REVIEWS - (What They Say)
The overall tone of the disc if very warm and inviting. The songs build and draw you in; the hooks captivate; the vocal harmonies reflect the thoughtful nature of the lyrics - Good Times - Press & Sun-Bulletin
"On this CD, the singer/author/songwriter/poet reminds me of Canada''s great musical and poetic genius BRUCE COCKBURN... The album was better than I imagined. It became more impressive the more I listened to it... Intelligent,
thoughtful lyrics with solid music by Denzien make ''EXIT 21'' an album worth checking out."
- Armando Canales - The Critical Review
"Never heard of Rick Denzien? Shame on you. You soon will." "Listen carefully to Denzien''s smart, edgy lyrics, filtered through catchy, driving guitar riffs and moody anti-ballads and you''ll hear genuine talent."
- Frank D. Quatrone - Ticket Editor - Montgomery Newspapers
"This guy has a strange handle on pop/rock. The songs are in the deep-end lyrically, but the musical hooks grab you and have you bopping before you know what''s going on. This takes skill, and Rick Denzien has plenty of it. The songs have a political edge, and Denzien wears his feelings on his sleeve."
- Mish Mash
"Rick Denzien''s music has an eclectic alternative rock style that reminds me of a mix between Richard Marx and Pearl Jam. Sounds strange, I know, but if Richard Marx had Stone Gossard on guitar and didn''t sing so mellow all the time, you would have something quite like Rick Denzien. Make any sense? If not, go to https://www.tradebit.com and listen for yourself. The really cool thing about Denzien''s music
is that while I was listening and liking it, I caught my mom tappin'' her foot, too."
- Brandy Smouse - The Post Journal
Exit 21, utilizing reknown musicians and exceptional lyric content, is thirteen tracks that transport the listener through today''s social issues into the future of true rock ''n'' roll.
His hit song "Desperation" fuses sporadic assaults on civilization with a dewy love narrative. - sophia maines - Art Voice
''Rick Denzien is a multi-talented, faceted ndividual. Sort of David Byrne meets Bo Jackson'' - The Original Page - Out on the Town
