CD Reviews

Raw, unabashed songwriting
Daniel Hamblin | Appalachia | 02/24/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album captures a summer of musicality in the life of a young, unabashed songwriter. After watching "The Devil in Daniel Johnston" I was compelled to pick up some of his music. His work is extremely raw and revealing. There is a level of intimacy seldom conveyed in recorded music. It is not something that you would or could listen to constantly but it is powerful while you do. My emotional response when listening has ranged from outright joy to subtle embarrassment. Again, you will inevitably be taken aback by the vulnerability in the music, especially on tracks like "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Your Grievances" where an upbeat Daniel encourages "everyone" to join in although he is most likely alone in his sister's garage pounding out the tune on a toy organ. Not for everyone but very important to some."
Raw & True

"Wanted to second much of what Daniel Hamblin stated in his review. This is an amazing, sincere effort. If the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston is accurate, here's this disturbed kid out in a garage in Texas banging on an old chord organ producing something stunning.

As with all of his work, it's minimalistic. But, in contrast to most of Daniel Johnston's music, this is more melodic, and I think, more accessible to the less hardcore fans.

Not for everyone. But give a listen to samples. In particular, "Don't let the sun go down on your greviences.""
