"Dear God" review by Dorsal Phinn :::A vocal ballad that grips you from the very beginning and keeps you. A child's prayer put to music in a world spinning out of control, chaotic and on the brink. Moscato 's vocal makes my skin crawl in a good way, her plea to both fellow man and divinity brings a tear to "me eye" and presents you with a pure, beautiful, child's portrait of hope in God for both brothers and world. I look forward to hearing more from this one. Thank you Moscato, you are a flower in war torn world. Dorsal Phinn :::
Title alone makes you wanna hear itGood production overall! Haunting vocals, mellow backing. I must admit that when I listen to music, the lyrics slip by me because I'm listening to everything else. Like: is the vocals double tracked, was this done in a studio, is that guitar a Strat? etc. This is a pretty laid back song with very emotional vocals. the drums are pretty solid and the guitar flurries over the chorus are nice. It kinda wants to make you close your eyes and listen and let you mind wander. Kudos to these Aussies, I'm going to check out the rest of their stuff.
Cry from the heart of darknessA beautiful slow rock number. Refreshing to hear a genuine prayer expressed in great music. The song builds from just piano and vocal to full band with rolling drums and wailing guitar. Great lines: "Oh dear God / do you see them falling / heartache and anger / rivers deep with grief..."
Moscato Writes Great SongsMoscato is committed to writing great songs. The piano is beautifully played and the vocal emotive and expressive on all the right words. A strong chorus delivers a beautiful message. The lyrics are so personal and I feel the connection to the singer. The guitars are elegant. I like the power of the drums later in the song.
