Synopsis

Amazon.com
Greg Brown might be one of America's most underrated national treasures. The singer-songwriter from Iowa has penned so many good songs over the course of his career, simply going from strength to strength. And Further In might be the best yet, as spare as a Japanese garden, illuminated by small touches, like the slide work on "China." At his darkest, Brown can conjure deep shadows, and he does on "Small Dark Movie," but he's also more than capable of relieving any traces of gloom ("Hey Baby Hey"). --Chris Nickson

CD Reviews

Masterful
A. Butterfield | UK | 10/01/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is deep, subtle, intelligent stuff. You'll need to listen over and over again, but you'll want to; it just gets better and better. This album really is a case of less is more. I love the fact that there doesn't have to be a selection of up-tempo tracks, doesn't have to be drums, doesn't have to be anything but great songs and the sparest - yet solid and rhythmic - musical setting. Greg Brown's voice is the icing on the cake. You need to buy this."
I'm Not High

"I own seven Greg Brown CDs and this one is my favorite and in my top ten of all time. This guy should be much more popular than he is. He and Lyle Lovett have similar styles to where they can write such beautiful and sad songs, but then can write songs that are just so funny, although their music is different.Everything works on Further In and there is not a bad song. Kelly Joe Phelps and Bo Ramsey are awesome as well. If you buy only one Greg Brown CD, this is it. If you buy more, buy in this order: One Night, The Live One, Dream Cafe, The Poet Game, Slant 6 Mind and Covenant.Check out Lyle Lovett's Joshua Judges Ruth, Pontaic, His Large Band or The Road to Ensenada. Kelly Joe Phelps' first disk is awesome too.Martin Sexton is also awesome. His Black Sheep and his live disc are incredible."
Hey Baby Hey baby Hey Baby Hey

"For about a month after breaking up with my last boyfriend, I wouldn't listen to this CD because I was afraid it would bring back painful memories. Finally I bit the bullet and let this music heal me... it is the most powerful, profoundly beautiful album I have ever owned. It's so good sometimes you just have to cry along with it, sometimes you just have to laugh along with it, and you always have to smile along with it"
