Voila, Eureka, and Hallelujah!, the debut album,'Dragonfly' from new artist Rebecca Bogart is finally here!! A masterpiece mix of musical, vocal, and lyrical inspiration, it is a mega-vitamin of joy whose appearance marks the beginning of an important new period in the history of rock music, the 'I'm gonna be happy even if the world blows up!' period, which we all know we are living in right now. And even if it DOES blow up, having this CD will keep you immune from all types of hell, careless insults from weirdos, road rage nutcases, and nuclear reactive fallout!!! It is filled with timeless anthems that sparkle like jewels in the sun and will comfort weary ears for generations to come. The vibe is Beatle-esque, the lyrics one of a kind comic-poetic, a veritable Lennon/Dylan/Mitchell casserole. Her vocal style has been compared to Sheryl Crow, Rickie-Lee Jones, Joni Mitchell as well. The beat and rhythm guitar on these songs are extremely contagious, as on 'Banana Nirvana','Gimmee','Elation','Ray of Sunshine', and 'Tiger Mountain Doesn't Have Any Fleas.' For those in a more quiet mood there is the gorgeous title track 'Dragonfly', the intimate gentle 'Teahouse', the joyouous 'Dolphin Song', and the swirling fender rhodes induced 'Let it In'. Bogart's voice chirps delightedly along to the beat, revealing both sides of her soul in every bite, as she strums her guitar with passionate relentlessness. For all those dear ones who just broke up with someone there is the CLASSIC 'Salami Song', Bogart's endearing reply to Alanis Morrisette's 'You Oughta Know', only more sweet and sarcastic. You can leave this one on your ex's answering machine and feel purged sufficiently, (especially if the machine is right next to their bed at 2 A.M.!) or just listen to it yourself for a good joke that never stops laughing. No more broken hearts after hearing this one, that's for sure! Her Jethro Tull-like flute accompaniments burst in giving shivers of delight in unexpected moments. Her voice emotes in profuse longings. In short this is an album that will be stuck in your head, if not your CD player, forever, from an artist whose time has come and who hasn't even begun to pull out all her stops yet. Look Out!
