ILLINOIS ENTERTAINER 'Around Hear' REVIEW of RICK GOLDSCHMIDT SINGS!
Cleverly designed to look like an old 7-inch, Rick Goldschmidt’s debut, Rick Goldschmidt Sings (Miser Bros.), is a slick, modern rock album similar to Gin Blossoms’ (a band he lists in the liner notes) debut. If anything, Goldschmidt displays greater guitar acumen, paying tribute to ’70s classic rock with melodic leads (”The Last Time (Tennis Song)”) and showing a knack for pop sweetness (”Brand New Love”). “Baby Song” finds him strumming a winsome, lilting folk tune with equal verve.
