Chris Rice--Smell the Color 9 (2000)
Album-Smell the Color 9
Release Date-Oct 31, 2000
Review-Just the title of Chris Rice's 2000 Rocketown Records release — Smell the Color 9 — is enough to draw curiosity on the part of listeners. After all, what exactly is the singer/songwriter alluding to with such a title? In essence, he is addressing the intangibleness of God. The project combines CCM with touches of folk stylings. Rice's reflective lyrics, which often ask more questions than they provide answers, are reminiscent of work by Rich Mullins or Nichole Nordeman. Songs include the musically circus-themed "Questions for Heaven" and the '70s-flavored "Magic Wand."
