i gotta check this out like....yesterday...i love alk3 especially danny..i thought it was odd how you concluded your review with a sentence that said " And that's the perfect way to describe what Andriano brings to the table."....thankks!
Great review.This album is so great. Me and Denver is probably my personal favorite as well. There are a couple others that stand out every time I listen as well, but I can't remember what they are. I think I really dig Hollow Sounds and Let Me In, though.
I saw him in Gainesville and it was great. I meant to ask him what the story was behind the use of some of the same lyrics on "From this oil can" and his one new song on the Trio acoustic CD, but I forgot.
I had the distinct privilege of listening to Dan play this album live along with Dave Hause at the Crowbar in Ybor City, Florida a couple of weeks ago. It was a small venue mirrored by a full-blown rap/hip-hop party, but the atmosphere that night was electric. Ian's review hits the nail on the head--Dan's vocal style has not only gotten smoother, but the richness of his lyrics as well. Dan Andriano is truly a musician that cannot be fully captured by mp3, vinyl, or cd. See.Them.Live. Sell your kids, your grandma, and your Prius, and get down to the nearest show. You will not regret it.
