Quote: "In this complicated world of ours, it’s good to know that smart and passionate people like Robert Nix are diligently using music to understand this complex home planet of ours."

By Dan MacIntosh

This CD's title reminds us that it’s a complicated world after all, and its creator, Robert Nix, doesn’t try to convince us otherwise. Nix’s singing voice sometimes sounds eerily like Jim Morrison of The Doors, who was himself an especially complicated individual. The world may be a complicated place, but Nix applies basic, good musical values to his songs here.

In addition to this CD’s title track, “A Black Spot On Humanity” also reveals how Nix consistently applies a big picture viewpoint to his lyrics. His songs alternate between being guitar-based and keyboard-based, with “A Black Spot On Humanity” exemplifying one of his keyboard-oriented songs. This latter track also utilizes orchestral string elements.

In contrast to his mostly wide angle lens lyrics, “She Means A Lot To Her Friends And Family” is positively microscopic in comparison. Nix can become extremely passionate while he’s singing, which sets the contrastingly quiet “It’s The Day’s End” apart from the rest. In this complicated world of ours, it’s good to know that smart and passionate people like Robert Nix are diligently using music to understand this complex home planet of ours.
