5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, even if it takes a listen or two.... May 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I saw Justin Bond for the first time around Christmas this year, and was blown away. A few months later, Justin was playing again a few blocks from my apartment. I didn't know it was the CD release party (which was an amazing show!), but was really excited to see this for sale. When I first listened to it at home, I felt that it didn't have the same power as live. And, there was an amazing song from the show that I desperately hoped was on it. Nonetheless, I listened to it again.... and again.... and again.... and LOVE it.

Is it as good as a show? No. But, I'm not sure that it would be possible to ever bring the power of the shows into CD format. And, despite the initial disappointment that evening, this earns a rare 5 stars in my book.

5.0 out of 5 stars V for va va voom, X for excellent November 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Justin Bond's voice rasping and wrapping itself around some choice show tunes and ballads as Kiki, the bitter and hilarious chanteuse lounge act, one half of Kiki and Herb. Kiki could also thump you in the chest with a ballad such as Stevie Nicks's Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You? In other words, she could affect you emotionally, and first time around you never expected that. Here on Dendrophile is confirmation that voice, deep and delicious like a cello, has grown, full-bodied and subtle, long after the character of Kiki has been shed, her heels put away. Bond - who prefers the gender-neutral pronoun V - has evolved as an artist, is writing V's own songs, and selecting other material that seems written with Bond in mind. It's hard to go past The End, so to speak, originally performed by Bond in the John Cameron Mitchell film Shortbus, but there are other songs I keep returning to, such as Genet Song and Golden Age of Hustlers. At the risk of sounding like an acolyte, I'm very taken by V's first book, Tango, too, which tells funny, sad, vivid stories of V's childhood; it's as whimsical and subtly affecting as a good David Sedaris collection. More, please.Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels ...

5.0 out of 5 stars dendrophile May 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree", but this album by Justin Bond is serious poetry and serious music - maybe not easy listening for some at first. Bond's own material is beautiful and possibly groundbreaking. I find myself particularly enthralled with his interpretations of some other music. His covers have turned me on to songs I just never got in to before. This is serious art, with some serious messages and beautiful music by Justin Bond and some wonderful musicians. The photos on the CD cover are a nice touch - especially the bottle of Four Roses in what my wife said would be called a "table arrangement".
