Album Review

Lonelyland is an entertaining, occasionally impressive effort that bodes well for singer/songwriter Bob Schneider's future. The LP kicks off with "Metal and Steel," an acoustic number that is vaguely reminiscent of Paul Simon at his most Dylan-esque. Before the album is done, however, musical styles will twist and turn along the way, reminding one at times of everyone from Lenny Kravitz ("Jingy") to Bill Withers ("Bullets") to Elvis Costello-meets-Hootie & the Blowfish ("Better"). Schneider's lyrics speak of broken relationships, angst, and drug abuse, though there are hints of humor and happiness that shine through from time to time. Some of his imagery is awkward — "Jingy" is about a metaphorical monkey on one's back, but the monkey sounds more like it's of the circus variety. Schneider needs to tame the occasional tendency to be too cute for his own good, both with his words and stylistically eclectic music. Apart from that flaw, the album is a pleasant, listenable set of adult alternative music.

Customer Reviews

wow!

the thing is, you really need to buy this album. its one of those where every song is amazing! bob is so unique in that he can pull of so many different generes; this album has mellow jazzy songs, lots of rock, alternative and everything in between. Big Blue Sea is one of my all time favorite songs, as is Metal nd Steel- also adore Tokyo, Round adn Round, and 2002.

One of those albums you just can't stop playing...

This is a great ALBUM, not just an album with some good songs. Bob is a great song writer who really explores the depth of his being. Each song is fresh. I cannot recommend this album enough. Give it a shot. You'll be happy you did.

To good to not own

I'm a huge Bob Schneider fan, and in my opinion this is his best CD yet. Every song on this CD is great. And if you ever get the chance to see Bob Schneider play live, especially in Austin, do not miss the opportunity. It's one of the best live shows I have ever seen. His CD's are great, but the music is magic in person.
