"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
"If at some point during This Moment Now's running time you don't find yourself thinking, "Wow, this is beautiful," you may want to get your ears checked. 2002 provides the listener with all the right components, exquisite music and soothing melodies to put you in the proper mood. Lush synthesizer symphonics and airy overdubbed vocals gently swirl and intertwine like a plume of smoke rising from an ember. 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
They fill their compositions with extraordinary light and peace, as angelic choirs, strings, keyboards, flutes, and harp join with guitar in a journey of healing joy…Long gentle notes float like feathers on a spring breeze, gently transporting the listener into realms untouched by the ravages of time."This album was 54 weeks on the Billboard: New Age Chart!Steve Ryals
