Pop Circles
 
Pop Circles Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $13.00
Artist: Richard X. Heyman
 
 
Quantity:
 

“Pop Circles” is the 13th solo record from Richard, containing 18 new tracks full of melody, harmony, jangly guitars, ferocious keyboards and brilliant songwriting, in the grand tradition of the 60's greatest rockers.  “A pop perfectionist delivers another masterpiece...his ability to craft hooks, choruses and ringing refrains has been an unshakable element in his efforts since the beginning.” – RockNRollGlobe.com  “Worthy of being lifted in triumph by a bespectacled cult of pop classicists and rock music obsessives, ’Pop Circles’ is the bright, technicolor song factory of idealistic power-pop champion, and one man pop machine Richard X. Heyman.  Echoes of The Zombies, The Left Banke and other 60’s pop mystics whisper in the ears, as smooth blends of vocal harmonies tumble and slide around this sophisticated musical playground.   Yet despite all of its immaculately crafted refinement, the record also doesn’t mind getting its hands dirty.  Befitting his rugged, garage-rock history with The Doughboys, ‘Action Screams Louder Than Words,’ with its whirling organ frenzy, is tough and uncompromising, while the racing pace, infectious energy and rolling piano runs of ‘Marlena’ take a heartfelt joy ride.  As a bonus, ‘Richie’s 3-Chord Garage’ – an unbeatable five-card suit of reimagined songs he wrote for The Doughboys – is tacked onto ‘Pop Circles’, offering the strutting riffs of ‘Land,’ the explosive and vibrant R.E.M-like jangle of ‘Until Now’ and the dark vibe and slow-building tension of ‘Route 22.’  Though not part of the bonus, the heaviness and cycling six-string designs of the record’s ‘Hope’ would also fit right in with that rough-and-tumble cast of characters.  As wise as an elder statesman here, Heyman also sounds youthful and innocent, even euphoric, on this brilliantly conceived, almost flawless effort, beguiled by memories of romances and inspired by noble socio-political causes of the past and present.” – ElmoreMagazine.com  “Heyman hits it right out of the ballpark and straight into the stratosphere on his latest album. This is pop/rock music done with consummate skill and unfettered passion; it's music that soars and sparkles as well as radiates an infectiously happy and upbeat vibe without ever getting too cloying or corny about it; it's music that makes the listener smile and wanna get up and dance around the room. In other words, it's simply wonderful and invigorating stuff.” – JerseyBeat.com  GREAT!!
