Fine Originals and Traditional Tunes from a Great Performer
James Skrydlak | Pella, Iowa | 08/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There isn't a track on this CD that isn't a winner. My personal favorite is the sentimental waltz "Like I Used to Do", but I wouldn't argue with somebody who chose the sarcastically funny "Lonely at the Bottom, Too" or several others. The backup musicians provide the perfect complement to Tim's fine singing. This CD accomplishes the formidable task of being true to Tim's music while at the same time accessible to those who aren't already acquainted with it."
As Lyle Lovett says, "We should all be so odd..."

"I live for Tim O'Brien's appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival. Not only is he a great picker (mandolin, mandola, mandocello), keening fiddler, and super songwriter, but as far as I'm concerned he's the real Mr. Blue-Eyed Soul. "Odd Man In" is also by far O'Brien's most accessible album, jam-packed with originals and classics. His tragic take on "Flora, the Lily of the West" is incomparable, but he also sears on his own creations, including my favorite, "Every Tear Has a Reason Why." In fact, there's a Tim for all seasons. Prefer the jocular guy? Have a go at "Lonely at the Bottom, Too" or "That's What I Like About You." Another of this disc's numerous pleasures? It's so crisply produced that every time Jerry Douglas and his dobro, or Stuart Duncan and his fiddle, chime in, I'm inclined to genuflect. You'll get religion, too--C. of E., of course! Though lately, Tim's become a little Bob Zimmerman-obsessed (vide his unlikely but fine "Red on Blonde"), I rather wish he'd stick to his guns."
One of My Favorite CD's

""Odd Man In" is my favorite Tim O'Brien CD, and probably one of my favorite CD's of all time. I've been listening to it for years and I never get tired of it. Every song is great, especially "One Way Street", "Lone Tree Standing",and "Flora, the Lily of the West". "Hold to a Dream" is my favorite Tim O'Brien song, and he's written some great ones. The musicianship on this CD is incredible, Tim's singing is gorgeous. What more could you ask for? If you don't have this CD, you should buy it. You won't be disappointed."
