Just the title of Chris Rice's 2000 Rocketown Records release — Smell the Color 9 — is enough to draw curiosity on the part of listeners.

Rice's reflective lyrics, which often ask more questions than they provide answers, are reminiscent of work by Rich Mullins or Nichole Nordeman. Songs include the musically circus-themed "Questions for Heaven" and the '70s-flavored "Magic Wand."
