  •  The Independent Musicians CD Reviews

    Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
    I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.

    I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

    We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

    “An Anthology of Sorts” is his latest release and the result though far from a self-indulgent ego trip, rather a moving and elegiac artistic statement from start to finish. This is not your overly predictable Ramon Noodle “Sing-Songy” Nickelback-esque Rock band. Instead Dr. Wippit who hails from Chicago could even be classed as a 3 genera band: Alternative Rock, Ambient Pop, and Psychedelic Punk.

    Dr. Wippit has way too much precision and clarity to live in the shadows of overly-predictable Corporate Rock. Indeed this is clearly evident in songs like “Pocket Full of Hope”, “Cry Like a Child” and “If You Could Read my Mind” which methodically ups the ante to a very respectable level of catchy musical craftsmanship and addictive melody that transcends pigeonholing. The music is not so commercially viable mainly because of the fuzzy sound quality but still delivers a jagged edge sound that holds the attentions span of the listener adequately.

    In a nutshell, this is Sublime meets Lucky Boy Confusion. “An Anthology of Sorts” appeals to many listeners with a wide variety of musical styles – but it packs a powerful punch with a powerful voice for all the rockers out there who want something more than Nickelback, Daughtry or Lifeshouse.

    Favorite track: Cry Like a Child
    Criticism: Poor Sound Quality overall. The beats sound like they belong on a 1980 Atari Video Game.

    I honestly got a headache listening to this CD on my really nice speakers. CD cover art and some of the other aspects of the package lack a slick professional look. I’m not impressed with these items.

    Songs available on i-Tunes:
    Eaten By Machines /  If You Could Read My Mind /  Figure 7 /  Never Again /  Crumbling Towers /  Pocket of Hope /  Opener /  Be Here Now /  Mama Baby /  Cry Like a Child /  Intro /  Third /  Three Four /  Hidden Track / 

    I would imagine in time we will hear more from this artist in the near future as his sound evolves. Dr. Wippit has still carved a marketable niche for himself on a few of these tracks thus setting himself up for marketable success down the road in the Windy City. But for now I can honestly say this is one artist that clearly gives you a musical snapshot that is highly original, unique and dare I say dangerously chaotic in scope.
