"On their fifth release, the duo known as 2002 aim for the stars and overshoot their mark, with transcendent glory that translates perfectly through heavenly music with a wider range than they have previously explored. Pamela and Randy Copus seem to draw from an unlimited well of creativity, and this aspect, combined with their heartfelt approach, has established them as one of the top New Age groups. Traces of Enya-like lushness combine with the trademark harp, guitars, flutes, etc, and this addition of voice tracks really expands the divine sounds they create. Through meticulous production and utmost care & sensitivity that they put into this project, "River of Stars" is clearly their best-sounding release yet, and should easily become a runaway best-seller from coast to coast.This album was 74 weeks on the Billboard: New Age Chart !Backroads Music

A most pleasant surprise is the track "Moment of Love" sung by Randy Copus himself. Soothing, reverberated piano/guitar melodies add another layer to the album's ethereal sweetness. This has to be Pamela and Randy's strongest piece of artistry yet… pure heaven."This album was 20 weeks on the Billboard: New Age Chart!TheDailyLama.com

Exactly why an artist who has only made three albums (all of which are in print) and is still active in music should merit a career-spanning compilation is a question for great minds, but since a remarkably large amount of the world still hasn't gotten hip to the smarts, wit, and overall wonderfulness of Amy Rigby's music, 18 Again: An Anthology at least offers the benighted a splendid opportunity to discover what they've been missing in one convenient package.
The Ink Spots played a large role in pioneering the black vocal group-harmony genre, helping to pave the way for the doo wop explosion of the '50s. The quavering high tenor of Bill Kenny presaged hundreds of street-corner leads to come, and the sweet harmonies of Charlie Fuqua, Deek Watson, and bass Hoppy Jones (who died in 1944) backed him flawlessly…
