th-cd-fwa-217We’ve championed Chance on this network since Insomnia Radio Episode #5. It’s always difficult to choose a single song to highlight from his catalog, and while Life & Life Only is an exemplary example of Chance’s trademark pop-rock style, I wanted to promote this user review of his 1st full length LP, from longtime listener and Chance superfan, Eddyspeeder:

Chance’s efforts to take recording, mixing and engineering into his own hands paid off; his first solo LP makes his previous solo releases turn pale by comparison. “Happening” perfectly introduces “Ambulance Chaser”, a daring song to put in second. “Ripped, Torn, Broken” works up to a sonorous culmination, a structure in many of Chance’s songs. “When the Cracked…” lacks the energy to make a worthy contribution to the general flow. Ultimately, the way Chance blends completely different musical and vocal tracks combined with emphases on subtle falsettos, creates a trademark sound consistent across many styles that cannot be put to words otherwise. With a total run time of little over 50 minutes, “Famous Words & Alibis” is a very balanced experience that flies past almost unnoticeable, leaving the listener in an upbeat state and all set to replay the CD once more.
