CD Reviews

I know the place of which he speaks so profoundly...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like songs that actually deliver a lyric punch with a backdrop that is quintessentially Americana, then I strongly recommend Human Wilderness. A close listen will certainly reward. Its always a good idea to look at our culture through the watchful eye of the poet. Of course Dylan and Springstein have revealed much, but Jeff Smith takes a look at that wilderness often overlooked - the middle size American town where their creative people are treated like freaks at worst, and polyannas at best. In towns like these the underlying inferiority complex of its people can crush a budding local artist with an attitude like " ...can't be much good if they're from around here". Jeff has definitely benefitted from getting out of town. As for the music, it works as a perfect ally to create what is simply music you need to hear. This is good stuff."

"I played in a couple of bands with Jeff several (I won't say how many) years ago and he inspired me to use music as an outlet. He has outdone himself this time. The tunes are a excellent mix of pop songs, blues and a little touch of rock-a-billy. Many of them bring back memories of the old neighborhood, but I actually liked the songs before I even got into the lyrics. This should be in everyone's music library (unless your into Pantera). Keep those hits a coming. Fast-n-Bulbous forever!"

"This cd was released back in 1996. It is now 1998, and people are just starting to realize how good this really is. I play it at work in a music store in Nashville, and everyone who has heard it has liked it. It doesn't matter if you like rock, country, blues, whatever. This cd blends it all together for a great sound. If you don't have it yet, get it. You need to know what you've been missing."
