I saw them live for the first time opening for the Toadies in Austin, and they really stole the show.

My personal favorite is Bare Hands Bare Feet - an anthemic rock song that isn't afraid to transport the listener into a fruitful jam-tangent.

3 excellent lead singers, the fantastic musical ability of each member, and great songs make this one of the best concert bands ever.

The Bright Light Social Hour is what we have been waiting for. Rock 'n Roll, that is funky, soulful, and progressive. The Bright Light Social Hour's self-titled album delivers a complete and unique sound that doesn't sound like it has been churned out of a pop machine, or like the predictably indie snoozers that seem to be a dime a dozen nowdays. This album is well produced and highlights the mastery these guys have of their instruments. The Bright Light Social Hour have yet to break, and now is the time to get on board and enjoy some fresh, inspired music. My personal favorite is Bare Hands Bare Feet - an anthemic rock song that isn't afraid to transport the listener into a fruitful jam-tangent. Garden of the Gods kicks some serious #@ss - coming in at just under 10 minutes, yet never gets stale or self-indulgent. If you like music that makes you want to get up and shake it and cry "whoa" after the tune ends, then take the chance and buy this album. You wont be disappointed.

i just saw these guys 4 days ago live outdoors at a show and it was one of the 5 best concerts i have ever experienced. i say experienced because while the songs sound good over my bose computer speakers, it doesn't compare to their sound live. this is one of those rare bands that sound better live with an audience than in the studio with remixes and filters and tech. unbelievable energy feeding on audience energy. 3 excellent lead singers, the fantastic musical ability of each member, and great songs make this one of the best concert bands ever. the set ended with a great cover of "young man blues" that equaled the who's legendary cover from "live at leeds". they came back for an encore song thanks to a vocal audience. i hope they stick together for many years and produce many more albums and more great music.

I met guitarist Curtis Roush at Gumbo's Restaurant in Austin the night after Mardi Gras this year (2011), a week or 2 before SXSW. I've been a rock and roll and blues fan for 40 years and Curtis just seemed like a guy who would create great music. I bought the CD as soon as a I got back to Connecticut and I'm glad I did - these guys are very creative and I can't wait to see them live - - if they ever get to NY City or CT.

The Bright Light Social Hour's self-titled album has been my favorite discovery of 2010. I saw them live for the first time opening for the Toadies in Austin, and they really stole the show. I've since seem them three more times and each time they blow me away. I was somewhat apprehensive that their live show would not translate to their album, but I was not disappointed in the least. Each member really brings something unique to the table in this band. There is not a single weak link, and each are incredibly talented instrumentally. Vocally, the band is outstanding, and their stage presence is insanely fun. The album has a slight retro feel to it, with some great guitar solos reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or Black Keys but they have a sound that is completely their own. The seamlessly transition between slow and fast songs, and it has a little bit of everything on it. And who knew that the organ sound could be so damn sexy! My personal favorites on the album are La Piedra de Iguana and Rhubarb Jam, but Shanty is a lot of fun and Garden of the Gods is definitely a journey worth traveling. I've had a chance to hear some of their newer stuff that isn't currently on an album at recent live shows, and so far, everything I've heard sounds really good. I really think we will be seeing a lot of them in the future, and I for one am down for the ride.

this is a fun album; I haven't found a song on it I don't like yet - it doesn't get old, I can listen to it a few times a day and still love it.
