Customer Reviews

As bright and shiny as a penny in a whisky jar!!

How fast and impatient is America now since 1890? If you listen closely enough to Curtis Eller's American Circus' latest project, you'll be able to tell just how fast. The Banjo is a simple, unsustaining instrument. Played with any moderate tempo, one starts to hear the silence between the notes that enfold this band like an old quilt blanket. What fills this void when we are so used to not having one? A strong sense of story from Eller's lyrics - room for imagination from the listener. And isn't that what music was supposed to be in the first place? A give and take between the performer's/delivery and the listener's vision of what one sees in the mind's eye. A clean performance from the band too! Not sterile, like a new Dyson Vacume cleaning, but rather with the spit and elbow grease of a good disciplined sweeping of your Mother's old corn broom. Good show, Fella's!! Your friend, Dino Soldo

smart, witty and new

this is by far the best new album that l have purchased in years. Curtis takes inspiration from the Americana past and turns it into a new, fresh sound that no one is making right now. It is full of thoughtfull, intelligent lyrics as well as amazing instruments and musical sounds. Who knew the banjo could rock! There is no other band l recomend more then Curtis Eller. l can't wait for more albums!

His song writing just keeps gettin' better

As the previous to reviews state, this album is really great fun. My favorites include 'Taking Up Serpents Again', 'Buster Keaton' and 'Sugar in my Coffin'. Buy a couple of his songs - he's definately worth checking out. Ellers live shows are very entertaining too, so if you get the chance go check him out. It'll be an evening to remember for sure!
