Brian Ray….”This Way Up”…A Cd Review… By Michelle Williams
“Happy Ending,” an edgy Rock tune brimming with innuendo and passion, is about the emptiness of casual Internet dating and how he dreams of true love and a fairytale ending. A funky beat-box gives the song a catchy hip-hop flare. “Hello Lonely” is a beautifully touching love song with a mesmerizingly heartfelt vocal. The lyrics are captivating and soulful. It’s a power ballad with exquisite guitar solos and breathtaking imagery.
He rocks out on the title track with guitars blazing and a driving beat. The positive and upbeat message of breaking free and
being yourself is joyfully expressed.
“Camouflage” is pure Rock genius with an enthralling edginess. The lyrics are about being real and genuine without having to hide our true selves. The vocal is mesmerizing and unforgettable. The drums and special effects make it even more remarkable.
The catchy “Happy Song” is an optimistically angry song with a sardonic interpretation of the state of the world today. It’s an excellent Rock & Roll experience with dynamic vocals and beautiful harmony, punctuated with awesome guitar solos. “
This Way Up” is a delightful Rock & Roll treasure and a musical delight. It’s a joy to hear so much pure rock in one album. It’s a new rock classic. If you love Guitar Rock, You will love Brian Ray.
