Hear what fans/industry are saying about the music:

"I am driving in my car and flipping through the radio channels...I hear nothing that sounds remotely as good as this...why?" Sumo...garageband.com reviewer

"I'm not a big pop star fan but I like this!" Lil Jamal...garageband.com reviewer

"Good pop/punk song (Dr. Jekyl) with awesome melody and quirky vocal lines. Great story, groove, and dynamics. Can you say Queen meets Barenaked Ladies and XTC? Uh-huh...I thought you could."

"These songs are well done. They are melodic and have a nice focus on big vocals. The lead vocal performances are very strong throughout...your interpretation of If These Walls Could Speak is great...you totally made it your own." Taxi review

"The song (Dr. Jekyl) sounds like a clever amalgam of David Bowie, Elvis Costello, and Kurt Cobain." Curtis Lowell...makeastar.com

Smooth Vocals, Engaging compositions
A wonderful mix of relaxing pop and rock. Should be played numerous times.

Donald Hester

One sweet album
Now this is why we need independant labels. Douglas Rich is amazing! The songs are light, lyrical and melodic, especially his original compositions. The perfect CD for a lazy afternoon.

Refreshing sounds! Sweet, melancholy and upbeat!
Such a refreshing mixture of sounds and tempo! My three favorites are: "If These Walls Could Talk"- so sweet and melancholy. "Dr. Jekyl"- lots of fun, reminds me of the "Rocky Horror Picture Show" (haha) and "You Dont Know Me"- very upbeat way to make his point. Sign me up for the whole CD! (grin)
