Album Notes
Though hardly an expert in the study of Quantum mechanics, Grey Melcher proves that he does tend to wet his hands in the slippery liquids of experimentation.

"The Clock" is truly a timeless piece of work with hardly a single dull moment in sight!....or sound. Melcher takes the listener on an unexpected journey far beyond the realms of the defined.

Love, pain, neurosis, joy, fear, uncertainty, psychosis and the freedom of relief are all poured into their rightful holes to construct the total experience which is that of "The Clock".

Ignore at your own peril...
Surprising, unique and brilliant are words that often get thrown around haphazardly by music critics; in Grey's case it's hard to talk about
his work without resorting to these adjectives. I've followed his art from different vantage points over the past five or six years and even so was consistently amazed at the intricacies of "The Clock". Very layered and textural, playful and clever but always thoughtful and often sublime. Funky, intelligent, catchy and at times odd and disturbing music that defies easy pigeon-holing or classification. Dada, chamber music, new wave, progressive and art-rock are all alluded to, but ultimately Mr. Melcher creates utterly unique moments and songs. Only the patient listener will be rewarded, but he or she will be treated to an experience unlike any other. Ignore at your own peril.


There are times in the album when I reminice about being 15 in another mindspace listening to Jane's addiction,fading away w/ the artist.For the risk of sounding intelligent I will just say that he is an artist unlike so many others,where content and delivery enables the listener to reflect on their own lives.The most talented are usually the most underappreciated and it is not just some music but a life w/ instruments.Be well G.

I found my soft place.
Grey's sounds touch a place in me that is usually reserved for emotional childhood experiences.
The lyrics are passionate, powerful, and tend to conjure up images that only occur in the pocket between sleep and awakening.
This album is rich and dynamic. It feels impossible to get tired of, and is truly one of my favorite albums ever.
Listen with an open mind and heart.

Grey Melcher's "The Clock" will spin you around in circular squares, inside-out and upside-down. A genius mindblend of music and verse. Tender, torcherous and tough combinations that would leave Fellini smiling. Stretched from nursery jingles to carnival trumpets to rockbeat this eclectic eccentricity left me jolted, full and satisfied. Thank you for this art, Grey Melcher! Bravo! We want more!

Rich Cohen

The Clock is a refreshing batch of creative and adventurous tunes. Grey Melcher is a composer/singer/multi-instumentalist to really take note of. This is pop music with a tasty bunch of twists and turns that takes the listener on a journey. its refreshing to hear an artist like this who follows no trends yet mixes so many influences into their own voice. Echoes of Bowie, Todd Rundgren and Zappa with cool odd time signatures, playful melodies and shifting harmonies. great lyrics, vocals, playing programming with a Stevie Wonder/Prince "do it all yourself" studio ethic. great graphics and photos too with "ecological care" in manufacturing. This is music straight from the heart. Tic/Toc...It's time to listen to "The Clock"!


Idiosyncratic Genius!!!
There are two things that keep jumping out at me regarding Grey's music: First, even after listening to this cd day after day for months now, I have never gotten bored or tired of it. It continues to be as fresh and exciting as the first time I heard it. And second, I am constantly astounded by how he takes me far, far away with his excellent story telling and musicianship, utilizing clever choices of instruments, voices and sounds, and yet, at the end, only a few minutes have passed. His ability to write a very simple, poignant song like "Alone" and then an expansive masterpiece like "Natural World", which always leaves me feeling that I have been part of an event, demonstrates what an incredibly gifted artist he is. "The Clock" is amazing!

The Clock
Listening to this album feels like when I first started listening to Zappa; you know the artist is a genius and you can't wait to hear every song they do. This record is truly how musicians should be making albums these days but for some reason aren't. Find a place to sit down alone and listen to this whole thing otherwise you will miss all the little details and snippets of brilliance.


Most exciting and innovative record of 2008!

As a musician, the music keeps you surprised and eager to hear more.

There is a pop sensiblity that turns these songs into catchy sing along tunes that will stay in your head, and you will catch yourself singing them as you go about your life!



The time I've spent with the Ticking Clock...
I must admit that today alone on my Endless Drive to work I listened to The Clock as I have the last 5 Endless Drives to work.

Melodic, Rhythmic, Complicated, thought provoking, emotional.

The layers with which Grey stimulates the eardrums are somewhat mystifying and similar to the feeling my eyes get when watching Disney's Fantasia.

It feels almost as thought you are watching this music as it unfolds, the imagery is unparalleled to anything available to the public in Music.

Truly enjoyable. Even if you are picky about the music in which you partake, it is something that you might consider experience just for the mere sake of experienceing.
