You absolutely have to love when an artist like Edward Rogers delivers a new album because he gives you a complete package thoughtful, image-laden lyrics, almost always thematically unified, melody and always a full complement of songs. And on Glass Marbles, his sixth solo album, no less than eighteen songs right there, more than your money’s worth. So this splendid gathering of material opens with the sprightly, upbeat “The World Of Mystery”, which is a perfect way to start the program it shouldn’t go unnoticed that Mr. Rogers takes on the younger Dylan in a very clever and enjoyable way; “Denmark Street Forgotten” has a very “vintage” sound, production-wise, which adds to the overall feel to the song (dark, slighly brooding) and has an on-the-one guitar solo and “Jumbo Sale”‘s wash of reverb and slightly-My Bloody Valentine texture helps the vocals shine brighter as the band builds up (but never explodes) and listen for that very neo-psychedelic middle colorful and vivid.
