5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Indigo Girls Album!
The title of this new Indigo Girls album makes it natural to compare the song-writing styles of the two Indigo Girls a little.
4-0 out of 5 stars Deserved better recording and producing
I am a huge IG fan. Don't regret the purchase at all. I enjoy the songs, but this CD seems rushed. Something is missing in the mixing or recording or something. Seems that there is no intrumental or vocal nuance, unimaginative background music, almost the kind of thing you get with a live recording. Sometimes the background vocals overpower the song (Pink sounds great in Rock n Roll Heavens Gate but totally overpowers Amy, Emily and the intruments IMHO). I think it would have been a much better album had more time and attention to detail been spent in production and recording.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just like when you were on the Today show w/ Bryant Gumbel
Wow - okay, this album reminds me of the music that made me want to sing, write, and play guitar when I was 13 years old.There I was, watching the Today show with Bryant Gumbel...and there they were, the Indigo Girls performing Closer to Fine.I had no idea who they were, but I loved their sound, it was like nothing I had heard before - so I asked my mom to buy me the album.That same year I went to one of my first concerts and watched IG perform with Joan Baez and sure enough I was a folk music lover.

Editorial Review

The premise was simple. Bruce Springsteen invites a dozen or so New York City musicians--packing banjos, fiddles, accordions and the like--to his New Jersey farmhouse for a three-day hootenanny, and tape is rolling. The results are sublime, his 21st album featuring their versions of songs harvested from Springsteen's dog-eared LPs by Pete Seeger. Not all written by Seeger, the songs are how the American folk icon interpreted them, and these organic recordings, with no rehearsals or overdubs, pay tribute with the simplicity and spontaneity he intended. It's not hard to link Springsteen's dissatisfaction with American politics to the protest song "We Shall Overcome" or even the Irish ballad "Mrs. McGrath," where he alters the lyrics to read, "I'd rather have my son as he used to be/Than the King of America and his whole navy." But the beauty of these Seeger Sessions are pieces that underscore the mood of the bandleader, which borders on down-home amusement: the bluegrass outlaw ballad "Jesse James," the Dylanesque "Pay Me My Money Down" and the euphoric "Jacob's Ladder," a gumbo-and-whiskey-fueled romp that could pass for the closing hymn at the Church of Asbury Park.

I bought this right before a road trip.My sister and I fell in love with it.Our 11 year old niece is always making requests whenever we're in the car.She and I can't help but belt out "PAY ME MY MONEY DOWN!"I have also found that it really makes cleaning the house a lot more fun too.

I have a rule: I don't ever give 5 stars to album full of covers.I had to think long and hard about breaking that rule for this one, but I couldn't do it.

5-0 out of 5 stars massive, awesome!Los Lobos return to peak form
Record of the year!Los Lobos have emerged from a long period of coasting, their great musical triumphs seemingly behind them (HOW WILL THE WOLF SURVIVE? and KIKO, their two greatest records, from 1984 and 1992), with a record the equal of those masterpieces.
5-0 out of 5 stars Exquisito Cancion Ciclo!!
Whenever you start talking about music inspired by Los Angeles you'll inevitably provoke the same fauning drivel about the usual suspects. "MORRISON HOTEL" they'll say. Yawn, I'm not 16 anymore. "HOTEL CALIFORNIA" someone will yell, & then start with the gawd-awful qoutes..."they just can't kill the beast!" Can I get ya another COORS LIGHT my sorry little friend? Raymond Chandler & James M. Cain played better "MUSIC" than that on a typewriter, & don't even talk to me about Jackson Browne. If X-Los Angeles ain't on that list, I don't want to hear it. A case could be made for Hole's-Celebrity Skin & Ry Cooder's-Chavez Ravine but with the new LOS LOBOS album "The Town & The City" you can send the jury home. Case Closed! This is the most hauntingly exquisite musical document about the city of fallen angels ever. Cesar Rosas voice is chilling on "If You Were Only Here Tonight". Something happens in the song somewhere between 3-4am. We're not sure what transpired but it was bad and the gentle sorrow in his lament suggests it happens here all the time. A few songs later the incomparable David Hidalgo turns a whiter shade of pale recognizing the "LITTLE THINGS" we take for granted. "No Puedo Mas" shakes & rattles like a neighbour having much more fun. You're either dancing or pounding on the wall. This entire song cycle is a tour that starts in "The Valley", drives through "The City" ends in "The Town" of East L.A. It's dark & it's sad. It's strong & it's hopeful. Needless to say these are peerless musicians. Visionaries who consistently seek out new sonic landscapes. This is a masterwork!

5-0 out of 5 stars Victims of their own talent
If this album had been issued by a band whose name consisted of a number and a noun; and whose members were all in their twenties, decked out in skinny glasses, black leather, little beards, and kinky hair, and whose album art consisted of the band members staring glumly into the eye of a camera,this CD would be HUGE.

Editorial Review

One of the few contemporary bands to land a decidedly roots-rock song on the charts with 2004's Grammy-winning "Heaven," Los Lonely Boys solidified their status as youngsters with an established sound on their first disc. On this highly anticipated studio followup, all talk of the sophomore jinx dissipates with the opening soul-drenched riff rocker "My Way." Although horns are added for extra drama, the three Garza brothers nail this groove as Henry's Stevie Ray Vaughan-fortified guitar powers one of the boys' most fiery performances. Supporter and mentor Willie Nelson joins on the wah-wah driven, Waylon Jennings-styled "Outlaws," as does the brothers' musician father Enrique Sr. Tough midtempo ballads such as "Home" and the very Santana-ish "I Never Met a Woman" follow in the footsteps of "Heaven" as candidates for slow dance song of the year.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Records Since Texas Flood
I just recently purchased this reocrd and it blew me away.Then as a bonus I got to see then perform live, also spectacular.The Boys are amazing musicians and singers. If you close your eyes and listen Henri at times he sounds just like Stevie Ray.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Gem
This album is a pearl, a gem, a diamond. It has one great track after another. There are 13 in all, and you can flip a coin to determine the best cut. LLB's harmonies are sensational, guitar-playing just right. There's a perfect blend of horns, B-3 Hammond, harmonica, sensual tones done in English and Spanish. Sometimes I close my eyes, listen to this disc, over and over again, and think, "how could music sound any better." It can't. I've always felt that reviews are a road map, that buyers should listen to the cuts and determine for themselves. Anyone who doesn't give this 5 stars is deaf to tone and lacks a total understanding of the broad spectrum of music, composition, style and substance. I also caution reviewers to compare artists to one another. I often see other musicians appear in reviews as comparisons. To me, this is nothing more than looking for a needle in a haystack. This cd is a big time winner, just check out the Billboard Charts, not how much you could buy a used copy for. If that was the case, Springsteen's Born to Run (and many, many, many others) are pieces of [...], given they on the net for pennies. My gosh. LLB are mega-talented and Sacred showcases that they will be a major player in the biz for years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Of
Like his hero, Roy Orbison, Chris Isaak maintains a devoted following in Australia. Songs such as Somebody's Crying, Only The Lonely, Blue Hotel and Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing charted down here. His Best Of album topped the Australian album charts. Isaak is shameless in his devotion to the retro sound of Orbison and Presley and rightly so. He does what he does very well as evidenced in this collection of his best tracks and biggest hits. All of his albums (except the Christmas CD) are represented. This wonderful music sounds like nothing else around today and with the constant monotony of new music in 2006, that is a breath of fresh air. A must have collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but TV show "soundtrack" would do it
Chris Isaak surely has plenty for a "Best of" collection, but why didn't he release a set of the songs performed on his Showtime series? That hit almost everything here plus all the covers, giving the Silvertones a good showcase as well.

Editorial Review

Todd Snider, the East Nashville antihero, can always be counted on to deliver a brilliant spitball of humor and satire, shot across a classroom devoted to John Prine, Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, and the Rolling Stones. Here, on one of his most instantly accessible albums, he balances troubadourish recounts of personal experience and mythmaking (the getting-mugged-in-Memphis tale of "The Highland Street Incident"), the chronicling of not-so-famous-moments in history (Bob Dylan's ass-whipping of Phil Ochs in "Thin Wild Mercury"), and songs of romantic surrender. "All That Matters," a declaration of marital love with a nearly prayerful electric guitar solo from the great Will Kimbrough, shows how profound Snider can be in his simplicity. But his genius is best captured in the deceptively smart "Just Like Old Times," particularly in an exchange with a cop about a high school photo, carried in a wallet since 1982. Here, on his half-drunk vocals, Snider makes clear what he really is: A professional smart-ass whose bravado masks a wounded heart. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Todd will not likely be invited to the White House . . .
I'd never even heard of this guy until I saw him on the Tonight Show a couple of weeks ago and then it was difficult to find the album locally.I'm glad I did.It's the best album I've bought this year.If you like folk/rock with a bite, then this is the album for you.The social commentary of "Looking for a Job" (performed on the Tonight Show) puts me in mind of Woody Guthrie and a lot the others remind me of a young Bruce Springsteen.
4-0 out of 5 stars Country music for people who don't usually listen to country music
This album gets better and better with each listen.I know that's what everybody says, but it's true.While I haven't listened to any of Snider's other records, I can't really compare it to his general output. What I do know that I intend to listen to his other discs at some point, making this a great starting point for other new fans.
3-0 out of 5 stars Add a half-a-star, please, but it isn't as strong...
as the three albums he released on the "Oh Boy" label this decade (four if you count "Near Truths and Hotel Rooms", his live CD.) Todd does some rockin' here with a band, a la his "Viva Satellite" disc for MCA in the late '90's, but I have never thought rock was his true genre, and I've been a fan from the beginning. "The Devil You Know" starts off with the two weakest songs of the project, in my opinion, and ends with the two best. Inbetween, the slower tunes, with lyrics clearly enunciated, seem superior to any of the up-tempo efforts. This is Todd's seventh disc of new work (there is also a compilation of his best from the MCA years available) and I would rate it fifth in overall appeal. However, I am nearly 62 years old, and my favorite kind of music is confessional singer-songwriter folk and country- style stuff. When a great lyricist like Todd rocks so loud you can't clearly understand his poetry, it seems a waste to me. So my advice, if you are a fan already, is to buy this to support him, but expect to put only half of it on repeat play. If you are new to Snider, then "East Nashville Skyline" or "New Connections" or "Happy to be Here" or "Songs For The Daily Planet" are more satisfying choices. His voice sometimes cracks, but his wit saves the performances. He has been troubled by substance abuse, low sales, and less attention than he deserves, but I hope he keeps on keepin' on, because he has a distinctive talent. For an idea of what his concerts are like, buy "Near Truths and Hotel Rooms"---the closest thing to seeing Todd live you can get. ... Read more

Editorial Review

California's Los Lobos are the reigning kings of Tex-Mex/Rock Espanol. But this debut CD by the San Angelo, Texas band Los Lonely Boys might herald a changing of the guard. This is truly a band of brothers, led by guitarist/vocalist Henry Garza and his younger, bass-and-drum-playing siblings Jojo and Ringo. Like a lot of groups, they had to move away to achieve fame--in their case, to Nashville. But after the release of their EP, Willie Nelson heard them, put them on tour as his opening act, and recorded them at his studio. Stylistically, the Garza brothers' bilingual songs about love and life combine Stevie Ray Vaughan blues, Santana-style guitar licks and R&B. Nelson helps out on guitar, with Reese Wynans on keyboards. Produced by Keb Mo and B.B. King producer John Porter, the music is honest, driving, and down home, especially on the organ-filled uptempo tracks "Senorita" and "Tell Me Why." The stinging guitar solo on the Afro-anthemic "Onda" recalls the '70s grooves Santana built his chops on, while "The Answer" and "More than Love" are raw power ballads that show off this group's dynamism and diversity.

5-0 out of 5 stars True Love at First Hear
LOS LONELY BOYS, the self-titled album by three twenty something brothers from Texas, is jam packed with indescribably beautiful music that's one part rock & roll, one part country, one part Chicano, one part lullaby and 200 parts stone-cold gorgeous.
5-0 out of 5 stars The guitar!!
Henry Garza is really good, like a combintion of Santana and SRV, adding some personal style.

5-0 out of 5 stars See them LIVE...Unbelievable talent!
I just saw them live, and if you think they sound good on the CD, then you gotta check them out in concert.Henry is without a doubt a guitarist to be reckoned with.You can here the undertones of SRV in some of his riffs, but he has a unique sound of his own which sets him apart from his mentors.

With each new Dan Zanes and Friends release, many fans worry that his homespun magic will eventually hit the right note with the masses. Zanes' music, as offbeat as it is organic, is so special to forward-thinking young families that plenty have batted around half-baked plans to attach a password to it. Anybody else can sell out, the thinking goes, but please, please not him. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not the best
This is our newest addition to our Dan Zanes collection. My girls like it a lot. As usual, it contains a lively collection of folk tunes and original songs, all of which entertain kids without making their parents' ears bleed. Overall, this isn't our favorite Zanes collection; a few of the songs are a little boring. However, there are a few real standouts on this CD. My kids love Choo Choo Ch'Boogie, Walkin' the Dog, and Grey Goose, and they've both spent the last few weeks belting out I Don't Want Your Millions Mister (and even making up their own words, like "I don'twant your cooties sister...."). You can explain the context of some of these folks songs to your kids if you want, or just let them enjoy the music. The CD comes packaged with a nice booklet the kids like to look at in the car.

4-0 out of 5 stars worth the money
My daughter loves this cd.So for that fact alone it is worth it.I guess my only complaint is that some of the songs are not really geared to kids.She likes track #2, #13 the best and they are great songs I like and great for kids - a shaking song and a walk the dog song.Some of the other songs are kinda boring for her.But she likes it and it keeps her from screaming so - it is worth it!And it doesn't make me crazy - like some of the other child music out there.

Growing up in Indiana, you couldn't NOT be a Mellencamp fan.I embraced his music and lyrics with a passion, and to this day, he remains my favorite artist.As for this collection, I bought it although I have every CD he has recorded.What goes most unnoticed to me is the lack of respect his musicians most rightly have earned.I could have done without When Jesus Left Birmingham, and he could have included several other songs, most notable to me would be Between a Laugh and a Tear.But John and the record label get it mostly right.Another reviewer noted that the sax solo in Love and Happiness is a nuisance, but I find it my favorite part of the song, and yes, it is louder in the mix.John and his band rocks, and you won't regret picking this up.

They were together just five years, and between the potent era of 1969-‘71, Creedence Clearwater Revival reached the Top 10 with nine different singles, an accomplishment the band's architect John Fogerty has cracked just once ("The Old Man Down the Road") since CCR's demise in 1972. And now that the three-decade battle between Fogerty and the Fantasy label hasended, the man-and-band reunion comes full circle with a 25-song compilation that packages many of CCR's made-for-radio hits with a sprinkling of solo numbers and live recordings from recent Fogerty tours. Fogerty hasn't penned a whole lot of clunkers, and his CCR catalog sparkles with modernly remastered chooglin' classics like "Bad Moon Rising," "Travelin' Band," "Fortunate Son," "Lookin' Out My Backdoor" and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain." But the non-chronological sequencing is unpredictable, and far too many Creedence gems were left on the cutting room floor to call this package "The Ultimate." Read more

Too often these days, a CD is billed as being the ultimate this, or the must-have that, and is priced that way, too.These are often disappointing because they just are too expensive for what you get. I got this CD for $17 and there are 25 great songs on it.Some live stuff, too.You get songs from throughout Mr. Fogerty's career, and enough of them to really get a good deep feel for the quality of his songwriting.This one is worth the money.

I know its a Import as most dvds are today.Mine plays excellent In audio and picture.You feel like you are sitting in the audience with John performing.Give Premonition 10 Stars.Anything after John's Premonition dvd can not compare to it.No matter how hard they try to bring back his music on a Cd or a dvd.Premonition Is the best dvdof all of times.

I agree, this is one of the best albums ever.I grew up listening to it, and bought the cd as soon as it was released (my old LP is still played as well.)The only thing I would add is that don't forget Tompall.He was one of the best, even though this album wasn't his best effort.I would suggest checking out the newly re-released album "Charley" which is one of the two albums on "My Nortorious Youth".If you love the outlaws you will love this album.BTW, anyone know how tompall is doing these days?

Waylon and Willie, of course, are the spine of this collection. Jessi Colter adds great measures of marvelous spice with her soulful singing and songwriting. Tompall Glazier registers a tad lesser than the rest, but it's still a fantastic CD. And the bonus tracks are pure icing on the cake. Mmmmmmmmmm. Great country music!!!

A weird wonderful mixture of Bruce, Warren Zevon and Robert Earl Keen.His lyrics make you want to hurry up & learn the words so you can sing along.A most enjoyable CD.

1-0 out of 5 stars About 20 years too late!
While musically James McMurtry has talent, the message of his album and especially the hit song "We Can't Make It Here"is outdated and unrealistic. In the song McMurtry laments about shirts being made in Singapore and the problems of outsourcing jobs, among other ridiculous things. It seems he would like to live in the world of the 1950s. While appealing on the surface, it is a waste of time to think like this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect
I'm one of those folks who bought this strictly for CD 2, because I already have everything that's on CD 1.Regarding CD 1, all in all, I have to say they did an "almost perfect" job in the song selection.The "Garcia" album is well represented in that you get the good songs without those scary instrumentals.From "Compliments," I agree with selecting Let It Rock, but I would not have selected Russian Lullaby.I would have selected that mysterious and wonderful song Mississippi Moon or that fantastic song, Turn on the Bright Lights.I think that "Reflections" is well represented.From "Cats Under the Stars," I love the title track of course, but I would not have selected Rubin and Cherise or Rhapsody in Red.The selections from "Run for the Roses" are good selections.All in all, CD 1 is very very good, even with my minor quibbles.

5-0 out of 5 stars Coming from a musician- this is great music!
I'm a musician of many different instruments and me and my wife AND our 2 year old son love Dan Zanes.All the members of the band have exceptional musical talent and the different sounds go great together.People keep saying it's for older kids- but our 22 month old loves most of the songs on this CD.And when they show the videos on t.v. he immediately starts dancing around.We took him to see Dane Zanes live at Disney MGM studios and he had a great time dancing with the other kids.Met him after the show and he's an incredibly nice guy too.We don't really buy the Sesame street type music for him so that might be why he doesn't lose interest in this type of music.Of all the other "kids music" available out there (Laurie Berkner, Milkshake, Lisa Lobe sp?) Dan Zanes is definately our favorite.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for children and adults alike!
We learned about Dan Zanes (sad to say) from Playhouse Disney (which my kids watch more than they should). I chose this particular album because it had our favorite song (among the ones we had seen featured), "Malti" (in Spanish). Immediately, my children adored this CD and wanted to play it every day, several times a day. Oddly enough, neither my husband nor I objected; we sing along, too. A mix of traditional and original tunes, excellently orchestrated; real wit and personality come through. We'll be getting more CDs by Dan Zanes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Zane and the Divas
I love this CD, love Dan Zane.It's nice to find music that can be enjoyed by the whole family. In other words, music for kids that is actually musical.My favorite by far is track 10, All Around the Kitchen (with Loudon Wainwright III).My wife is partial to Malti (with Barbara Brousal) and my daughter picked The Hokey Pokey (with Father Goose) as her favorite.

This young lady has the quality voice that one could compare to the likes of Janis Joplin. Buy this CD and go out and see the band live when you can. I have turned many friends onto this band .
1-0 out of 5 stars The Hippies Must Die!!!!!!>:)
This is the latest overrated band of crunchy people "from Vermont". Vermont has been overrun by flatlander new bohemian types who come from New Jersey and New York and places like that and bring all the drugs and attitudes with them. They are so hyped up in VT that people- including the bands themselves seem to think that they have the second coming of the Beatles on their hands.A friend of mines dad was raving about their "Coming Home" tour in VT... $7 tickets... and how it was going to be "like hundreds of dollars" to see them after that because they were going to "make it big".Well I just saw them at the Paradise in Boston and tickets were $15 and I didn't even pay that because the hippy chick at the merch table was so stoned.This chick tries to look cute while sounding like Janis Joplin and I ain't buying it.She's ok but Janis Joplin she isn't. And is it really necessary to haul a B-3 all around? Not that great on keyboards either.But compared to the rest of the band she is much more talented because they are all hacks.

This will be the fourth time I am purchasing this CD. My daughters have "borrowed" every other copy I had. Just the fact that I would buy this 4 times (so far) should tell you something. And you know what? If I lose this copy, I'll buy it AGAIN!!

Like the artist himself, this CD of greatest hits is solid and reliable, and radio friendly. Does this make for bad music? Not always and definitely not in this case. Mellencamp himself doesn't think of himself as a musical genius, and this is part of his charm. He knows his place in the order of the universe and his humility shows on his songs, in a good way. They are simple and straight forward. Most of the tracks on here rock, which is more than a lot of other more pretentious types can account for. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pogoing Into The 21st Century With One Of Rock's Most Colorful Chameleons!
I can't help but think Bob Schneider would be happy to have us all believe that he's content to remain some kind of indie cult star, well-known to only a hip, in-the-know, select few. If, by chance, Schneider really does believe that, he better rethink said mindset, because with THE CALIFORNIAN, his strongest, most complete, set to date, Schneider is posed to become a bona fide rock star. Full of various styles and grooves that come together to form a whole that is equal parts intelligent, edgy and fun, THE CALIFORNIAN is musical magic. I mean, how often do you come across a disc that features elements as diverse as those of Oingo Boingo, The Kinks, The Wallflowers, Rick Springfield - in his more rockin' moments! - Mitch Ryder, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits, yet remain absolutely true to the artist himself?!? Schneider never gets lost among these stylings and influences; rather, he just uses them to flesh out his already distinct voice. Things kick off with the growling, propulsive "Holding In The World." Picture the Red Hot Chili Peppers backing Tom Waits and you would have a pretty good overview of the cut! Anchored by a lead vocal that seems partially stuck in his throat, Schneider makes it clear that no one is going to tell him what to do...he's going to do it all on his own terms, be it love, his music or life itself. Danny Elfman could have easily written "Game Plan" two decades ago, what with it's frantic edge and quircky vocal. Schneider puts his own spin on this classic "I'll change for you" tale, resulting in a frenetic, fun slice of rock. Another of the disc's high points is "Party At The Neighbors", a rave-up sure to find it's way into a movie or TV show soon. Buoyed by a jammin' backbeat and an energetic lead vocal, Schneider lets us know that a good time was had by all ("We put some hits on the hi-fi/Mixed up some mai tais/For the rest of the night/Everybody got so high"). This is good-time music, meant to make you smile...and move! Anchored by a sultry bassline, "Miss Oblivion" tells the story of a mysterious lover - either human or opium based - that can be both good and bad for you. Toss in a strong, albeit laid-back, lead vocal and great lyrics ("I'm all f**ked up/But it makes a nice disguise"), and you have yet another winner. "Flowerparts" is THE CALIFORNIAN's most delicate track, proving Schneider can handle a lovely ballad with the best of them. Take the hypnotic longing of the Wallflowers at their best, mix it with the hope and resignation of classic Kinks, and you have the musical blueprint for this captivating number. Combine this with Schneider's heartfelt, honest lyrics about appreciating the smaller, more down to earth, things in life ("Don't forget the flower parts/A soft touch and a bleeding heart/A big bow and some empathy/Compassion and sympathy") and you have one of Schneider's best songs to date. "Blauu" is a silly piece of noise, seemingly tossed in for no other reason than to prove Schneider can still be considered "alternative." Not so "Get Up On It", one of the album's most completely realized tracks. Hard-edged, yet melodious, the cut has a propulsive energy that is absolutely infectious, getting under your skin and never letting go! Schneider's vocal is gutsy, while still maintaining a pop vibe, sort of like Rick Springfield at his hardest. This track has radio hit written all over it! Definitely one of the disc's stellar moments! Ditto "Mix It Up", a real toe-tapper. Sort of a cross between the Chili Peppers and Third Eye Blind, with a touch of old school Schneider added in, the arrangement is upbeat and the vocal vibrant. "Mix It Up" is a prime example of how Schneider often proves that the word "pop" isn't a bad thing....it all comes down to what's added to the mix! "Superpowers" could easily fit onto a Mitch Ryder album, or even a Springsteen one (in his more upbeat, giddy moments!)....with it's rumbling rhythm section, ringing guitars and exuberant lead vocal and "la la" chorus, there's a hoppin' vibe here that's undeniable! "Everything I Have Means Nothing To Me Now" is a darkly charged rocker, full of biting lyrics that are delivered in a rapid fire lead vocal that's THIS close to a rap....and it works! It's at this point that things kind of falter....the final third of THE CALIFORNIAN just isn't as strong as the first two. "Boombox" is a pseudo speed metal number, featuring mumbled, undecipherable lyrics, while the title cut is a psychotic story/song that ultimately comes across as plodding and pretentious. In fact, the only real winner is the groove-laden rap number "Mudhouse." Schneider is one of the few white guys who, when he raps, doesn't sound like a white guy rapping....there's still that rock element that allows it to retain it's authenticity. Another winner! Things wrap up with the silly, boozy frat-boy sing-a-long, "The Sons Of Ralph, a cut that does nothing to end the disc on a positive note, and one that's certainly below Schneider's considerable talents. However, that minor misstep aside, THE CALIFORNIAN is Bob Schneider's strongest release to date, as well as one of 2006's best, and well worth anyone's time and attention (As with all my reviews, however, I do have to dock the disc half a star for not including the lyrics, which would have REALLY helped during some of Schneider's more gutteral vocal moments!).

5-0 out of 5 stars Bob Schneider rocks hard...
I've been a fan of Bob's for about 3 years now, and I've seen him live twice...It all started with Lonelyland, and though I'll admit there's a DRAMATIC difference between that album and The Californian, the change is great...

It happens to every hard partier--your lifestyle eventually catches up to you.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Album From A Righteous Rocker
COPPERHEAD ROAD is the best album ever by Steve Earle, blending influences from such artists as Johnny Cash, the Charlie Daniels Band, Waylon Jennings, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Willie Nelson, the Marshall Tucker Band, Tompall Glaser, the Outlaws, Billy Joe Shaver, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Band, and the AllmanBrothers Band circa BROTHERS AND SISTERS with a touch of alternative attitude, creating the best country-rock sound this side of the 70s Southern Rock boom. The songs on side one are a loose suite based on the experiences of Vietnam veterans during and after the war, with several lines in the title track being so cautionary about the dangers of going where you shouldn't be that they inspire me to look at pictures of pretty actresses as a deterrent against hanging out on the wrong side of the city where I currently live (Kingston, NY). Earle's belief that the young Australian tourist jailed in Indonesia on drug-smuggling charges was unjustly convicted makes this an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.

Editorial Review

This young Californian has apparently suffered from a case of mistaken artistic identity in his attempts to forge his own. The blazing guitar chops on this album's "Cold Black Devil/14 Miles" show why some consider him among the most promising of a new generation of bluesslingers, yet much of the material makes him sound more like a young Bob Dylan than the next Stevie Ray Vaughan. Though Dylan comparisons rarely do a developing artist any favors, it's hard to avoid them with the majestic, 10-minute build of "Supersede." Elsewhere, the horn arrangements of "So Hard to Find My Way" and "Close to You" evoke Van Morrison's California days, while the riffing of "Farewell, So Long, Goodbye" rocks like the Rolling Stones. Much of the rest is acoustic balladry that finds Greene achieving a musical intimacy that resists easy comparisons.A multi-instrumentalist featured on organ and piano as well as a variety of guitars, Greene benefits from the musical support of bassist Davey Faragher (Cracker) and drummer Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello's Attractions) and empathic production by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos). As a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, he's more than the sum of his very good influences. Read more
