Synopsis

Amazon.com
With that ever-present catch in his plainspoken voice, Kevin Devine (Miracle of '86) is the epitome of the post-emo singer/songwriter. That vulnerability extends to the lyrics on his major label debut, following a well received trio of indie efforts. As the New York native explains, "These songs helped me figure out what I thought about the last year of my life." Backed by the Goddamn Band (Amy and Chris Bracco, Carey Brandenburg, Mike Skinner, Russell Smith, and Margaret White), the 26-year-old vows to "get his head on straight" in the country-tinged "Less Yesterday, More Today" and "prays for protection" on the spare "Heaven Bound & Glory Be." Clearly, there's some catharsis going on here. Highlights include the gentle pop of "Brooklyn Boy" and the Beatle-esque "Go Haunt Someone Else." Like the achingly vulnerable confessions of Conor Oberst's Bright Eyes and Chris Carrabba's Dashboard Confessional, Put Your Ghost to Rest is sure to receive a lot of love from the producers of shows like The O.C. and One Tree Hill--and tender souls throughout the land. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

"while not my favorite kevin record (make the clocks move holds my heart), this is a phenomenal record that shouldn't be passed by. it is a very stong major label debut and it's a shame that it isn't getting the praise & recognition it deserves."
