Review: "Along The River" By Alternative Pop-Rock Musician Doug McCurry

Alternative Pop-Rock musician Doug McCurry's New CD "Romance Like It Was" is 12 tracks of pure delight. Though the album is his first since the 2007 release of "Seven Songs About Leaving" McCurry has most definitely not lost his touch. "Along The River," which is the 4th track on the album, is an inspirational and spiritual song performed in the style of rock and roll. McCurry's voice grabs a hold of you and never lets go as he takes you along for a walk along the river. The track utilizes a very interesting violin and guitar blend, which are excellent for this well arranged track. The use of a choir adds depth and dimension to this jam, moving you spiritually while kept in balance with the vocal style and the excellent musicianship and band. "Along The River" isn't a gospel song, but the message is a spiritual one, and the track is an effort that shows a level of perfection reached by all involved. The unique sound of the band makes the single even that much better, and listeners will mark May 22nd (the date of the CD's release) on their calendars for sure. This is a 'must have' for listeners who want beautiful music with a beautiful message and an authentic and well produced sound.
