Album Review

Singer and songwriter Marc Broussard's self-titled fourth album — and his second for Atlantic — moves away from his back-to-basics approach with 2008's Keep Coming Back. He and Atlantic decided to up the ante commercially here. They enlisted producer Jamie Kenney (who co-wrote and arranged the album's songs, played keyboards, and basically ran things; he is primarily known as a Contemporary Christian music producer). He understood (as did Broussard) the label's plan to launch its artist as a pop crossover talent. The album's first single, the pre-release "Only Everything," with its 21st century clash of programmed synthesizers and loops, compressed drums, and ghostly traces of old-school soul, did very well at Hot AC stations across the country. It's also indicative of the way the entire album sounds.

I like it.....

I've been following Marc for awhile...he actually opened up for my band years ago on a duel bill with Maroon 5. I'm not even a huge fan....my wife is the one who really likes his tunes....but I felt compelled to write a comment/review after reading some folks really coming down on him for releasing this album because it wasn't a carbon copy of Caraceno. Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion and it's fine to dislike what he did on this album. I'm a musician in the trenches of Atlanta, playing covers most night's of the week to pay my bills and support my family. I am about to release my 5th original music album (3rd solo) and I DON'T have a major label deal. Just want you to know that I live what I'm saying here. Marc(as well as countless musicians) has been in the trenches, he's paid his dues, and he is actually talented....which is not as common these days.

Folks....artist evolve not just in their musical career, but their families evolve, personal demons, relationships, etc. JUST LIKE YOU DO. So maybe he wasn't feeling like singing Home 10 tracks in a row. Maybe things in his life have changed. I'm just saying, if I had a choice to sign a deal that supported my family and/or my career.....I'd do it in a heartbeat and I'd say "how high do you want me to jump?" Folks, almost every major label artist at some point or another has to "do what they are told" to make music that some suit thinks is a hit. So, bottom line is he hasn't sold out, but will probably be "selling out" more venues as a result of this record. It is mainstream and more focused. That is what he has lacked on his other releases in my opinion. I think this album will give him an opportunity to reach more fans who will then reach back to his early releases as they look for more material from him. Then when he has more creative control OR he feels like singing "Home" again.....he can do that on the second album.

Think of this....was Lebron James a "sell out" because we went to the NBA out of high school? Should Chipper Jones have stayed in the minor league because he was such a great baseball player that going to the major league would change his swing or fielding technique? Should Steve jobs have called it quits after the first ipod took off? No, they took the opportunity to share their skill/talent with the rest of the world. What would you do?

I didn't plan on writing a rant today, just some of the negative comments hit me in a personal way...Like not going to his show because of this new album....must not have been a really good fan to begin with. Give it a chance it might grow on you....at least give him some credit for a major label release...99.9 percent of musicians never get that chance and you can't imagine the pressure of having to write a hit song. that's all....hope this made since and if not....oh well, it made me feel better.

Wow

Sincerely disappointed... this sounds nothing like the thoughtful, soulful, energetic sound he used to have.

No "complete my album"?

I purchased the "Marc Broussard - EP" earlier this year and his website stated that that purchase allowed me to "Complete my album" once this album is released but apparently iTunes doesn't recognize the credits from my earlier purchase. Is there something I missed?

Biography

Born: January 14, 1982 in Carencro, LA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The son of Boogie Kings guitarist (and Louisiana Hall of Fame member) Ted Broussard, singer/songwriter Marc Broussard was seemingly destined for a life as a music man. His upbringing in Lafayette, Louisiana, instilled in him an affinity for R&B alongside the Cajun trappings of southern Louisiana. Drawing vocal and stylistic influence from Otis Redding and Brian McKnight while bearing the preternaturally gruff vocals of John Hiatt and Dr. John, Broussard was barely 20 at the time of his first...
