Surely a Memorable Effort

"Three years ago, after seeing the video for "New Song" on MTV's 120 Minutes, I immediately had to find this album. "New Song" was the hook, but what reeled me in were the stellar tracks populating the rest of the album. Lee, not yet 18, makes a remarkable showing on this album. His music could simply be described as a boy and his guitar, but that fails to underscore his talent as a songwriter. Much of Lee's work on this album (and on his earlier Grandpaw Would) are stories of a young man searching for love, and searching for himself. These themes are present in standouts like "How to Survive a Broken Heart" and "Career Choice," the former of which brought Lee a wider audience through its appearance on the soundtrack to There's Something About Mary. Lee also shows a sense of humor in "End of the World," and "Household Name," a song about 80's television teen idols. The entire album is solid all the way through, and yet leaves room for great artistic growth. Look for great things to come from Ben Lee, but don't forget this one, either.Quick Picks: If you like Ben Lee, try these (and vice versa): Luscious Jackson, Rufus Wainwright, Lotion"

"An album has to be pretty amazing for me to hand out a top rating. This is one of those albums. Every track on here is incredible. You won't have to skip a single one. Just let the album play. It will hold your attention all the way through. Ben covers a variety of topics here, but his specialty seems to be the pain of young love. Maybe it's because he started making music when he was so young, but he captures the feeling of those early relationships perfectly. The songs here have a live feel to them, like he's playing them right in the room with you. It's mostly him and his guitar with a few other instruments thrown in here and there. Two of my favorite tracks come in the middle and towards the end of the album. "Ketchum" is a beautiful slow song with violin and cello on it and "Grammercy Park Hotel" just has that feeling of what it's like in a big city during the very small hours of the morning. Ben has put out some really great albums, but this one is the one I find myself listening to the most. I highly suggest you pick this up."
Ben Lee is God.

"I listen to this album all day long. I love Ben Lee. To write a masterpiece like this at ages 17 and 18 is pure genius. Highly recommended to anyone who needs a good dose of great music and great lyrics. -Skip from the band Downinside"
