CD Reviews

Wayne J. Mitchell | Jersey City, NJ | 04/18/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this CD years ago for pennies. And it's been a friend ever since, making me laugh and making me think all in one sitting. Chris' cover painting matches the emotional range of his writing, and the rasp of an untrained, yet perfectly natural singing voice. He makes it seem so easy that you'd think any regular joe could pull it off - and he has. Doing the unremarkable - running away from the sophomore release for whatever reason - just keeps me wanting more. It's nice to see that the CD is still available and that others might still stumble across Kowanko."
A Personal favorite

"What a great album this is. Chris Kowanko's voice reminds me of..oh, if Jules Shear joined the Violent Femmes...something like that. Great songwriting here - the songs sound like a really really good Lou Reed album sung by the description above. Worth buying....I just noticed that Chris has resurfaced - a look at says that a new CD called "Spell" has been released."
Painting with words from a masculine perspective

"This album did not have to grow on me. It became a favorite of mine even as I listened to it the very first time. Kowanko's thoughtful insights and stories here are poetic and cleverly set to unique, solid melodies. Each song is a complicated layering of intelligent lyrics and music. Kowanko has done this layering correctly which makes these songs progress in a seemingly simple manner. Sophisticated ballads and pop to rock sounds give this album a broad range of appeal. Fans of Joni Mitchell, Annie Lennox, Tom Petty will like this album."
