Editorial Reviews

Having gained recognition after a song he wrote ended up on Beyonce's latest album, Hugo was contacted by Roc Nation to be part of the newly formed label. As a tip of the hat to Roc Nation's founder, Hugo put a country-fried twist on the classic "99 Problems" discovering an unforeseen link between pop, rock and hip-hop.

Following the buzz-worthy success of "99 Problems," in which both the song and Hugo were featured in the box-office hit No Strings Attached starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman, the album is a refreshing and brilliant blend of rock, pop and soul with hip-hop influences. With Old Tyme Religion, Hugo introduces a new audience to multiple international influences, style and true soul through well-crafted lyrics and contemporary music.

"I'm trying to make rock & roll in the age of hip-hop," Hugo affirms. "A complete thought in 3 minutes and 30 seconds, that's the challenge. A song is a planet with gravity and atmosphere and things living in it. An album is a solar system. All songs on this album are about two things; love and fear."

First and foremost the lyrics on this album blow. me. away. This album has it all -- rock, pop, soul a dash of international flavor -- all the influences mesh together brilliantly...and originally. I think the best compliment I can pay is there isn't a single track on this CD that I skip. There are not many CD's I can say that about... So I am no professional music reviewer by any stretch of the imagination (so be nice) but here are some random comments/thoughts on the tracks:

*Old Tyme Religion - Told from the perspective of a dead man in a lover's triangle. You have never heard anything quite like this, musically or lyrically. This song is the perfect opening track as you instantly know that you are experiencing something special and a blend of music genres like you have never heard before.
*99 Problems - Deliverance is no longer my frame of reference for banjos, so thanks for that, Hugo! Seriously - to start with a hip hop song and end with this...brilliant
*Bread and Butter - Okay, first came Barry White, then Enigma -- now Bread and Butter -- this song is sex, pure and simple (and so much better than Barry and Enigma!).
*Rock and Roll Delight - Definitely where the 'pop' comes out to play the most - a catchy diddy for sure...
*Hopelessly Stoned - "Like a bug on my window pane/Safe inside from the wind and rain/Try to fly, but it's all in vain/Just hopeless, hopelessly stoned." This song is all over the place, in a very very good way - definitely one of the best tracks on the album.
*Hurt Makes It Beautiful - A lot of truth to these lyrics.
*Born - Very very catchy. It will get stuck in your head.
*Mekong River Delta - This song surprised me by becoming my favorite track on the album...and I can't for the life of me explain why...

A friend recommended I check out a video of Hugo playing "99 Problems" on YouTube. Fifteen seconds into the song I knew I would buy the entire album. This album is a complex mixture of powerful, beautifully composed, instrumentals that are intertwined with Hugo's mastery of vocal inflection, his dynamic versatility, and soulful voice .

The bass lines alone in many of the songs will have you stepping on the gas and blowing past speed limit signs. If the first two tracks don't get you moving and make you fall in love with this album, than you should probably ignore all future reviews I make. Support a great artist, buy this album; thereby encouraging the recording lables to produce more solid, and soulful, rock like this!

I'm glad OLD TYME RELIGION is finally out. I've been waiting a while since I first heard "Bread and Butter" - my favorite song on the album. Who can't like the words of the chorus? 'Gonna spread you like butter.' I heard it the first time on the CASTLE television show and then had to wait for the debut album to release. Oh well - anticipation!

I also really like "99 Problems"; "Hurt Makes It Beautiful"; "Born"; and "Wake Alone." But really there's not a bad song in the bunch.

A down and DIRTY bluesy rock feel to the whole thing that I love.

I had never heard of this artist before watching the 2011 remake of Fright Night. When the credits rolled a version of "99 Problems" that I had definitely never heard before came on (and the title line is really the only thing it has in common with the original version by Jay Z). Me and me friend were really impressed with it. I quickly pulled out my phone and used SoundHound to find out who it was by and found that it was from this album. I ordered it from my phone even before I got home. I've listened to this album probably a half dozen times in the past 5 days. It just gets better every time I hear it.

I can really only echo what I am reading here. This is a great great album. It is hard to put the album into a specific genre as it mixes things up a bit. I don't normally do reviews, but I was compelled to type something up to recommend this to other music lovers. The music seems to be a mixture of country, alt, blue grass, pop and hip-hop. It is beautifully done and just wonderful to listen to. Buy it, you will not regret it.

I won't lie I am a huge Jay Z fan and I was checking out the RocNation web site and saw Hugo under artist looked him up was amazed by what I heard. This guy is a true artist and I was blown away by every track from this album. This guy deserves to be huge and sell out stadiums. Love the album great great great music.

I heard 99 Problems in the movie 'No Strings Attached', watched the credits to see who performed it, went onto Amazon to search and found this CD. After listening to the clips and loving everything I purchased the CD. This was a great debut CD and left me wanting more, this is a good thing! The musical influences are evident, growing up in the 60's & 70's I recognized those influences. I played this for my sister (5 years older than me) and she loved it too. Hope to hear more from him in the future!

Old Tyme Religion by Hugo was terrific. I first heard the second cut, "99 Problems" as one of the songs on the closing credits of the movie Fright Night. This remake had been a real disappointment and I was just going for the remote to stop the DVD when I heard this song. It had a real Credence Clearwater Revival feel to it and I ended up backing up the credits and listening to the song over and over. The rest of this album is just as good. The sound varies from ballad to true rock and roll. This is new music that even we old rockers can appreciate. I will be going back for more.
