Editors’ Notes

On the chorus of the opening song Mason Jennings croons “City of ghosts!” sounding nearly identical to the part of the Doors’ “L.A. Woman” where Jim Morrison sings, “City at night!.” Blood of Man is an inspired affair contrasted by a warm and tastefully muted production, and while that aforementioned bit does indeed channel Morrison, “City of Ghosts” is a more interesting number replete with squealing guitar feedback and a hypnotic tambourine. It's Jennings’ eighth studio long-player, but it’s his first electric album. He played every instrument here and the recording sounds refreshingly edgy. In “Pittsburgh” Jennings inflects with a Ric Ocasek aloofness but he still recalls Lou Reed when he lackadaisically sings about the summer that his buddy’s girl OD’d. “Ain’t No Friend of Mine” flirts with sludgy, stoner-rock riffs and bonus track “Waves” is a surfer’s hymn that sounds like Dennis Wilson backed by an early-‘90s indie-rock band.

Customer Reviews

What can we say?

So many of Mason Jennings' lyrics remind me of things I have thought about but could never put into words. Is he some kind of preachy modern-day false prophet? Nope, he's just another one of us humans- but his music resonates because he so clearly embraces the mystery of life on every track. This album (in keeping with the previous 7-8) presents the listener with something powerful. That is not a common thing in popular music these days. Thank You Mr. Jennings- for keeping it real, providing some of the most insightful and awesome-sounding tracks of ANY generation, and reminding us all that we all share so many of the same experiences (just in our own little way) and that that we never walk alone.

Best Yet

Mason's best, purest, most true record to date. This record is the new "Use Your Voice".... i.e. the pinnacle of his music so far. Blood of Man is simply amazing, and with more social commentary teeth than any of his previous work.

AMAZING !!!

I saw him in concert a few months ago and he played some of his new songs and i had high hopes for his new album. he definitely met all of them. pretty sure mason jennings can do no wrong.
