Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. In late 2010, Mead enlisted the financial support of his fans via Kickstarter to raise funds ($20,925) for a new album, Dudes. As the title implies, the songs are all written from the perspective of men. Recorded in nine days in NYC and produced by Ethan Eubanks and Mead (executive produced by Adam Schlesinger), it deepens Mead's songwriting with strains of Randy Newman-esque wry humor ('Bocce Ball') and sharp storytelling ('The Smile Of Rachael Ray').

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart, funny, real February 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Mead since his 2nd album, and later when his album "Indiana" came along, it totally blew my eyebrows off. So tuneful, insightful, delightful - just overall full. After that came a couple releases that were hit or miss for me, and when I saw that he had a new album out, I was dubious. I hesitated to get "Dudes," but once I did I was very happily surprised.

This is the caliber of work that I fell so in love with on "Indiana." It covers a lot of emotional ground - happy, regretful, frisky, naughty, awkward. There's so much love for humans and the universal human effort to be happy, even though it's often poorly thought-out and/or executed.

When I share these songs with friends, they immediately pick up on that love, and they now love David Mead, too. If you like delicious, smartly constructed pop songs with real human emotions, get this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album's concept isn't strong, but many of the tracks are September 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I’ve been listening to David Mead for years now, but this is the album that made me fully realize this guy wants to be Paul Simon. Maybe his previous cover of Simon’s “Only Living Boy in New York” should have been a giveaway, but his variety of songs and quirky lyrics really reminds me of Simon, although Mead never mines ethnic sources for musical variety the way Simon has. Nevertheless, the last song on the album in particular, “Knee-Jerk Reaction” stylistically sounds like something Simon would sing. “Dudes” doesn’t break any major new ground for Mead, but seems to put the pieces together better than on past efforts. This is a well-produced effort. I’m a couple years after the fact in hearing this album, but on repeated listens, it’s become my second favorite of his albums after only his first, “The Luxury of Time.” I like that “Dudes” has a stronger concentration of upbeat songs than previous albums and that he keeps his somewhat retro sound intact on those tracks. Speaking of retro, I find irony in the fact that the song “No One Roxx This Town No More,” has much more of a disco flavor than actual rock, but a song that references “government cheese” can’t be all bad. As a concept album, “Dudes,” which is supposedly about men and their relationships, is not very well defined or explained. A paragraph about it from Mead on the liner notes would have been nice, as would lyrics, which were provided on previous albums. Guess their omission was part of the budget approach here. It doesn’t really take away my appreciation of the music, but a concept as thin as “Dudes” could probably have applied to all of Mead’s albums. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop's most underrated vocalist & writer February 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another excellent release by David. Although 'Almost & Always' may be my favorite of his career from it's sheer simplicity and melodic brilliance, this turns up the energy slightly without losing the wry humor or clever observation. Can't miss with David, and this is a fine example of why. Get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius December 28, 2013
By C. Lyon
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
David Mead is a musical genius, and if you know his other albums it is mostly because of his lyrical sensibility. This one is different - a great concept with beautifully executed and very diverse songs. In addition to the usual beauty, it is also at times very real, raw, heavy, and playful.
