Ricochet -- Having only one Country #1 in 1995, Ricochet hasn't been
heard on regular Country stations, but as I was listening to Chicago's Country
station US99, the DJ announced that the
band had broken up. However, when I searched
for their website, it was
mentioned that they are still around, and their songs were featured on Christian
Country radio. "Daddy's Money" from their self-titled album reached #1,
and listening to the remaining songs, this album is remarkably good.
"What Do I Know" is a great country ballad, where "I Can't
Dance" is a good upbeat country number, as the phrase I Can't Dance,
but I'm willin' to learn. comes quite natural to those in this situation,
especially in the area of Country Line Dancing, where you're watching people
doing this kind of dance easily, yet you're all left feet, but willing to learn!
"Love Is Stronger Than Pride" has a ballad style also, and is another
very enjoyable song.
"Ease My Troubled Mind" is a medium-tempo'd country styled song,
easily defining the 1990s and present Country. "A Little Bit Of Love
(Is A Dangerous Thing)" is another pleasant song as well. "From
Good To Bad To Worse To Gone" is a great honky-tonker, where another
great ballad is heard on "The Truth Is I Lied." "I Wasn't Ready
For You" has a bluesy country sound, "Rowdy" is another typical
upbeat Country sounding tune.
Definitely Country -- Ricochet has a good blend of today's Country
music. And it's easy to see how "Daddy's Money" was a huge hit, reaching
#1. It's odd not to see them reach #1 afterwards, but it's interesting to
read up on their website, and see if they're still recording and performing.
Ricochet may not be a household Country name, but their self-titled album is
certainly worth listening to.
