Robert Morey''s second CD release, and first "solo" outing, includes contributions by his brother (and Brother''s Keeper alum) David Morey and a number of other luminaries from Iowa City''s considerable music scene. Eight original tunes keep company with a reverent cover of Bob Dylan''s "Tomorrow is a Long Time" and a folksy take on Lou Reed''s "I''m Waiting for the Man," which features a hip button-accordion solo by Red House recording artist Dave Moore.
"Morey has a clean, clear voice reminiscent of James Taylor, and some of the songs [on ''This Time''] have a similar, Taylor-esque feel. But elsewhere, on more uptempo tracks, Morey puts more grit into his delivery, lending the tunes a more bluesy feel. The result is a solid, consistent batch of tunes."
--Iowa City Gazette
"A Midwestern story-book. ''This Time'' is a collection of earthy songs with scenic undertones and sharp descriptions of daily life."
--Cityview [Des Moines]
"A great sounding disc with fine contributions by all hands. . . . The singer injects the tunes with emotional commitment and palpable sensitivity."
