CD Reviews

Hard Station
Hudson Valley Slim | Newton Highlands, MA USA | 08/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Paul Brady at his peak - and I love it all. A desert island disc, a keeper. Amazing that this one slipped through the cracks. Paul Brady is (if you don't already know) one of the finest songwriter/musicians alive. 'Nothing But the Same Old Story' says it all."
Paul Brady's foray into "popular" music
Hillary Hildebrand | Miami, FL, USA | 09/23/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Longtime fans of Paul Brady will remember his days with Andy Irvine and the uncomprimisingly approach that characterized his early albums. "Hard Station" marks a break with solely traditional (or traditionally inspired) songs and sparse instrumental accompaniment; in this collection of original pieces Brady brings the heart and soul of his earlier recordings to a style of song that is unique in both its message and the way it is delivered. Every song on this CD is well-thought, well orchestrated, and well delivered; this (for me) has been an album that, though not outstanding at first, has become a good and trusted friend, seeming always to listen to me as I listen to it."
Can't understand those people...

"Can't understand why no-one has written a review on this CD.Paul Brady is a star in Ireland and completely unknown in Germany, where I live.But it's true: I ran into it (as a vynil record) by chance, because someone gave me some LPs from her old vinyl collection.I was amazed from the start: Paul Brady's music is something of a mixture between Christopher Cross, Randy Newman, Chris de Burgh, Irish Folk music and a lot more.And all this is always his own music, never someone else's.I had this record ten years ago and I'm still listening to it."
