Editorial Reviews

If Michael Penn sometimes can't seem to decide which of his musical talents (singer-songwriter, musician-arranger, perspective-minded producer) to focus on, it's a dilemma that's produced a compelling slice-of-résumé here. And though his pop sensibility is sometimes reminiscent of Matthew Sweet and other history-conscious peers, there's a reserve to Penn's productions that subtly underscores lyrics as sharp of tongue as they are of eye. Typically bleak, if playfully so ("I got loaded in a hearse when all I needed was a nurse," he observes on "Lucky One"), the singer can't help but lay the truth on you even while he's busy concocting just the right musical cocktail to help wash it down. This is Penn's sometimes bleak world-view, be it personal or objective, set to dry productions that can still somehow recall Spector one instant, mournful Delta blues the next, crucially without being slave to either. Cheer up, Penn seems to be advising here, the news may be bad, but the music doesn't have to be. -Jerry McCulley

I do have to start by saying that I'm a longtime Michael Penn fan, just so you readers will know my biases right up front.

Penn is a terrific pop singer songwriter and one that deserves radio play!

Michael Penn has been creating brilliant pop music for a decade now (albeit one that included a 5 year sabbatical), and his new release does not disappoint. Like all Michael Penn albums, it takes a couple listens to really absorb (his music has never been restricted to the transient fashions of time)--but it is all the more rewarding for it.
MP4 is more comparable to the relatively challenging "psychedelic folk" of Free-for-All, which followed the relatively straightforward pop of March--just as this release follows the accessible Resigned. But the melodies still stick in your head--"Lucky One" and "High Time" are destined to become classics; although nothing stands out like "All That That Implies" or "Bedlam Boys," there's plenty of "Free Time" and "Strange Season" to admire. Still catchy and addictive and ingenious and intelligent.
Why can't we hear stuff like this on the radio? Maybe this album will get enough recognition to bring March and Free-for-All back in print, so everyone can appreciate the full spectrum of Penn's genius. As it is, this is a worthy addition to his canon, and I can't wait for the next one!

Please excuse my hyperbole! Sometimes we are swayed by our first exposure to an artist, and perhaps I'm fortunate to have heard all 4 of M. Penn's albums on the same day, one after the other, and cannot share the sentiments of long time fans who seem disheartened by their favorite artists latest disappointing album.
Put all of those comments aside and buy this one. Penn is a terrific pop singer songwriter and one that deserves radio play! My initial favorite of his 4 albums was Resigned (produced by the terrific Brendan O'Brien), and my least favorite was his first (March - with apologies to his longtime fans), but the more I listened to MP4, the more I'm convinced this is his best, by a wide margin. 10 songs -- 6 or 7 classics (with Lucky One, Whole Truth, High Time, Beautiful and Perfect Candidate coming immediately to mind). Great lyrics, catchy harmonies, terrific guitar work, outstanding support from Patrick Warren and Victor Indrizzo, and a nod to Brendan on Lucky One (how come he didn't produce the whole album?)
Please, Michael, don't make us wait 4 more years for the next CD!

Michael Penn has been suffering from the one-hit wonder stigma ever since his 1990 hit "No Myth" failed to yield a follow-up. But like other fine, talented songwriters who rely more on critical acclaim than Top 40 hits (Marshall Crenshaw, Richard Thompson), Michael keeps putting out consistently great albums, albeit few and far between.
I actually picked up "MP4" for free (it was a promo copy from the music store where I work), but I'm glad I did. The songs are wonderful, and the production lush and intimate. My favorite song so far is "Lucky One," but I'm sure I'll love the whole disc soon enough. Michael is a terrific songwriter and "MP4" is a great album.

This is a terrific collection of songs from a great songwriter. A bit poppier than "Resigned", but much more straight-ahead, with much of the overproduction of Penn's first two cd's winnowed away. Penn's recent appearance in Philly with Aimee Mann was really good, and if you get a chance to see these two, you won't be disappointed. Highlights are "Lucky One," "Whole Truth," "Trampoline,"...it's just a great record. One thing I took away from seeing Penn live,as well as his cd's, is how great a guitarist this guy is. His acoustic playing is exemplary, but what really sets him apart is the ability to play short, biting electric leads that not only are totally unembarrasing, but actually add to the melodic translation of the song. Amazing. If instantly memorable, well written Beatlesque pop songs are your cup of tea, this is for you.

Glad to see the venerable Mr. Penn, arguably the most talented American solo act in the last 11 years, didn't wait five years to release his first effort since 1997, like he did between the dark, deep "Free for All" and the simply amazing "Resigned."
MP4 harks back to the days of 'No Myth' and other songs from his debut album, 1989's "March" (one of my first CDs, acquired back when it orig. came out!), but with much tighter production values and a host of new instrumental additions, (and I think he nixed the drum machine on this one, too). Mike is much more positive in his writing here, and the tempo is noticeably more upbeat in many tracks. With back up vocals from wife Aimee Mann and Grant Lee Buffalo (both amazing vocalists in their own right), there are some truly outstanding sonic highlights on this album.
One complaint, the instruments seem to take center stage on MP4, giving Penn's distinctive voice, and, as a result, poignant lyrics, a back seat in many instances.
Overall this is a very solid effort that fills the 'upbeat' gap some might find in MP's catalogue. Get it, b/c it certainly will fill the "great american musician & lyricist" gap you may have in your collection.
Caveat: his *best* lyrical and musical gold can be found in his sweeping and more introspective songs, like "Coal" & "Slipping My Mind" on FFA and "Figment" & "Out of My Hands" on Resigned.
Enjoy! And Mike: Thanks!
