Album Review

With his angsty, heartbreaking arrangements, Kevin Devine is frequently described as a cross between Dashboard Confessional and Bright Eyes. On opener "Ballgame" he even acknowledges the stigma that could be attached to him: "And I know the kid with his guitar, so drunk and anxious, has been done to death/So tell me what hasn't, I'll try it." However, his second solo record (which comes just months after the release of his band's Every Famous Last Word) deserves a proper examination. Devine sounds nearly as tortured as he did on Circle Gets the Square, but he also finds comfort and appreciation during moments like the lovely "Splitting Up Christmas," where he expresses gratitude to his friends and family. The excellent "Longer That I'm Out Here" is one of a few selections with a full band, yet keeps a distance from the poppy punk of the Miracle of 86. Tender closing track "Thanks" appears bright with a glistening glockenspiel, but Devine leaves listeners with the emo-fueled words of "When you get here it's so nice, it's just the part where you leave I don't like." If only he could turn back the clock.

A Truly Great Album

I've probably listened to this album begining to end at least 20 times now and it's excellent. Kevin is musicly talented and his lyrics are some of the best in the game. I hope we'll see him out West soon.

Kevin Devine IS Devine

vocals= amazing lyrics = spectacular instramentals=unlike anything Kevin Devine is a truly talented man among so many who claim to be talented, but all they have behind them is a record label pushing their album and making them write and play things that the singer/songwriters do not like. Kevin Devine knows what hes singing about, he feels it as he sings every verse and every word, thats what makes him so great. This album is a must buy for anyone who wants to know what music with raw emotion should really sound like. as far as his tour, he is currently touring with Brand New (another very recomendable band) and I am very much looking forward to his concert in Oregon (tonight) =]

That's the ballgame.

Singer/songwriter from Brooklyn, NY. Devine has a way with driving his words and music home. If you're into Elliott Smith, you should love Devine. Listen to "Ballgame". It'll make you want to pour a round of drinks & discuss life away.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Singer and songwriter Kevin Devine has won a loyal following in indie rock and emo circles for his emotionally urgent songs of love, life, and politics. Devine was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 19, 1979. After graduating from high school, he enrolled at Fordham University to study journalism, but in 1999 his priorities turned to music; he began performing solo at coffeehouses and open-mike nights, and soon he and Chris McAllen, a friend since high school, formed the emo band Miracle of '86...
