ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Theo Massop is a west coast Canadian singer songwriter whose musical journey has taken him from church choirs to dance halls, night clubs, festivals and concert venues. His previous album "Voyager" gained him three charting singles in Canada, critical acclaim and international radio play.

Tom Harrison of the Vancouver Province newspaper said, "Massop is an able folk/pop writer. His songs have a contemporary polish and a measure of sophistication. He writes homilies with a rock edge whose wisdom occasionally hits the ground like a hundred pound rail."

Brian Hazelbower, CHLY radio programmer said, "There are ten solid rockin' tunes on Theo's CD 'Choices' and they all have something to say. I have dubbed it, thinkin' man's music."

Rick Salt, manager and chief engineer at Blue Truck Hotel studio said, " Theo's CD 'Choices' is one of the finest projects to come from this studio. Great songs and great performances."

Michael Baginski, reviewer for The Entertainer magazine said, "Massop's strengths lie in intelligent lyrics, catchy mid-tempo songs and ballads."

In the Victoria Times Colonist newspaper, John Hogbin wrote, "Massop has a pleasing voice and he takes the trouble to let the listener understand what he's singing."

Choices
I have been listening to Ted since he was in the J and T Combination back in the sixties. This is his tightest and best music so far. Every one needs to hear more new music from Ted!

Peter Pleyte

The power of positive thinking
Finding your inner strength, dreams of freedom, the hope for a better future, the power of positive thinking; It comes through in all of the numbers on this disc.

Benny Metten

stands on it's own merits
The music here simply stands on it's own merits. It brought to mind John Hiatt not only because of the vocal similarities, but also by his approach.

Thea and Ted

love it
The songs are extra beautiful to us, our favorite are in my dream and goodby. The website is real colorful and great. So is humming bird ,oh wat the dickens they are all great hard to pick a favorite.

THIS ALBUM ROCKS!!!
I wanted to leave my mark as the first of many reviewers to come... CHOICES is a great album by a great artist. It's rare that a 10 song collection is so entertaining and impeccably produced yet so cohesive and intelligently written. Well done!

Pam Edgar

I can't tell whether you're getting me into my head or out of it; both!
It is all about choices Theo or is Choices all about it? Well done! You sing from the heart with heart and shoot from the hip. I got to hear you at a MS event, got to know you through Songwriter's Circle, got to be grateful for your Choices. Your music is encouraging, supportive and hopeful. I so enjoy the way you placed your songs, with a story to it, wrapped in beautiful graphics with a bow of detail and passion. Choice ending by the way; did I say well done?!

Ron McKee


A nice bright opening that catches you right away. My fave's are Humming Bird, Start a Revolution, Good-bye, In My Dream, Draggin' Chains and Choices. Ah what the hey, I love it all! A great non-cluttered production and topical themes makes it a joy to listen to. Great harmonies, Great playing, Great Album! Good Work!

Ten well crafted songs
Ten well crafted songs in the roots rock genre about the choices we have to make in life are penned down by Massop and recorded with the finest session players he could find. Theo Massop offers us delicate, but solid rocking mid-tempo tunes that are ready for us to explore and enjoy. The latter we truly did. “Choices” offers you catchy tunes that are easy recognized and has a hum along quality of far above 10! In a typical singer-songwriter style, Massop brings his country music with a series of well thought lyrics!

“Full Circle” might sound a little depressive, but it’s the damn truth! Everything comes full circle sooner or later. Theo sings “Time Moves by to damn fast”! and I certainly agree with him. “Happy Man” is much more optimistic than “Full Circle”. In “Happy Man” Theo explains there is no greater joy, than bringing a smile to someone’s face! Try to be as optimistic as possible, cause it’s easy to find the dark side in everything! “Start a Revolution” is a worldwide appeal to change our way of live! Not by war or big protest, but by starting a personal revolution!

As said before, his lyrics are well thought and raise more questions then they give answers, but the man certainly has a point on many facts! The 10 songs are all equally as good and very entertaining at first level! However don’t forget to dig up the other levels as well starting with the lyrics.

I Have known Theo for 40 years.Played in a basement band when we were 17 years old.Lost touch many times.Was in Amsterdam When I heard his first album.I was in one of those coffee shops,you know the ones that the world raves about.Two of his songs came on .I had a tear in my eye when the radio D J said the name Theo Massop.I came back to Canada and found out his bro had passed.(love you Gerry)Any way Theo comes from a musical family.He has taken his music to a level his family did not expect,I`m sure.I realy like what you have done Theo.You did your mom proud I know.I remember when I went with you to piano lessons with I think it was gordy B.I had to wait outside while you had your lessons.Yor mom would always drill you and me if you went to your lessons.It has sure done you good to listen to your mom Theo.Love you Bro.John Bosma
