Editorial Reviews

Over With You, Steve Forbert's first studio album in three years, is an earnest account of the often-mixed emotions involved in personal relationships. The album takes the lyrical brilliance of Forbert and pairs it with a cast of accomplished young musicians who add a layer of supple, empathetic support. 34 years after his first album, Steve Forbert is releasing an exciting new one. ''This is an album that has taken a lifetime to make,'' explains Forbert. ''You don t just pull these songs out of thin air you have to live them.'' And these songs make the case that Forbert should be considered in the first rank of American songwriters.

5.0 out of 5 stars an under-appreciated songwriter makes a moody masterpiece September 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
this is a 'break-up' album, and a really fine one. its spare instrumentation puts the emphasis on the lyrics and forbert's always-unique delivery of them. the cello work from ben sollee is outstanding, and the ben harper guitar solo on 'that'd be alright' really makes that song. the songs are about relationships - mostly crumbling ones it seems, although there are some rays of light. this album really hangs together - its like a novel rather than a collection of short stories (which is what forberts last couple of albums felt like). these songs are accessible and, in some cases downright catchy, but with a lot of depth. as a long-time forbert fan, i'd call this his best album since 'mission of the crossroad palms' and that one was 1995!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forbert at his very best September 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really, really love this! I am a long term fan and this new release is definitely way up there for me. While it is impossible to tap into all the things going on in Forbert's music on a first time listen, here is my opinion, song by song for those who are interested

All I asked of you
Pretty dark without being too depressing lyrically. This is a really interesting, multi-layered song that does an amazing job of setting an unsettling mood

All I need is you
Really fun song. Has that instant familiarity that typifies hits and I could see this one getting covered by someone. Melodically reminiscent of "so good to feel good again" I pretty much love it

In Love with you
Really awesome guitar playing at the front end. Nice and sparse musically. I can actually feel the glass shards he's singing about. I find this song very moving and truly deeply beautiful

That'd be alright
An instant upbeat favorite. i love that thing he does at the end of the last two lines of each verse where he slides his voice up. Very forbert-esque! Nice rhythm instruments on this one too....as well as the instrumental bridge which is really nice and not that typical of his songs

Baby I Know
This kind of song is what I think earned him his reputation as a consummate songwriter. It is amazing that he packs so many thoughts, ideas, and clever rhymes (and words!) into such a short time. I also LOVE the harmonica. Nice!

Over With You
Opening line is fabulous. It's kind of bitingly sarcastic and sweet at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over With You September 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The name, Steve Forbert, may not immediately ring a bell with some of you. However, to many baby boomers, you will immediately remember his signature 1980 hit, Romeo's Tune. That was thirteen studio albums and nine live albums ago.

Forbert is ready with his fourteenth solo project, Over With You and is his first studio album in three years. The album is a ten song autobiography of genuine stories of personal relationships weighed with mixed and often bittersweet emotions and angst. The ten new songs are written with straight-forward honesty and introspection that some would think makes a songwriter vulnerable. "This album is very personal," Forbert says. "The songs are about what people feel in deep relationships -- mainly love and friction." Forbert explained, "This is an album that has taken a lifetime to make. You don't just pull these songs out of thin air -- you have to live them." Some have said that "these songs make the case that Forbert should be considered in the first rank of American songwriters".

I tend to agree.

The three randomly picked songs highlighted are:

That'd Be Alright is a fun, upbeat tune featuring a great Ben Harper solo that makes the song worthy of repeated slaps of the "repeat" button.

The title cut, Over With You, has the kind of melodic and lyric hooks that is guaranteed to create the kind of pleasant earworms that you would never want to be rid of.

Finally, the song about a long distance love affair called, Can't We Get Together. Fun, quizzical lines like, "Can't we get together in the same time zone? I could wait forever but it's all that time alone" make this song a love song for any and all who have found themselves in that kind of relationship.

Lovers of easy-listening, great American songs - love songs, even - will want to own their own copy of Over With You. It should wind up being a great American musical classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Forbert Is Back! September 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It's so great to hear one of the best American songwriters back to his roots, writing great, gut-wrenching songs while still keeping his humor. This album feels fresh, real, and honest. A great listen

5.0 out of 5 stars Forbert ponders the road to forever October 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD
By Jim Clark, publisher, Lee County Courier, Tupelo, Mississippi

I met Steve Forbert about 32 years ago at the Temple Theatre in Meridian. His album, Little Stevie Orbit had just released. His only Top 40 single "Romeo's Tune" off his second album Jackrabbit Slim was still getting heavy airplay, especially in southern markets. It made it to #11on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1980.
He was glistening with sweat, smiling from ear to ear, and obviously happy at the warm reception at this concert.
Steve grew up in Meridian and this was his first time back since he'd hit the big time. Hometown boy does good.
The singer songwriter at 21, traveled to New York, carrying little but his guitar and harmonica. He checked in at the YMCA, worked odd jobs and played at night for change at Grand Central Station.
I was sitting across from Steve a few years back and couldn't help myself. I wondered aloud how anyone could hitchhike to New York City from Mississippi.
"Well Jim," he said and laughed. "I wouldn't do it today."
Point made. We all do things when we're young and bulletproof, that we just shake our heads about today.
This past month Steve released his fourteenth studio album, Over With You.
"This album is very personal," he said. "The songs are about what people feel in deep relationships -- mainly love and friction."
What has made Steve one of my all time favorite troubadours is the depth of his lyrics and the musical sparseness, which completes the mood.
"I'm not Lady Gaga," Steve said and smiled. "I went for a much more minimal thing. It's all about the songs."
It's been three years since his last studio album, The Place and The Time, but that is not unusual for my friend.
