Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

RICH T. ANDERSON

NaCl

2012-01-29

Rich T. Anderson is a local musician and NaCl is his first solo release. With some of the songs recorded as long ago as 2002, NaCl has been a long time coming. In fact the album as a whole seems unfocused and perhaps that’s due to the length of time it took to produce it. The first three tracks were pretty straight forward rock (albeit with some mildly interesting percussion on the second song). The rest of NaCl circumnavigates a prog-rock core, but between Mr. Anderson’s tenor vocals and the lyrics, there is also a Weird Al quality to it. Some of the lyrics are thoughtful/almost clever (“Defining Love”, “If I Kiss You”) while others are...well...just listen to “Pirate Booty”. In any case, I’ll give Rich T. Anderson credit for making something that’s occasionally quirky, a plus in my book. Rebecca Ruth
