Review this album
Oct 22, 2011Amazing album. Funny, skillful, and it stays with you long after each listen. I could see how the meek reviewers might be insulted by some of the more pointed insults but this album is never that damaging (although people have become startling sensitive). Whatever even if you ignore that its one of the best albums I've listened to in a bit. Listen to it, or don't.
Nov 13, 2011Somehow, I think Ry is laughing his ass off! This is nothing like an album of the year. I think that's the point. Every song covers a different musical genre. The lyrics are silly and mostly the musing and ranting and griping of an old man. It rings so true of an aging America. And isn't that what an album is supposed to do? ; give you a thought slant? I find this a truly genius example of American song writing.
I don't find any socialism in carrying a .44. "Lord Tell Me Why" ought to raise a ruckus. "Dreamer" is truly a parody of pick-up ineptness. "Simple Tools" might even make Jimmy Buffett ...shut up!… Expand
