Absolutely Brilliant.
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Michael McDermott" is a brilliant album that ranks among my all-time favorites by any artist. It combines Springsteen-like storytelling with the spiritual searching of Van Morrison, and most amazingly, does it in a way that is uniquely Michael McDermott. His songs contain a lyrical intelligence and depth that is not only rare in contemporary music, but also stand among the best that I have ever heard. The insightful lyrics are matched with unusually rich musical arrangements to create songs which touch the soul; songs of struggle and hope, regret and redemption, longing and surrender. Stephen King, in the liner notes for the album, captures what I want to say better than I can: "I'm always startled by the inability of words to express how good really good rock and roll music can be, but I always know it when I hear it. . . and besides, words are all I have. So let me say it simple: Michael McDermott is a great artist, and this is a great album. Listen and see if you don't agree.""

"STEPHEN "For God's Sake" KING wrote the liner notes for this CD!
It's like reading the ultimate fan letter. Imagine that you are a struggling artist snd you get a little note from the biggest selling popular author in the world! Enough with the fancy punctuation; Michael's music sings for itself. Buy any of his cd's and be happy.
