Best unknown rock 'n' roll songwriter alive
Michael Toland | Austin, TX USA | 10/28/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paul K is America's best unknown living rock 'n' roller. He's a great, great songwriter and a fabulous guitarist to boot. On this album, he downplays the Jim Thompson/James Ellroy-influences a tad and writes about another kind of all-Americanism - flying saucers, specifically the Roswell incident and how it affects a farming couple. That's a pretty general description of the album's story - oh yes, did I mention this is a concept album? - but the narrative flow is less important than the emotional moments each song portrays. Lyrics and music meld in as close to perfect harmony as any rock album has ever come. "Wilderness of Mirrors," the gorgeous "Overture" and a spectacular cover of the Spinners' "Living a Little, Laughing a Little" are the highlights of an insanely great record. What's even scarier is that this is Paul's third 5-star album in a row (following Love is a Gas and Achilles Heel). Get it and get in on America's greatest unknown songwriter."
An excellent emotion drenched story told through a weird ver

"the album is one of paul k's better ones, at least in recent history. don't be fooled by the the cover which calls it a soundtrack. it does tell a story, but it is much more like a standard format rock album than a soundtrack, though the music does carry a strong mood with it. as far as the musical style, it is like folk rock from the future. a lot of reverb and echo, but not overdone. excellent lyrics, both thought provoking and tear jerking."
