Album Review

The reason Carly Simon gushes adoringly over David Saw in a bio she wrote for him can that be found on his MySpace is obvious: back in 1974, she gave birth to him in England and put him up for adoption. Not really. But so pure and pretty and mellow and real is Broken Down Figure, his first release on Simon's son Ben Taylor's label, Iris Records, that it sounds very much the product of a mingling of Simon and Taylor DNA. It's not just the playing, which is unpretentious, unhurried, and often understated, it's the words to these songs: "Some love sticks like glue, some love falls apart/Some love seems so cruel, when it keeps you in the dark/And some love breaks the rules, but some love breaks your heart," he sings on "Some Love," one of several tracks in this batch of ten that pulls at heartstrings with genuine force. Vocally, Saw can sound like a mashup of Jack Johnson and Josh Rouse, but artistically he belongs to the school of '70s strummers and singers who interpreted the rules of their own hearts while ignoring the whoosh of the broader world. Still, there's nothing retro about sincerity: Saw's simple songs are timeless in the Taylor tradition. As long as hearts break, swell, or otherwise sink down in chests, these songs will resonate.

Customer Reviews

If it's fixed, Break it down.

I have had the great plesure of owning an advance copy of this album for several weeks now. The songs are Honest and clever, the vibe is easy and the guitar playing is exceedingly difficult. "Broken Down Figure" is Jammin' I suggest you all put it in your pod's. Thanks for a truly exceptional album David.

Amazing Music

David Saw's new CD is amazing. There is a great mix of songs here. Some are heartfelt and beautiful, and some a bit funky. There is something for everyone on this CD. This is music everyone can relate to. Every song is valuable, this is not a CD where you only like one or two songs, believe me you want them all. I recently saw this artist live and you are getting his music, as he truly sounds, on this release. A few favorites are "Don't Call" "Some Love" "Simple Song" and "Someone's gonna love you". You will play this CD over and over. Enjoy.


At first, Saw manages a sound one can simultaneously liken to James Taylor and Jack Johnson. But after some extended listening, the lyrics strike a shallow, cliche chord. Unless you enjoy hearing poorly orchestrated whining , just buy 'Dont Call.'
