Format: Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to hear Mark Weigle for the first time at the Phoenix, AZ Gay Pride festival in 2004. I was knocked out by his reserved yet fun demeanor, and his songs were alternately playful ("Bears") and deeply thoughtful ("I Remember"). As soon as his set was over, I wandered over to his booth and picked up a pair of his CDs. It was the best money I spent that weekend.
He plays folk music and is unabashedly out in his lyrics, but that doesn't rob the universality from a song like "In The last 5 Minutes." And as a gay man, I am always appreciative of singers who aren't afraid to be out about their lyrics, even if it means the likelihood of marginalizing the potential audience. There's no pronoun switching or intentional gender fuzziness about "Out" or "I Remember." It's just that, for a change, it's nice to hear someone performing for a gay audience that isn't backed by overbearing drum machines, synthesizers and screeching divas. (A scene and song form he adeptly parodies on "Love Your Body Like it Is.") "Out of the Loop" lives up to its title in that respect; it's music for the rest of us. Mark Weigle can get to your heart, and that's the best reason to pick up "Out Of The Loop."

I couldn't disagree with the first rater (Mr. Butterfield) of this cd more. This cd clearly represents musical and personal growth for Mark Weigle. While his previous cds are beautiful and haunting, with glimpses of pain in self-recognition and comfort in exploring one's identity, the new cd represents the drive toward health, self-esteem and acceptance.
Musically, he takes more risks, varying from his more country/folk/pop sound to one very danceable tune fit for even the hippest club. His ear for melody and arranging are the same high quality as they've always been so old fans will not be disappointed with this one.
It still amazes me that someone of his calibre has yet to be snatched up by the major labels. Come on Sony and BMG! This guy has the right stuff. The world is finally ready for an out artist with talent, wit and a devout following!

I had never heard of Mark before this album - and I didn't know what I was missing! This CD is constantly on - at home, at work, in the car. Some of the people at work are singing along with 'The Difference'!
If you enjoy a songwriter who tells stories (I Remember) - who touches upon common experiences (I relate very well to the estrangement of his father in the song 'Us Both') - who can have fun with songs ('Bears') - and who puts into words what some of wish we could say ('Out') - then this is the album for you!
