Rock it! - is by far Mimes On Rollercoasters™ most unusual album release to-date. The cover art features a 1960’s style “spacesuited” mime, standing on planet Mars next to a metallic rocking chair, staring hopefully out into space. The ominous backdrop displays the magnificent power of our own Sun with a tiny spec of the Earth off in the distance behind. What does it all mean? Well that’s for you to decide!
Drawing our influence from the great Prog Rock masters of the 1970’s, Mimes On Rollercoasters™ music delivers something for everyone. Tagged as Classic Style Prog Rock, Rock it! boasts catchy melodies, intriguing lyrics, and rich vocal harmonies. You will be hard pressed to find a similar comparable album. Mimes On Rollercoasters™ music truly is unique. And for that, we make no apologies!
As with all Mimes On Rollercoasters™ albums, Rock it! is best enjoyed from start to finish, without interruption. Preferably, one would wear a good grade of studio headphones, plugged into a high quality amplifier attached to any brand-name CD player, with the Rock it! CD spinning in the tray. And, to avoid distractions, turn out the lights! Okay, I know that’s likely a bit unrealistic, but a good set of earbuds plugged into your MP3 player should suffice. But definitely turn out the lights!
Although not specifically billed as a concept album, one may argue that many elements of Rock it! would seem to suggest such intent. Perhaps that’s due to our past concept album history. Rock it! - centered around the plight of the middle-class, middle-aged American, holds the futuristic hope that one day humans will venture beyond the “home turf” and explore new worlds. But at the same time Rock it! remains well grounded in the reality of life on planet Earth.
