From Chicago comes the latest release titled "Life Ain't That Long" from singer/songwriter Rich Krueger. Krueger has been performing with his band, The Dysfunctionells for the better part of three decades and is ready to breakout on his own with two new solo albums. This release, being the first of the two new albums contains 10 solid songs of well-structured songwriting, beginning with the upbeat, Americana vibe of "A Stoopid Broken Heart." The album continues with "The Gospel According To Carl," which sounds like it came straight from the seventies folk/rock movement and should turn you into an instant fan of Rich's songwriting. His music takes on an edgier sound with his tribute to 1977 when Krueger was only 17 years old and all the highlights he experienced that year in "77/17." When he slows down for the ballad "Can't See Me In This Light," you can appreciate the honest delivery of his words and the emotions he pours into his performances. He wraps up his new release with the seven-minute, soul grooved plea of "The Wednesday Boys" and the inspired, gospel sway of "What We Are." There are also two bonus songs added to this album, including his Christmas-themed "And It's That Time Again," which Rich wrote back in 1985.
