I don't know who mentioned Mason to me, but I'm glad they did. Mason has easy guitar sequences, a nice easy pace, a lazy yawning voice, and lovely little lyrics that are perfect for a Sunday afternoon at the pool or the beach or laying around the house. He's creative w/his observations, but not overly complex. He really knows how to work the acoustic guitar to his advantage. The only problem I had was that I wanted more...his songs were short and left me all in a tizzy about missing California and wishing for the simple life...but that's why you'll go out and buy Birds Flying Away and Century Spring right afterwards. However, the first attempt is usually the best, and I'd have to agree that if you're looking for some acoustic ear candy w/deadpan brilliance to be compared to Beck in his early days, you'll dig this CD. Lucky Minnesota to have Mason running around their bars!

Based on the above reviews and some sound snipits I listened to, I got Mason Jennings' first CD, self-titled, and his most recent release, "Use Your Voice." I listen to a lot of music, with an inclination for singer-songswriters and folk rock, and it's wonderful to unexpectedly discover someone this good who has so much music out already. It's unbelievable, and frankly unjust, that he isn't better known. I like the two CDs so much that I limit the amount of time I allow myself to listen to to them - I don't want them to get old! There's something so raw and real about Mason Jennings that these reordings make me think of the crackling old field recordings done by Alan Lomax of blues singers down in Mississippi: simple, stark, strikingly fresh and personal ... undiluted, uncontrived. Okay, I've run out of adjectives! Anyone who laments the quality of contemporary music (as I have) may want to reconsider their opinion. Where are the Dylans of today? Mason Jennings may provide you the answer.

The reason I ended up here was because I saw Mason live twice between 1998 and 2000. I bought this self-titled CD at the first show, and then some jerk stole my collection recently. I have to buy back Mason Jennings - the only CD from the bunch that I've truly missed. If you ever get to see Mason live, do it!

This debut album from Mason Jennings is a stunning introduction to this very promising songwriter. Heartfelt, poignant and utterly original, Mason Jennings displays a potential of equal depth and emotion to that of Neil Young, Bob Dylan or Elliott Smith.

Mason Jennings has created one fantastic and laid back album here. Hearing songs like "California" actually make you want to be there. "Stars Shine Quietly" followed by "Darkness Between the Firflies" beautifully wind down the album that as the after the crescendo of brilliance that preceded those two. I think this album fits for anyone who enjoys the occassional slow song. Something this good is hard to come by these days.

This album blew me away, and I'm not easily blown away. I've read other reviews that put Jack Johnson in the same sentance with Mason, why? Mason is miles better than Johnson. This album is one of the greatest, but hidden, albums of the 90's. He sings like Dylan, has the soul of David Gray, plays like Neil Young and combine all this with his own style of play and you have quite possibly the greatest singer/songwriter since the era of Young and Dylan. I am not exaggerating, he is that good.

Mason Jennings is one of those off the mainstream, underrated musician, who gives his audience nothing but great music.
Amazing and sobering album, but only 4 stars because he's even better live!

I like this album. I think it/s better than or as good as Jack Johnson, but I really don/t listen to Jack Johnson anymore. I probably won/t again either. Even though the two go together pretty well, there/s seems to be something better here with Mason Jennings. I like his voice, and I like what he sings about. I like how he plays. I like that it/s not ALL the same on one album. I don/t think this album is life-changing for me, and I don/t think I/d listen to it all the time, but for being an album I just started listening to that I didn/t get bored with right away, it means something to me.
