ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE REALITY EXPRESS
A Song-by-Song Review
By: Jenn Mitchell of Screamer Magazine
It was my distinct pleasure to spend an early morning waking up to the music of The Reality Express by
Rick Moses. I must admit, as an avid David Bowie fan, I was immediately struck by the similarities
between Bowie and Moses’s vocal style. This set the stage for my entire listening experience- one
which I was eager to have as each song ended and the next began.
As a music enthusiast, I am generally skeptical of new music in today’s world. Having been a teen in
the 1980’s, I still find my musical tastes and preferences nostalgic for classic, soft and hard rock from
both the 70’s and 80’s, though, admittedly, there are some newer bands of today that pop up on my
playlist from time to time.
That said, I was pleasantly surprised to find that The Reality Express offered the perfect blend of both
yesteryear and modern sounds. I was hooked from the first track, Reflected Light. Before I break this
review down into specifics, it’s important to note that album reviewers have their own unique method
of actually writing the review. For me, I like to listen to the album twice. On the first go around, I play
the album in completion while laying back with my eyes shut to ‘feel’ it. On my second listening, I take
notes as to what comes to my mind in almost a gut reaction which I then I jot down on paper. This
review is no exception to my rule. So without further adieu, these were my impressions:
1. Reflected Light- Rick’s vocals and delivery reminded me of David Bowie a bit (not just in this song,
but many of them). I like the beat- very hopeful. The guitar playing really shines through beautifully.
2. California Night- This sounds like a long-distance driving song. The beat 'drives' it and makes me
feel I am on a journey.
3. Solve This Crime- The opening reminds me of the song by Double called "Captain of Her Heart" a
little bit- not in a rip-off sort of way- just the vibe. I could potentially hear this on a soft rock/adult pop
contemporary station easy. Maybe even a new-age station. Mellow. Relaxing. Determined.
4. The Arctic Circle- I like the story of this song and how Moses expresses that. His vocals have a
hopeful feeling to them that he emotes very nicely. Points for using "frozen tundra" in a song lyric. You
don't hear that every day!
5. Sirens of Titan- Kind of an America (band) vibe a bit here (think "Sister Golden Hair" mixed with
"Horse with No Name"). It's a saga.
6. Emily- Nice funky start to this song. I think I hear a little Bruce Springsteen-esque to his voice in his
one, too, and that is always a good thing in my book.
7. Zombies with Spoons- Just the name alone is attention-grabbing. Plus there's that trend with zombies
going on, so I could see how net radio and maybe some indie radio stations would want in on this song.
It's got commercial appeal from a musical standpoint, too. Kind of a country-vibe to it, so I'd be curious
if this track would appeal to an indie country station.
