iTunes Review

Jackie Greene’s previous albums took a serious and tight approach to his songwriting, demanding comparisons to Bob Dylan as Greene turned in one chunky performance after another. With producer Tim Bluhm at the helm, Greene attempts to slick up his sound with back-up singers, thrilling organs and songs that put the hooks closer to the center. It’s an interesting direction. “Shaky Ground” throws together a Tom Petty-like crash and burn. “Stranger In Sand” could be Slow Train Coming-era Dylan. “Grindstone” adds a quickstep to its backbeat, while “A Moment of Temporary Color” takes the San Francisco beatnik in Greene and sends him into the heartland. “Spooky Tina” twists a rockabilly vibe towards an AOR presentation. “1961” and “The Holy Land” strip things back to Greene’s natural tone. “Take Me Back In Time” signals his true desires: he’d love to be a beatnik, a jazz player, an R&B shouter, a Greenwich Village folkie and sometimes he comes close. It’s that yearning to be brought in from the cold that makes him such an endearing musical figure. “Revolution Man” is a tough funky-blues bonus cut that provides the perfect big band sound. 

Customer Reviews

Where did Jackie Go?

I hate to say it but I become increasingly more disappointed with Jackie's major label releases. They seem more and more schizophrenic in nature whereas he had a solid and consistent identity on his locally produced works. Ever since
American Myth Jackie's work seems to lack the rootsy authenticity upon which he started his career. It's as if he traded in blues and simple good writing for self indulgent experimentation with only sporadic success. I could respect it more if the result was more profound but it ends up sounding like a mash-up of Beatles, J. Giles Band, Tom Petty, and countless flash-in-the-pan groups featured in iPhone commercials. I can only hope this is an issue of a big label screwing with and overproducing a natural talent that should be left to do his own thing. Jackie, get out of your contract and produce your own stuff!

Possibly his best yet

He's moved past all the early Dylan comparisons and crafted a real career breaker on this one - love the songs and the arrangements. Heard 'Shaky Ground' on the radio the other day and figured it was from a new album. Really well done - gonna wear this out.....

Bay Area Summer Rock!

Between this and the upcoming Oceanroyal album, I think my summer soundtrack has been written. Love seeing Bay Area artists like this continue to grow and shape their sound. This album is probably Jackie's most mature record to date -- great writing this time around (as always). Highlights are "Grindstone" "Medicine" and the title track. Overall, this is one of those albums you can put on without skipping a track. In a world of singles, that's hard to find these days.
