Editors’ Notes

Steve Forbert's been making records since 1978 and has stayed true to his interests, offering up literate roots-rock with a sensitivity that should have ranked him right at the top of his peers. However, for a variety of reasons (fate, being what it is, at the top of the list), he's settled into a career that's solid if unspectacular in terms of expanding his audience base. His voice has become more weathered over the years, until it sounds like Bill Morrissey with a cold or like ex–Kingston Trio member John Stewart on his last albums. It's a thoroughly engrossing instrument. "Baby, I Know" wouldn't sound as wise or as weary without Forbert's rasp. Ben Harper adds guitar to the aching "In Love with You" and "That'll Be Alright." Ben Sollee holds down the bass and adds a cello in spots for flavor, especially for "Don't Look Down, Pollyanna," a sweet lament that tells the story of America in foreclosure and other bad-luck tales with a sense of honesty. 

Customer Reviews

Forbert is Back!

It's so great to hear one of the best American songwriters back to his roots, writing great, gut-wrenching songs while still keeping his humor. This album feels fresh, real, and honest. A great listen

Freshest album in a long time for Forbert

With his vocals more in control (he had gotten to be a tad of a caricature of his own style), I am so pleased to hear unique melodies, instrumentation, dry vocals with little reverb, and no novelty songs. I've been a "fan" since Slim, and I'm really not a pushover just because albums have his name. Some just left me thinking he'd lost it. I really dig this album - really don't know where it came from, but, like I said, I'm pleasantly surprised - and excited to feel like I'm hearing a follow-up to "Alive on Arrival," truly.

the dylan of his generation.

Strong words. I believe Forbert is as American as it gets. It is just amazing how he always captures snapshots of the frailty and the joy of life in such a poetic and compelling way. Our least recognized and under appreciated treasure.
