I have to be honest: I enjoyed his debut album so much I was half hoping Amos Lee would 'do a Norah Jones' and give us Amos Lee Part 2, or, in other words, more of the same.

But he hasn't. He's gone for a different producer this time around, leaving Lee Alexander for Barrie Maguire and thus, for a different sound.

He's turned it up in musical terms; his voice is bolder and whereas I always felt that he could've climbed on stage and performed the majority of the songs on "Amos Lee" armed with just his guitar, here he relies more on a full band. There are more background vocals here was well, though all performed by Lee himself.

Where I think he's turned things down a notch is on the angst, melancholy, the overall raw emotion he gave me on "Amos Lee". On that CD I felt a sense of identity and intimacy with the singer that I don't feel on this one. In fact where the first CD made me feel a range of emotions, this one makes me feel nothing. (Well, there was slight alarm at the totally unexpected mention of cocaine use on "Night Train" and one significant highlight was Lizz Wright popping up on background vocals on the anti-war song "Freedom" but that was about it).

That said, upon reflection I guess I have to hand it to the man for trying to progress and expand his sound. Most of what I've grown to like about Amos Lee (his voice, his songs) are all here and his personality still comes across pretty well. There's still good music here and it all makes for very pleasant, reflective listening. I'm still a fan. I just prefer his former CD to this one.

Amos Lee has a the knack for lovely lyrics and colorful melodies, and continues to reveal his talent on "Supply and Demand," the follow-up to his rightfully acclaimed self-titled debut.

The singer/songwriter might seem to exude a cliched coffeehouse quality, but he never drifts into self-indulgence or monotony; a rarity among his peers. The soul that consumes his music is indicative of his hometown of Philadelphia, yet he has developed such a laid-back, churchy sound that he may as well as hail from Biloxi, Miss.

The fast-moving collection jets off with the folksy lead single "Shout Out Loud," which finds Lee waxing on his finite existence in the scope of all the people he sees on a busy street. With a winning melody and refreshingly informal lyrics, it is a fine indicator of the rest of the disc.

"Careless" provides a unique look at how friendships can dissolve when romantic intentions interrupt, as both Lee and his pal take a liking to the same woman. Similarly, "Skipping Stone" laments the fickle heart of a former flame while conceding that letting one's guard down is the only way true love can be fostered. A near-perfect role reversal occurs later with the sunny "Southern Girl."

"Freedom," which finds jazz artist Lizz Wright providing backup vocals, is another surefire highlight with its powerful words: "Don't want to blame the rich for what they got/Or point a finger at the poor for what they have not/Freedom is seldom found/By beatin' someone to the ground."

The title track is perhaps the most introspective on the album, yet it maintains a strong universal quality. Growing restless in the systematic way of life, Lee realizes after a night of jogging that he needs "a plan to understand that life ain't only supply and demand.

What a superb album! I am trying to praise him when I say that I here a little bit of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Paul Simon and James Taylor is his clear and beautiful singing.

Could it be that we are hearing the early works of another great ballad singer?

The songs are very laid back and the unhurried. They are romantic and heartfelt, sounding somewhat bluesy, somewhat country and absolutely genuine.

I purchased this CD based on Amazon recommendations and I am very pleased with the result. I look forward to listening to his self titled album.

I wasn't sure that I believed Amos Lee could make a sophmore album to compete with his debut. However, he has made a believer out of me. Poetic, haunting, yet with a bit more punch and playfulness, Supply and Demand is an elegant progression of a deeply soul-connected artist.

My expectations were high. I have listened to the first CD over and over and over . . . and was ready to see what Amos would do next. It is as if he is *elaborating* in this one, expanding instrumentation, playing with great harmonies. The first song "Shout Out Loud" is a fabulous feel-good song, and just the beginning of the journey, which takes the listener to thoughtfulness, romance, sadness, and celebration. "Freedom" is a his not-so-subtle way of commenting on the world, and I like how he does it. I also really love "Sweet Pea" and "Southern Girl" (and not just because I live in Charlottesville).

I highly recommend this CD. I'm enjoying it as I type.

I love this CD. I love the fact that Amos Lee is the type of artist who is true to his music and although he may not be considered "mainstream", music lovers will "get him" and his style. Sometimes, as I listen to the music of today,I get dishearted because I find no value in the music, no artistry. Well, "Supply and Demand" confirms to me that their is still real,thought provoking, moving,engaging,and creative artists around. Like his previous CD "Amos Lee", I love the lyrics in the songs. "Shout Out Loud" is a great song to open with, and my teenagers ask me to play it over and over again...I have many favorites, including "Shout Out Loud", "Skipping Stone", "Supply and Demand", "Sweet Pea" ...o.k., I love the whole CD....In an age where you may get 1 or 2 songs on a CD that you really like, this CD is filled with songs you will love...Buy it, then enjoy!!!!
