Editorial Reviews

Review

Zapruder may well have taken the largest step any artist, literary or otherwise, has taken in years toward reminding us why we love poetry . . . Pink Thunder is that remarkable historical happening that's both a great album and a great poetry collection. --The Huffington Post

If Pink Thunder has a message, it s that the relationship between poetry and music is more elusive, more conditional, than that of traditional lyrics in a song. This is the best thing about the project, the way Zapruder uses his music to mirror, or echo, his own reading of the material, and its emotional effect. --L.A. Times

Zapruder lets the songs wander, as if he's creating a melodic new method of storytelling... He builds songs in a Jon Brian-esque style, with Elliot Smith-like sensitivity and raw ache in his vocals, treading ever-so-lightly over tracks of electric guitar, drums, synthesizers, and in some cases, marimba or brass horns. --San Francisco Bay Guardian

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Pink Thunder reached inside of me and pulled some primeval associations out of my subconscious, rendering them into intrigue and delight, memory, and hope. Nostalgia, all the deep things that feel (and are) meaningful about life, a freshness in concept and delivery (in contrast with the above-metioned nostalgia) that eludes academic deconstructivism, and happiness are somehow all wrapped up in these pages, along with the music that accompanies the book. The book and music each stand on their own, but are two facets of the same diamond- the heart of the soul of man. Don't know what to say - Zapruder's rendering of these inspirations leaves me humbled & somewhat speechless ("How uncommon," many would say!) It's rare that I come across the work of an artist that I can really climb into, that provides a kind of refuge for my mind/soul, and a journey travelled via the work that I want to traverse again & again.
