Album Review

The Brought Low are a rough midpoint between the Black Crowes' unabashed Faces worship and the ironic retro-glam posturing of the Darkness: Right on Time is the sound of a band that's deliberately re-creating a long-past time and place, but this dose of '70s heavy rock sounds entirely sincere. The Brought Low's obvious influences include Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, the James Gang, and Bad Company: the album even ends with a churchy R&B-influenced rave-up called "There's a Light" powered by a Gregg Allman-style organ part. It's hard not to think of the Rutles, Neil Innes' note-perfect re-creation of the Beatles' sound and spirit, or of the plethora of new bands since the turn of the millennium whose sole raison d'être is to pay tribute to the post-punk era, but this quartet led by singer/guitarist Benjamin Howard Smith — a fine blue-collar Rock Dude name — are so palpably sincere on tracks like "A Better Life" and "Vernon Jackson" (a tribute to the rough and tumble section of Queens that the band calls home) that it's impossible to dismiss Right on Time as a calculated pose.

Customer Reviews


If you like hard rock of any kind, especially 70's stuff, you will dig this band. If you think Wolfmother rocks, download both of these records, scratch your head for a second and ask yourself why The Brought Low isn't a household name. Just download the first track "A Better Life" and see for yourself...These dudes have got it going on. While the Generation Y kid bands are busy whining, downtuning their guitars, getting tribal tatoos and applying their second layer of eyeshadow, these dudes were busy making a REAL rock record. All the musicians are solid, the riffs, the mix, the guitar tone, yeah, classic Marshall tone... These guys are not overly heavy when compared to todays metal bands but a lot of these tracks pack enough punch to get you driving 80 in a 35.. And the stuff that's not heavy...its got soul...SOUL, something that's missing from most reocords thsese days....

This is one of the best bands ive ever heard

why arent they famous yet, on this CD buy "A Better Life", and "Vernon Jackson", the other CD is Better. On the other CD buy My favorite "City Boy", and also buy "Outer Borough dust run", "What i found", and "God Dmn God Bless". if you listen to all those songs you would agree that those are the best ones. P.S. This is one of the best bands ive ever heard!

Right On Time....Worth The Wait!

After a nearly Five year wait from their awesome debut album in October 2001, "Right On Time" Is finally here and worth the long wait. Superbly written and produced, there is really not a weak track in the bunch, like the S/T debut, The Brought Low stay with what works: 70's tinged Southern Hard Rock, timeless music really. My Favorites: "A Better Life", "Hail Mary", "Vernon Jackson", "Blues For Cubby", and the very best song they ever recorded: "There's A Light". Too Bad no one really knows about them, they should be on the radio, oh well - just download the whole album, you'll love it.


Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Brooklyn, New York's the Brought Low formed in 1999 and originally featured singer/guitarist Benjamin Howard Smith, bassist Dean Rispler, and drummer Nick Heller. The trio made its recorded debut in 2001 with a self-titled album (released by Tee Pee Records) that boasted a vintage style of '70s hard rock rich in both American and British inspiration; the Brought Low then parted company with Rispler and welcomed new bass player Robert Russell in 2003. Another three years would pass, however, before...
