October 28th...part two
So - I write a lot about Rain Station's DARK RIDE...I do...
It is probably one of the things I've done in life I'm most proud of (after kids and some other non-musical life experiences). Rain Station (for me) was a beautiful collaboration between a friend and I...something that can't be dismissed and something that will always stand he test of time.
Some folks dig it...and I dig that they dig it.
Enter Heather Drain (here) - a fan, a friend and a brilliant writer. She's recently written "Music to Get Your Spook On!: The Album Edition" for Diabolique Magazine (here).
Making the grade on any list of Halloween music is a dream...here's what Heather has to say:
With the tone ranging from cute to somber to fanged-monster-mask-scary, “Dark Ride” is a work that should be played as much as “Monster Mash” in a world more just. It’s a perfect album for pre, during and post Halloween-themed capers. Whether it is the thrill of being a child in a cheap mask, going to strange houses at night in search for candy or being the grown up monster kid watching scary movies late at night with friends, “Dark Ride” is an album that lives up to its title. It is actually better than any carnival ride and you can be assured that the odds of getting sexually harassed by a carny named “Crutches” while visiting this particular dark ride are incredibly low."
