iTunes Review

Recorded in just four days with a small core of session musicians, with the bulk of the instruments and vocals cut live, Little Moon motors along with a free swinging energy and a natural polish that only seasoned professionals can accomplish without a retouch. ”Seal It With a Kiss” has a soulful groove that matches Phillips’ sophisticated croon. He’s no longer the loud and volatile alt-rocker of his youth, but rather a skilled songwriter with a love for classic forms. Dixieland horns flesh out “It Ain’t the Same Old Cold War Harry,” strings underline “Blind Tom,” while a piano gently steadies the haunting ballads, “Nightbirds” and his welcome home to his baby girl, “Violet.” Fatherhood has made Phillips a happy man. From the opening swing of the un-ironic “Good Morning Happiness,” he walks and sings with an extra skip in his step. “Oh baby, don’t you know we’ve all got hidden treasure?” he sings at the beginning of the upbeat “Buried Treasure.” Even the slow piano creep of “Older Now” immerses itself in the richness of life experience.

Customer Reviews

Patience wearing thin...

Let me start by saying I love this guy's stuff, well his older stuff anyway. It's hard to escape the feeling that Phillips is caught in a civil war between his creative genius and his sense of commercial reality and I've heard enough songs about catfish or wistful lasses to last me a lifetime. There is no Mighty Joe Moon, Crooked Dice or Lonestar Song equivalents on here, and that's a shame because this guy can turn a tune that never gets old. I guess I will just wait for the next album, in hope.

Great album by Grant Lee Phillips!

This is a great album, hands down. It's a "feel good" and lighthearted collection of songs with some subtle emotional tracks thrown in for good measure. It is probably one of the most "radio friendly" albums Grant has ever done besides "Virginia Creeper".

For those of you wanting another Grant Lee Buffalo album, it's high time you get over it. You have had over 10 years to cope... it's time to move on! Grant Lee Buffalo was an amazing band, but no one can really argue that it wasn't primarily due to Grant Lee Phillips voice, songwriting and charisma. Well guess what, those characteristics transcend genre and style. Don't get me wrong, if Grant ever put a rock band together again and cranked up his acoustic guitar distortion and howling vocals I would be first in line for the album/concert, or whatever. But, if you are a fan of Grant, you gotta open your mind and appreciate the different chapters he has gone through and is still going through as a musician and songwriter.

Grant is still Grant and his amazing voice and clever songwriting really shine through on this album. The band he put together compliments the songs well. I especially enjoy the string and piano arrangements. I hope he can pull together some sort of group for his tour, because I really think these arrangements would translate well to a live performance. However, even if it's just Grant and his guitar, if you have seen him live before you know it is worth it. Grant's charisma always shines through in his performances. Every time I've seen him live I feel like I am hearing/watching him perform like it's the last show he'll ever do. Plus there is always the stand-up comedy he throws in there as an added bonus.

Buy this album. Pop it in the 'ol CD player if you are old school or get it on your ipod. Sit out on a porch somewhere. Kick back with some hard lemonade and enjoy another chapter in the career of a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter.

I don't know

I really WANT to like his solo stuff, but I think the old GLB stuff spoiled me. It was just SO good back then. I'll listen again and try to be fair.
