Things Are Different Now
Recent Online Review: 'A Hidden Treasure' Recently going through a plie of CD's that I wanted to review, but haven't gotten around to. I found a CD 'Things are Different Now' by Phil Risen. (Produced by Grammy Award winning Producer Larry Mitchell) I remember the first time I listened to track 10, 'Things are different now', How it spoke to me on a spiritual level of where my life was at the time. His lyrics captured the essence of time and life at a point where people reach a plateau or crossroads. This CD takes you on a personal journey of people, places and life experience. It should be listened to and savored like a glass of wine. Indulging oneself in the subtle nuances of the lyrics, melodies, arrangements and production. This is a road trip ... not the kind you listen to with the top down. More like the kind you listen to after you have reached your destination and want to reflect on the details of your journey. ©RM Gotham-Sentinel Review 2009.
