Customer Reviews

There is something for you in here.

iTunes is incorrect, this is not so much a country album as it is singer/songwriter with a dash of americana and a soupçon of folk. From beginning to the penultimate the album's 'Cash-esque', almost desperate mood flows seamlessly suggesting this to be a concept album. Mr Miller and his backing vocalists smooth harmonies are reminiscent of the Mamas and the Papas with a very tiny touch of the Carpenters. This album dances around the maw of the precious and saccharin, yet Mr Miller and company avoid falling into that seductively glossy trap.

Even with the predominance of traditional instruments, found sounds also work their way into a few of the songs, alluding to Mr. Miller's awareness of more modern music. This anachronism to this genre and Mr. Miller's obvious love for Coffee are the only hints that this album wasn't written in the sixties or seventies.

If you like the sounds of The Eagles, the Mamas and the Papas, CSN&Y, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Randy Newman, Nick Cave, and Tom Waits, if you like your music to feel like orange, brown and dust and twilight then this is an album you cannot ignore.

Personal Favorites: There is Nothing For You Here, I Want to Stay and Hopeful Lover's Song

The three reasons why I gave this four stars out of five...

1. Take Care of Yourself, Personally, I don't think this fits with the rest of the tracks.
2. Occasionally this album sounds a bit too slickly produced and veers towards a Musical Theatre quality. Which isn't necessarily bad in its own right but is a bit jarring when the atmosphere this album is trying to create is cracked with, "C'mon everybody, let's save the orphanage, barn, schoolhouse, (fill in the blank) and put on a show!"
3. I like my music a little rough around the edges. That being said – while this album is finely produced, the grit and emoting that could, or perhaps should, be effectively incorporated within this genre, is, in my mind, non-existant. Pity for me but again, it is personal taste.

I anxiously look forward to his Sophomore release with the hopes that he continues to experiment with the sounds, continues to use what works, eliminates what doesn't work, and continues to hone his lyric writing style. Mr Miller has the potential for longevity, as long as his music and words remain (a.) true to himself and (b.) prevalent and he steers clear from the ironic pulp that many new singer/songwriters consider to be de riguer of this difficult genre.

a sweet listen

I first saw Eric perform in Seattle a couple years back. He caught my ear instantly when I heard him sing his song 'There Is Nothing For You Here'. At the time he had a rough version on his site, which I quickly downloaded and learned how to play. It's a clever clever song and is my favorite; though Dear Darlin' is a serious contender. Long anticipated, this album, is such a sweet listen. Get it.

lightly dark and enjoyable

layers of instruments and melodies well married to the original concepts in the lyrics. lots of imagery.
