Haunting, dark, gorgeous and somewhat less twangy than his last two records. A progression from previous efforts, but in a good way. I'm a massive fan of Bondy's last two albums, and I'm really digging this one, too. Fans of WHEN THE DEVIL'S LOOSE and AMERICAN HEARTS won't be disappointed. Can't wait to see him perform these songs live. Get this record today; AA Bondy is good for you.

I've never written an amazon review about anything before, but I can't help myself from spreading the word about A.A. Bondy! I was lucky enough, recently, to experience the majesty of A.A. Bondy in concert and man oh man, I can't believe it took me this long to get on the Bondy train! His lyrics are so beautiful, so poetic, and so cryptic. His songs are the type of catharsis that are manifested once in a blue moon by musicians as a single stand-out song among the dozens and dozens of fillers. They are the kind of songs any other artist would have trouble getting through performing. But what was so intriguing and so sad to me was just how much reservation he was exercising to keep a placid, stoic veneer. He has such a beautiful and unique voice, so soothing and velvety. Yet, it was as if he felt undeserving of his gift so all he could do was be this neutral vessel to allow his deeply somber songs to pour out of. I'm probably reading way too much into it lol, but if I want to romanticize an artist's work to appreciate it more so be it. But I dunno, I can't explain it. It was just so sad- like he wouldn't allow himself to connect because deep down, he's one thread away from breaking. At times, a hint of surrender was audible in his voice which was so satisfying to hear and witness. I'm a sucker for ballads and lyrical depth, so I'm always seeking out the latest soul-stirring stuff but I don't think I've ever come across such tragically beautiful lyrics from a single artist in my life!

I immediately got his latest album as well as the one prior (When the Devil's Loose) and I can't shake the
overwhelming urge to share his stuff because it's soooooooo damn good!!!!! Believers is sheer perfection from start to finish. There isn't a single track I'd skip.

I love this album! The first two AA albums were also great, but I think this is the best one yet.
So much character and flow, I love the distinct guitar endings to all the songs.
Favorite songs: Surfer King, The Twist, and Down in the Fire

WOW!

I've been waiting for this third solo album from Mr. Bondy for a while now & I've been streaming it on NPR for the last week.

The songwriting is impeccable, second to no one. The dark, haunting lyrics, vocals and melodies are a great highway companion late at night when you're surrounded by yourself and you've nothing but time on your hands to contemplate life.

Buy this entire album and his other two as well. You won't regret it.

Skull & Bones, Hiway/Fevers - Great!

Already awaiting your forth, Scott.

I heard the title cut, "Rte 28/Believers," on XM while driving one night and wrote down A.A. Bondy's name as soon as I parked. I'd never heard of him before. This CD is much more than just that one song that got airplay. It's a complete collection, each cut reflecting and resonating with each other like a finely paced book of poems. The songs are mostly slow-ish and dream-like, but the music has subtle power and creates a charged atmosphere. This is perfect music for driving dark highways or sipping Scotch late at night.

First of all, I'm upset that this is the last album that Bondy has made, because I love his work and it's been 4 years since he's put out any new stuff. Bondy is one of the most underrated artist of the last 20 years. His sound is deceptively complex, and nowhere is that more so than here: it's like folk meets Pink Floyd. All three of his albums are so different from one another and each is wonderful, though this is the most creative in regards to sound work done in the studio.

I was a huge Verbena fan, but I'm embarrassed to admit I totally slept on his solo stuff - until now. Like other reviewers here are saying, this album is stellar. Yeah, haunting and all that, but there's more to it. It kinda sounds timeless. This album could have been recorded at any time in the last 50 years. (I swear I hear some early 70's Pink Floyd in that long track towards the end). He's using sounds and instruments that color the music so richly, so deeply, that the songs sound a lot more substantial than they really are. Underneath that molten accompaniment are these simple, tattered melodies that spill out. Now, starting to dig into his others.

I can't say enough about A.A. Bondy or this album (or any of his other albums). I just got into him a few months ago and can't stop listening. I play Believers when I'm writing. Over and over again. And I haven't gotten tired of it yet. Poetry. They lyrics are chock-full of it whether you realize it or not. Gorgeous stuff. Murder boys. Saints there on a chain. These idiot hearts. We're out here listening, A.A. And what you are doing is making our lives better. I hope you know that.
