Synopsis

Amazon.com
Alt, schmalt. Sometimes you have to look to the classic-rock mindset for music that favors keen self-expression over trendy posturing. That's the case with Todd Thibaud, whose singer-songwriterly guitar rock on Favorite Waste of Time is sure to hit that special warm spot for fans of the straight-up sounds of the Wallflowers and early Tom Petty. An Elvis Costello-like vocalist, Thibaud impresses throughout this stripped-down, lyrically untamed effort, whether on the chunky riff rocker "That Wasn't Me," the Dylan-folky "Johanna's Dreams," or the smoldering hidden-track take of Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road." Sure, it's nothing new, but sometimes new is overrated. An excellent debut. --Neal Weiss

"I saw Todd perform as many of the songs on this album as he could during a lunch-hour concert at South Station in Boston... It has been on the top of my CD stack ever since. Every song hit home with a range of emotions from anger and sadness to fatherly love. The music is excellent but raw enough that you feel Todd has lived every word. I hear guitar that sounds like George Harrison, ballods that sound Like Paul McCartney's, and emotion that sounds like Fogelberg... But I've never heard anything like it. It's new but its classic."
