ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What do you get when you combine an edgy guitarist weaned
on Black Sabbath in his early days, and a converted early
Genesis-loving keyboardist?......

You get an interesting mix of orchestral & pastoral
synthesized soundscapes with a little bit of evil thrown
in for good measure!

One person - two polar opposite musical genres providing
the schizophrenic stylistic influence. You do the math
on this one!

It's a collision of synthetic major seventh chords and
over-driven, vibrated guitar notes.......it's Tony Banks
meets Tony Iommi.

Exploring the themes of isolation, desperation, and the desire to advance beyond stagnation, "No Way Out" paints a sometimes dark, sometimes melancholic picture of a reality
that Dante would be proud to describe - all this without
sacrificing nice, melodic hooks!

Sit back and enjoy.......and bring your girlfriend along!

Great chill out CD - atomospheric and spacey sounding almost new-age
it’s really atmospheric and spacey sounding almost new-age in a way. The guitar sound is very Leslie West/Tony Iommi yet the keyboards sound prog rock - cool contrast!

NewEARS

Well crafted instrumentals with memorable melodies
Having heard Rich Casey's - No Way Out CD a few times now it never grows old. This all insturmental CD with keyboards being the emphasize here comprise of well songs with some memorable melodies. Leaning towards the new age spectrum on the prog genre this will please fans who enjoy symphonic music.

Add this to your frequent player list!
First I found two CDs in one. Meaning two of the songs tend to fit in a harder prog rock style like Dream Theater or Flower kings and the rest a more relaxed but no way uninteresting Allen Parsons style. A lot of thought in here with many sound, rythum, and style changes. Yes not a Phil Collins every song sounds the same. Each one here has it's own character the synth 12 strings worked very well! The studio mastering is top notch to match the talent of Rich. This is no demo CD. This is a every day player you and your friends will enjoy with it not being an intrusive sound.

Very Cool. Progressive Rock for the new millenium.
Rich Casey’s release, “No Way Out”, immediately put me in mind of the quintessential gothic aura. His music though very rich and melodic, casts many dark and intriguiging shadows. The tunes, especially “Just Another Day” are full of longing and the sometimes futile quest for answers and fulfillment, while the instrumental “Amethyst”, is an exercise in audible light refraction. Outrageously sick drum licks on “Rat’s Ass” and “White Swan (with duck sauce)” by Steve Chaggaris, soaring rich vocals on “Just Another Day” by Gabrielle Agachiko, and Walter Stickle’s sax on “Sometimes and Island” are interesting choices that do make sense.

My personal favorite is “Morpheus Takes a Cat Nap/Nightmare in Istanbul”. Trippy stuff…reminiscent of old school prog rock, yet somehow very different.

Very Cool, though I may be biased.

Great CD
Good mix... I like the early Genesis sound. Great CD to sit back with a coffee or cold beer.
