Phenomenation CD reviews

CD REVIEWS

"I don't make this proclamation often, and you may not hear me say it again this year, so take notice: 'Stop what you are doing, right now, and buy this CD!. . . '
"With Phenomenation, Richard Zeier has created a masterpiece."
Mike Parker - managing editor of BuddyHollwood.com

"UNBELIEVEABLE...I can't stop listening to it. Each track is smooth...the vocals and guitar is intoxicating. It's perfect for a chill down mix or smooth jazz addition. This album should do very well."
Bryant S. Littlejohn - NewImage Entertainment

"Zeier's debut CD, Phenomenation, sounds like a movie soundtrack - in the best possible way. From the opening track, you are drawn in to a compelling instrumental story that is near impossible to stop listening to. The songs feature lush orchestrations and are at once accessible, yet thoughtful."
Instrumental Jams.com July 2007

"Richard Zeier, in his first solo album Phenomenation, does a fantastic job of creating intelligent guitar music. He uses a wide variety of influences (including classical and electronic) to fuel his guitars. Most of the songs are 3 or 4 minutes long, and every piece has its own unique flavor. This would make great soundtrack music."
By Tim Jones - Music Street Journal

"Phenomenation is an instrumental classical-cum-rock album... conceived, says Richard, thanks to "proper alignment of the planets", this 13-track work represents his magnum opus. Grandiose wording, perhaps, especially considering that this is his first commercial release, but while such confidence and self-aggrandisement would probably be met with utter contempt coming from any other artist, in this case it fits the music rather well.
Zeier studied film scoring at UCLA, and it shows in his music. In fact, most of the material on here sounds like a pretty convincing pitch for an ���������������¼ber-budget Hollywood film soundtrack of the 'epic' variety."
by Chris Korff - Sound on Sound Magazine (July 07)

"...Phenomenation is an excellent musical journey through time and space and a deep showcase of Zeier's musical ability. This is the best of cinematic rock: whether it's on your MP3 player or in your favorite films I have no doubt you'll be hearing a lot of Phenomenation and Richard Zeier".
by Ryan Quinn - MuzikReviews.com

..."And those who enjoy guitar based explorations of colour and time will find a great deal to admire here as the prodigiously talented musician heads off into a richly textured world of symphonic rock. A world Herr Uli Jon Roth would be proud to call home. The key piece for me was "The Journey", one that exemplifies the complicated yet natural flow of the music".
Reviewer: Stuart A Hamilton - spacerock.co.uk

"His music is well written with tasteful orchestration. He is a strong composer with productions that are diverse and engaging. If I was a director looking for someone to score my next film, he would definitely get a call. Great stuff."
Roy Elkins - founder of Broadjam.com

"This sounds like a lifetime of passion, faith and love poured into a little shiny disc. Very impressive. . . Richard has a terrific CD here, one I recommend heartily."
Don Cicchetti - DC Guitar Journal

"...amazing musical imagination...a splendid introduction to the guitar magic of Richard Zeier.
Robert Silverstein - 20th Century Guitar Magazine, July 2006

"Awesome CD; herein lie exceptional scores for multiple types of movies and television. Also perfect for caviar parties."
Carolyn Cumming - Television Producer
