THE MUSIC OF FRANKI BAAZ AND GRAYSON WRAY
ALL RIGHT RESERVED IMPRESSIVE MUSIC.COM 2018
'Will I play this album? Yes! The first song sort of reminds me of late 70's Devo with it's basic but up front pogostick keyboard riffs, but especially "I Am Here Now" builds into an interesting climatic crescendo. Franki's vocals absolutely are first rate throughout the entire disc and the occational stinging guitar that surfaces from time to time are right on the perfect moment. Other faves; 'Gone to Holland'. 'Luxury'. A great record; sure glad the vocals and synth works when it could so easily have sounded like 1980 new wave, but sounds very modern here....... Mark K 'Tarkus' O'Neil, KEOl-FM Oregon
Doomsday visions from a talented duo. Grayson Wray backs Franki's artfully tuneless vocals with synth stabs, guitar licks and drum machine rhythms that tick like time bombs. Wray constructs his accompaniments carefully, even throwing in an occasional jazz chord where other electro-rockers may stick to open fifths."............. B.D.
'Earth Dreams' Review, KEOl-FM Oregon
GREAT CITY BY GREAT CITY 1985
EARTH DREAMS BY GREAT CITY 1989
Keyboard Magazine Review 1988
How does sound of Great City's only album like? Music is neither so exciting nor rick by the ideas and new constructions. It is correctly played alternative-pop based on synthesixers and woman vocal. Rhythm and dancing sound is quite stressed, sound has sometimes oriented to jazz models. Sometimes we are in position to presentement some trace of a expressionistic experimental electronic, but mostly everything is within the framework of ordinary. Neverthless i can't say I do not like this record, on the contrary, something from this album, some elementary sincerity and naturalness. Sofistiction of the music expression, warm guttural vocals of Franki Baaz; or some other conbination of characteristics, simply which remind us to primeval beauty, and it have good done his function: How many vynil printing fill all that functions?
