Album Review

America in 2009 is a place and time where it isn't hard at all to have the blues, and Scott H. Biram sure seems to know it. The "Dirty One-Man-Band"'s third album for Bloodshot, Something's Wrong/Lost Forever, doesn't spend a lot of time dwelling on the specifics, but if ever there was set of songs that reflects the edgy malaise of a nation trying to shake off war, unemployment and bad karma, this disc fills the bill. "Ain't It A Shame" is a tough bit of gospel-tinged blues in which Biram and his harmonica preaches on a nation full of hate and confusion, and it segues into "Judgement Day," a considerably more raucous assessment of a day when greed and bad ideas work hand in hand with the devil to bring the whole planet down. Elsewhere, Something's Wrong/Lost Forever is dominated by stories of lost souls just trying to get by, a theme that's always timely but feels even more weighty right now. Biram sounds a bit less manic on these sessions than in his earlier work, but the grit and raw, plain-spoken emotional edge of his music hasn't changed much even if he's spending a bit more time with keyboards and acoustic instruments than a blown-out electric guitar on tunes like "Sinkin' Down," "Draggin' Down The Line" and the excellent " "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue." But don't get the notion that Biram has forsaken his wild side — "The Wishing Well" and "Hard Time" still crank it up loud and dirty, and he teams up with the Black Diamond Heavies on "I Feel So Good" to chase those bad vibes away. Scott H. Biram isn't trying to deliver a State Of The Union Address on Something's Wrong/Lost Forever, but he's sure made a record that resonates with the times; sometimes it's dark, sometimes it's edgy, but there's always soul, passion and life in it, and it comes straight from the heart of a man who sings and plays like his life depends on it each time he steps up to the microphone.

Customer Reviews

One Man Band? maybe.....

Scott H. Biram is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stuffy rooom. Buy it, or your soul will burn in hell. Unless you've already sold it, in which case, you might hear this anyway. Fans of raw, rockin, down home, dirty, front porch, back prorch, foot stompin, push your grandmother in the creek style music will appreciate this right away. Scott has done very well with the "one man band" approach for some time now, but its nice to hear a little bit of musical growth on this record. I would have given it five stars but to be honest, who wants to hear perfect music anyway?

Scott H. Biram is back.. as long as he doesn't break his leg again :)

First off, I am a huge fan of this man's music. I have everything he's ever released, except for 'Hospital Blues EP' but I'll get that soon. I guess I was expecting the raw outlaw energy of 'Graveyard Shift' and 'Dirty Old One Man Band' when i first listened to this. Maybe that's why i didn't like it very much. but after 2 or 3 listens i fell in love with it. because it is not either of those albums, it is it's own entity, which is what S.H.B. is, he's changing, growing, and it's evident when you listen to this CD. it is Brilliant and so is the Man behind it.

Must Buy !

If you're a Biram fan, go ahead and purchase this album. Scott adds many new additions to this record such as a haunting B3 organ as well as some extra percussion and nice lead guitar work. I haven't had a chance to see any of this material performed live, but from prior concerts, I can imagine these going over really well. Highlights for me would include "Judgement Day" & "Sinkin' Down". Hell, the whole damn album is good! Just stop reading and buy this record and support this hard working man!
