STAGGERING Philly Country-Rock
Henry R. Kujawa | "The Forbidden Zone" (Camden, NJ) | 11/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From the first note I ever heard by Philadelphia's Lonesome Bob, I KNEW I'd found something special. Among the multiple descriptive adjectives that come to mind concerning this album: Powerful, Hard-Driving, Thought-Provoking, Catchy, Gorgeous, Shocking, Violent, Tragic, Blasphemous, and above all-- INTELLINGENT. He covers the "usual" in unusual ways, and the unusual in ways sure to inspire double-takes ("Did I really HEAR that?"). Highlights: "Love Is Not Blind" (people should be more aware of their own actions), "Point Of No Return" (the overwhelming draw of infidelity), "Waltzing On The Titanic" (a peaceful ending of a broken marriage), "What Went Wrong" (do psychiatrists CAUSE more problems than they "cure"?), "The Plans We Made" (a pair of bad marriages leads to a double murder), and "My Mother's Husband" (which includes one of my favorite turns of phrase on the CD: "It's not some complex psychological dynamic, it's just that loneliness is more problematic"). Then there's probably my favorite song on the disc, "Heaven's Gate", which looks at the problems with organized religions ("I was raised a Roman Catholic, they told me everyone else was wrong; which seems somewhat sociopathic, but hey, what the hell-- I belong!"). You just don't find stuff like this on your "average" country album! Back in the 80's, Bob was the drummer in THE BEN VAUGHN COMBO (see THE PRHISTORIC BEN VAUGHN, THE MANY MOODS OF BEN VAUGHN, BEAUTIFUL THING). With Vaughn in L.A., Bob went to Nashville to do this remarkable collection. Ben joins him for the finale, a high-speed remake of "Sleepless Nights". Of recent country albums, only Kevin Johnson's & The Dixie Chicks' have affected me as much as this one!"

"Exellent.This Is Rowdy Country Rock At It's Best,Nothin Fancy,Just Great Music.The Lyrics Are Good,Surprisingly Good.The Guitarist On This Disc Is TIM CARROLL,And If You Can Pick Up His Cd's,Do It Cause This Guy Is By Far The Best Roots Rocker Out There.If You Want To Know To Find His Stuff,Drop Me A Line,You Wont Be Sorry.Anyway,Lonesome Bob's Only Problem Is He Doesn't Have Enough Music Out There."

"I love this Cd from Bob's lonesome twang to his caustic, cynical lyrics. I listen to a lot of country and alt. country and this is one of the best. Someone done you wrong? Done someone wrong? Crying in your beer? This is a CD guaranteed to make you feel better. Lyrics that hit you where you live coupled with a driving country-rock beat."
