Album Review

On Semi-Crazy, Junior Brown's third full-length album, the suit-and-tied Texas singer's clever lyrics, Ernest Tubb-like voice, and virtuoso guitar playing (on his custom-made, double-necked "guit-steel," which allows him to switch quickly between picking and steel playing) are once again intact and on the mark. Semi-Crazy may not bowl Brown fans over immediately — he offers no new twists as either a writer or player. On the other hand, because Brown is one of country music's most stunning guitarists (imagine Ornette Coleman crossed with Speedy West) — not to mention possessing a truly original sound — it's hard not to fall for the classic Brown sound of "I Hung It Up" (a standout for the guitar work), "Gotta Get Up Every Morning," and the fun-loving title track (his duet partner, Red Simpson, penned Brown's earlier song "Highway Patrol").

Semi Crazy

Thanks for making this album available! A great album from beginning to end. It has humorous songs-Gotta Get Up,.., a couple of tunes that remind me of 60's Ray Price-I Want to Hear It,.., and some neat surprises like Hong Kong Blues and Surf Medley.

A Good Listen!

Found this music by accident when I bought an MP3 player, listened to it a few times while painting my daughter's room, and the more I listened, the more I liked. This may not be everyone's favorite style of music, but anyone can find something to like here.
