Editorial Reviews

Tomas Kalnoky (here under the stage name Toh Kay) has been the lead singer and songwriter of Streetlight Manifesto for the better part of the last decade. On his full length debut for Pentimento Music Co, he's recorded 10 classic tracks from his band's repertoire, in a simple folksy style; one finger-style acoustic guitar and one hushed voice.

For about 150 nights every year, Toh Kay is on a stage at his ''day job'', sweating profusely and screaming until his voice is hoarse. Naturally, when he comes home the last thing he wants to do is plug in an electric guitar and continue the noise. Instead, an old nylon string acoustic guitar comes out of its case; songs are fingerpicked, lyrics are more whispered than sung. No overdubs, no other musicians, not even a pair of headphones are welcome in the studio when it's time to record. Just a single wooden instrument and a room full of quiet. With songs on subjects as broad as morality, mortality, heaven, hell and whatever may lie between the two, the music is written and recorded in a dark, quiet room, so it's no surprise that it's best listened to in that sort of setting.

Clearly easily appreciated by anyone who is a Streetlight fan and knows the songs.

Perhaps it was overlooked when it was recorded, but the song A Better Place, A Better Time (for example) has this low rumble during the louder guitar parts.

I know there are times that I want something more mellow, so this CD is perfect for that occasion.

Same awesome songs with that beautiful acoustic twist. This album nailed it. I knew it was going to be good I just didn't know I'd have listened to it nearly 10 times through within 24 hours. To say I am satisfied with this purchase would be an understatement.

This definitely puts a great spin on the classic songs that I love. Tom said most of Streetlight songs originated from an acoustic version so it's cool so hear them being played so differently than the hard rock and horns that we all love. If you like Streetlight this you should definitely buy this, worth every cent.

Not sure I am not in an alternate universe. A place where SLM rules the planet with their music and lyrics. Apparently too much noise in this one to see that there is to see (many thanks to you american idol...... ) Eight posts? Saw show #6 DC of this year's tour. Sellout crowd - flawless songs - total chaos in the crowd surfing crowd - I be 54 years old - sorry but full disclosure is require on this .
Young men will have visions and old men will dream dreams. SLM is one soundtrack to my life and dreams.
Learn about this band - the fights they have had with production, distro, and sound to stay true - I guess it is the "heart" of the effort that I love so much - like a sandlot team about to win the world series.
And so sure of message that it would be re-released in an acoustic version - to make sure the lyrics do not go unnoticed

simply amazing - quit hating and get yer inner green day on!

Clearly easily appreciated by anyone who is a Streetlight fan and knows the songs. In an interview Tomas stated he writes all Streetlight songs on an acoustic guitar then they adapt for the band. So to me this would be the more pure versions of his work. I love them, He is an excellent guitarist and lets it shine through here.

If you are a fan of Streetlight, then you will most likely love this album. If you aren't a fan of more mellow acoustic music, then maybe you should avoid this. I know there are times that I want something more mellow, so this CD is perfect for that occasion. It's a great sing-along album just like the original albums. In addition, you should probably skip this one for now if you haven't heard the original Streetlight albums before. It's not that you couldn't appreciate Kalnoky's beautiful playing and melodies otherwise, but I think you will enjoy it much more if you have heard his songs before and can sing along. Another reviewer commented on the sound quality of the album; I'm not saying he/she is wrong because everyone has different speakers, sound cards, etc., but nothing odd stuck out to me - just great music. For the price you can't go wrong with this one!
