I've worked as a backup musician for years, and tend to be a somewhat cynical judge of songwriters. I flinch easily. But when I heard "My New Book" from The Poet Game on NPR one day, I had to stop and stay in my car until it was done. Simply his best work overall, with nary a misstep or excessively sentimental turn. "64 Dodge" is a masterpiece - it talks about nothing and says everything. Yes, yes. This is the stuff.

One of the best albums, ever. The songs all stand alone and all stand together. An album that's all regional and all universal. Bob Dylan probably fantasizes that he is Greg Brown. Although I am not particularly partial to the singer/songwriter genre, some albums just shine through all the navel lint and this one certainly does just that.

I prefered Dream Cafe to this one, but only slightly. With these two cd's Brown is at the top of new folk music, and the singer songwriters revival. Great music and great lyrics. You ow these two cd's to yourself after a hard day's work.

Greg's unbelievable songwriting gets placed on a pedestal with this album. He put his heart and soul into this album and it shows. With the title track he opens his life to his listeners and lets them feel what it is like to live his life. Of course it wouldn't be a Greg Brown album without a little fun so in walks Boomtown. The cynical views take on a lightness that pounds his message in even further while your toe taps rhythmically. Great work.

The first Greg Brown album I owned, and it didn't take long to get me hooked. Layers upon layers of poetry, gorgeous tunes, and an unmistakable, masterful delivery. The disc is worth buying for "Driftless" alone - it's amazing, it's like a hymn, I want it played at my funeral - but that doesn't do justice to the rest of the album. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is my all-time favorite album.Sad,moving,personal.Brand New 64 Dodge,and One Wrong Turn are standouts on a standout album.Bo Ramseys guitar is the perfect compliment to Gregs lyrics.Greg is in my opinion one of the absolute best artits recording,and this record tops them all.Buy it!!!

This is not the best Greg Brown album I've ever heard, but I've never heard a Greg Brown album I didn't like and didn't keep.

OK so I'm almost a Greg Brown groupie. This is a fantastic CD. If you don't have it, order it today.
