Almighty and eschewing proselytizing, he's a more successful missionary than more overtly "Christian" artists I've encountered."
-- Jim Santo, Demo Universe
