RICK SPRINGFIELD Delivers Songwriting Masterclass with 'Rocket Science'

 
“On an island made of sand
In a sea of our frustrations
We rebuild the same wasteland
And its dark effect
Touch our lips to bloodstained hands
And we pray for our salvation
As we dream of promised lands
Where we connect…”
 
~ We Connect
 
Extraordinary…
 
He’s done it again folks, he’s done it again!
 
Another masterpiece is set for delivery February 19. Take a bow RICK SPRINGFIELD.
 
Rock Science is another crazy ride for long time fans of Rick’s. This is filled with some of the catchiest tunes of his career and has the energy of a 19 year old just breaking into the business.
 
Once again Rick delves deep to deliver some brilliant lyrics, but all in all, this is a pretty happy record. And there are some quite extraordinary songs featured here.
In fact, there’s one tune that just might be the most infectiously happy song ever recorded in the history of the world.
 
This is Rick as you’ve never heard before! This is going to throw some fans completely off balance. First listen I was shocked. Second I was uncertain. Third I was hooked. And from there is just gets better and better as these songs cling to your brain like a new born koala grips its mother’s back. I’m 2 weeks in and can’t stop playing this, just as was the case with Venus In Overdrive and Songs For…
 
The production and mix is simply perfect, as is the flow of the album and the contagious uptempo ride fans are about to go on.
 
So just what has Rick done this time?
 
Rick has taken the sonic template of Songs For The End Of The World, the same modern melodic rock songwriting style and production quality, the same band and added violins, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, steel guitar and harmonica to create something extraordinary.
 
Yes, he’s gone Nashville, but this is still 100% Rick Springfield. It’s Songs For The End Of The World meets Keith Urban. But don’t let that paint the full picture of this album. Far from it.
 
At the end of the day though, it’s the songs. This is genius stuff folks. I hope the change in direction is not any hindrance to discovering just how good these songs are, the amazing vocals and just how damn good this record sounds.
