Album Review

Zach Ziskin plays an inoffensive brand of modern guitar pop, sort of like a 2000s Richard Marx, only without the hit singles. He has created a very clean and crisp-sounding record with strong pop sensibilities. Real As the Memory is as organic as mainstream guitar pop gets in 2002, with lots of acoustic guitar underpinning and nary a drum loop in sight. The disc is carried by the passionate vocals of Ziskin. Some listeners will be drawn in by his display of very heartfelt emotion, and some will find it to be a little too much. The most successful tracks are the ballads, like the waltzing "Waking Hour" and the quiet "The Jewel," which find Ziskin toning down the emotional intensity of his vocals a touch. The faster and louder tracks sound professional and have plenty of energy, but not much in the way of hooks. Ziskin's heart is certainly in the right place here and the music sounds great on the surface, but Real As the Memory is a mostly forgettable album.

Customer Reviews

Magical Melodic Music

DO NOT pay attention to the iTunes review. This is a beautiful disc, full of wonderful songs with great, catchy melodies and mind-numbing hooks. I have no idea what the "official" iTunes reviewer was listening to, but certainly not the same CD I've played a few thousand times since discovering it in a Local Artist section of a Florida store. I only wish Zach would put out a 2nd disc.

Great up incoming artist!

I first heard of Zach on Roswell, they played one of his songs in the show it caught my attention. So i did a web search and found out who it was that was singing. Falling to pieces is a amazing song.So im now sure that i would like to album.
