Album Review

On his third album, One Day Die, Matt Duke continues to be a frustratingly uneven singer/songwriter. Much of the time, his music is over-arranged, with the hooks buried and the instruments getting in each other's way, and his singing, ranging from a throaty tone to a falsetto, is mannered, doing no favors to the often-obscure lyrics. But every once in a while, he will break out a catchy, direct song with good lyrics that he sings straight. Examples here include "Needle and Thread" and "The Hour." It's not that he should make entire albums of such tunes, but in varying his approach, he would be better off toning down the arty embellishments in favor of clarity. As it is, he remains a clearly talented artist who doesn't seem to be able to distinguish his strengths from his weaknesses.

Customer Reviews

Medium Rock!

This album gives me a new sense of belief in everything Matt Duke stands for! This CD is so different from anything Matt's put out in the past and I think it has a lot to do with his growth not only as a man, but a musician as well. Already existing crowd favorites like "Needle and Thread" and "Love you Anymore" don't disappoint! "Kangaroo Court" was well worth the wait- totally different vibe than the Matt we're used to, but I'm diggin' it! I've never believed in someone as much as Matt. Please, please support this extremely talented musician! You won't regret it!

The album of this Century!!!

Matt Duke has done such an AMAZING job on this album. Once again, his vocals are flawless!!! His upbeat songs are just amazing. Kangaroo Court and Seriously, Indulge Me will get you movin.' 'Love You Anymore' is just oh so touching, you assume someone means it when they say they love you...until this song says that he's saying it, but knows he doesn't mean it, wow. By far the BEST song on this album is 'The Bench on a Hill with Tom Ramblewood'. Yeah, that's quite a title, but it is oh so emotional, you just wanna find this guy and hug him. "We just roll each rock to the top just to watch it fall back down." This album is my favorite, just all around great, so if you haven't clicked "buy", you're missing out on the BEST music to be released this century. This raises the bar as to what music should be.

pretty freaking amazing

Been following this guy for some time, he's the real deal -- amazing artist, incredible live and overall great person

His music keeps getting better and this album is no different- do you yourself a favor a buy it
