Album Review

Michael Penn's debut album, March, released in late 1989, served notice there was another talented Penn brother, in addition to actors Sean and Chris. The album kicks off with one of the top singles of the winter of 1989-1990, "No Myth," and proceeds through an engrossing myriad of folk-tinged ballads and up-tempo rockers. Despite several literary allusions and the ponderous title and lyrics of "Cupid's Got a Brand New Gun," on the whole, Penn doesn't take himself too seriously. "Brave New World" is an absurd Dylan-esque hodgepodge of rhyme, and "Big House" is devoted to the childhood prank of ringing doorbells, then running. The coda is "Evenfall," maybe the best '60s frat rock song since the '60s, with a horn section that makes you want to dance until the campus police close down the party. [A 2001 version combined No Myth's program with tracks from Free-for-All.]

Customer Reviews

all good!

The whole album from start to finish is wonderful! Got it when it first came out and still listen to it. : )

Love this album!

I loved this album back when it came out. You can totally play it from start to finish & all the songs are wonderful. So happy to find it again because it's just as relevant. Wonderful music as well as, a wonderful rich voice! Can't go wrong.

Perfect from beginning to the end!

One of the most underrated artists and albums of the 80's! Michael Penn shows us some great songwriting and production, and still manages to not be tied to one single boring musical style. I've listened to this album hundreds of times and still manage to find something new about it I love. I would list all songs I think are best, but honestly the album in total is a masterpiece. So do yourself a favor, stop reading this review and buy this album now!!
