The imagery and characters and poignant.
Tom Compton
The stand out on the cd is "Annie and the Aztec Cross." A beautiful song about a friend dying of AIDS.
Mary Keever
Good enough to be anyone else's greatest hits.

Last Chance Lounge is AMAZING. Every song just seems to be better then the one before. "Broken Down Fence" has quickly become my favorite. Michael is an incredible song writer and storyteller and has worked his magic once again - this time only better. I have all of Michael's CD and this one will definitely stay in the CD player for a long time to come. Michael has outdone himself with LCL. I can't listen to this new CD enough and I have only had it for 3 days. I can't wait until I learn all of the words and then really start enjoying it. Definitely a must purchase for any music lover.

St. John of the Cross wrote about the dark night of the soul in the 16th century. He described it as an intense suffering of purification that God puts us through where hope seems very distant. I can't help but be reminded of the dark night of the soul in listening to Michael McDermott's Last Chance Lounge. McDermott paints vivid portraits of individuals at the ends of their ropes, searching for meaning and light inside the dark. From Annie communicating her impending death from AIDS in "Annie and the Aztec Cross" to a collection of wayward barflies strutting their quirks and insecurities before each other in "20 Miles South of Nowhere", Last Chance Lounge delivers the gamut of lost soul storylines. The album wastes no time in getting started with "Getting Off the Dime" a driving number that grips the listener from the outset. A darkly comical "Unemployed" tells the story of a "pauer with a prince's taste" who bemoans his situation while letting us in on his ruse. "Murder on Her Lips" evokes the mood of a tender ballad and turns a twist to it all as we discover a fierce vengence inside the "quater girl". "Leave Her to Heaven" depicts the loneliness of coming to grips with loss and "Thinkin' About You" presents a man haunted by lingering regrets from a violent relationship. From top to bottom this album is strong. The imagery and characters and poignant. McDermott has a genuine gift for presenting the listener with the lives of suffering characters, their choices, their hopes, their regrets, and all the while witholding any kind of judgement.Read more ›

"Last Chance Lounge" is THE best cd of the year. Hands down. If you haven't discovered Michael McDermott yet...what are you waiting for? He recently signed with Koch Records. LCL is a mix of songs from the previous "Bourbon Blue" and new material. From the moment the harmonica kicks in on the opening of "Getting off the Dime" you are hooked. "Unemployed" could be the new anthem of the 00s. "Hallelujah, I'm overjoyed, drunk again and I'm unemployed." "Murder on her lips" still makes me cry. The stand out on the cd is "Annie and the Aztec Cross." A beautiful song about a friend dying of AIDS. If this song doesn't touch you, you aren't alive. Michael is a poet. He has such a visual way of writing. Sheer poetry. My meager words don't do the cd justice. Buy it. Love it. Live it. Peace.

I have been a Michael McDermott fan since I first heard his self-titled album a few years back. His music and lyrical brilliance took me to a place that music had long denied me. With the release of "Last Chance Lounge", I have again returned to that place of content and excitement. Again lyrically superb, the music also takes on a new toll with great improvement and crystal clear production. "Unemployed","Getting Off The Dime", and "Spark" are upper-tempo standouts, while "Thinking about You" is perhaps the most sincere and honest song Ive ever heard.

... that hasn't already been said? The man is a poet, a genius, an amazing songwriter, musician, lyricist. He writes stories about people he knows and people he envisions, and within their struggles we see reflections of ourselves. From "Annie"'s heartbreaking strings and imagery to "Bourbon Blue"'s magical swirling sound (thanks Mary!) to the rocking redemption of "Getting Off the Dime", this album is worth every penny you pay for it ... Visit Michael's website at [...] for more information -- I'm a writer, and no words can do this album or artist justice.
