Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Apparently, Koufax have been around for years but the only constant is lead singer and songwriter, Robert Suchan. Suchan has a perfect rock voice.

They’ve been criticized in the past for political statements. But I honestly don’t see anything wrong with writing and singing about what you believe in.

Any Moment Now is cool. It’s got a good driving beat and a nice tempo and his voice is cool. (I learned after writing this that that song is the single)

Facsimile is a lesson in ‘saying a word over and over again makes it sound ridiculous and wrong’ but it’s a fun song.

California Taught us Well is cool. I really like his voice on this one.

This is a consistent, solid release. I’d say this incarnation is one to stick with!
