CD Reviews

This is one of those great albums that no one ever heard of.
Stephen Cabral | New England | 12/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Mark Germino was a poet from NC that moved to Nashville, bought his first guitar and became a musician. This is one of those great albums that no one ever played or heard of. Released in 1991, it sounds very much like a cross between John Melloncamp, Steve Earle and Warren Zevon. Excellent lyricist and storyteller, most of his songs are about greed, corruption, fascism and freedom. The CD is solid from beginning to end but my two personal favorites are "Burning The Firehouse Down" with it's duo lead guitars and "Rex Bob Lowenstein" which is a fantastic song about a radio DJ who played whatever he wanted. This CD is long out of print but you can buy it used through Amazon for 55 cents. It would be the best half-a-buck you ever spent!"
A country Bruce Springsteen poet with brains

"A country Bruce Springsteen poet with brains. A liberal redneck with skewering, humourous call-it-like-it-is insights. Very very good.

Hard to explain but there it is. Amazing poetry, killer band, pithy sense of humor and lyrics.

I dare you to listen to Exalted Rose or Leroy and Bo's Totalitarian Showdown and the rest of this album and not think this guy is a genius.
It feels like he was doing what he wanted - record company be damned! and having a lot of fun doing it!

I listened to his later followup albums and they didn't match the spirit of this one. It's one of a kind."
