4.0 out of 5 stars It's the lyrics March 14, 2001
By Ethan
Format:Audio CD
It's true that this album is musically probably Greg Brown's most poppish. It's closer to rock than folk in its over-all sound. It's also one of Brown's darker albums. If you treat it as a pop album or a rock album it's clearly head and shoulders above the vast majority of what's usually spewed on the radio. "Tell Me It's Gonna Be Alright"-- the most Greg Brown-like song on the ablum in sound -- and "America Will Eat You" are worth the price of the album by themselves. On top of that you get a very evocative song about addiction in "The Monkey," two typically interesting songs about the folk life in "Back Home Again" and "Lotsa Kindsa Money," and "One Cool Remove" which just sounds great. It's worth buying, just don't expect the usual Greg Brown sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different sound August 22, 2002
By Bt
Format:Audio CD
First off, I want to say I love Greg Brown's music. He's an icon in the music business. So it saddened me to listen to this disc and find a pop sounding; and dated I might add, cd. Sure the lyrics are good; they always are with Greg, but the music itself is commercial sounding. I was dissapointed, but not to fear, Mr. Brown has bounced back very nicely with some great "Folkie" releases since then. If you prefer his folk/roots sounding music, you might want to stay clear of this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for those who love lyrics April 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This containes some of Greg Brown's finest writing, it is however different from his most of his other recordings. This is a dark look at American culture without being melodramatic. I purchased this one after adding one of his finest efforts "The Poet Game" to my collection, and I find lyrically to be amongst his best work. Highlights include 3 unique tracks "The Monkey", "One Cool Remove", and "America Will Eat You". Other Greg Brown albums that I purchased after this one (quite a few) although they were great, did not quite rate as high on my list!

3.0 out of 5 stars This album lacks Greg Brown's traditional "folkiness". August 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a devoted fan, I feel that "One Big Town" was a difficult step in the wrong direction for singer/songwriter Greg Brown. Please don't misunderstand me - each song has originality and potential. However, if you like Greg Brown's general mixture of folk music with a touch of gospel, this is not his best release. The songs are a bit too jazzy for my taste.
