Editorial Reviews

Tomorrowland, the title of Ryan Bingham's new album, sounds futuristic, but the Oscar-winning singer/songwriter hints, Maybe it's not so much about looking ahead as it is about leaving things behind.

The album contains plenty of the pliant acoustic work that has marked Bingham's previous studio sets, but Tomorrowland expands his musical landscape exponentially. Guitars howl into keyboards and drums stomp against strings, all bolstered by Bingham's jagged, weather-beaten vocals.

By turns deeply confessional (Never Far Behind), and by others unflinchingly observant about society's underbelly (the epic Rising of the Ghetto), Tomorrowland features Bingham's fearless honesty throughout. It helps to say it and get it out that way, he says. That's what writing songs has always been about for me, it's never been about anything else. That's always been my thing.

With more experience and a mantel full of awards, like his 2010 Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy wins for his song The Weary Kind from 2009's Crazy Heart, the 31-year old Bingham finds himself, in many ways, back at the beginning. Recording Tomorrowland for his own Axster Bingham Records felt totally liberating, he says. Doing this label and the new music on our own had led me back to writing songs that sustain me. It's a whole new adventure for me.

I have to admit that with first listen I tended to lean towards the side of the negative reviews. Something just seemed off....but I gave the album about 12 more listens, with my undivided attention, and I have to say it has grown on me.

It's an entirely different breed from his previous albums.

This can be seen as good or bad. After giving it some time I think it's a good thing.

If Bingham's fans want him to put out the same formula of songs album after album he's going to have a short lived career and be burnt out beyond repair. I say let the artist experiment and test the waters of sound and instruments. Sing what you want to sing about.

True fans and listeners will find the silver lining and recognize the creative process at work on this album.

Those that listen on a more superficial/shallow level will dismiss it with a more negative review.

The most promising artist on the American musical scene continues to develop, get better, and more comfortable in his own skin. Listening to Bingham's music is, for me, as honest and raw as it gets. Since I agree with his political statements, I tend to like his songs about American society and find them to be right on the mark.

For fans of previous Bingham albums, this one has a stronger rocking edge to it. While some have derided this emphasis, I think it demonstrates how Bingham is not bothered by categorization and plays true to what he is feeling. I like it and look forward to more. In the opening song alone, Beg for Broken Legs, the addition of the the Middle Eastern riff in the end is a thought that just wouldn't occur to most American artists, especially those in the so-called country music industry. Full of energy and creativity throughout.

If your me, you heard the song Crazy Heart and were completely infatuated with this guy. And then you picked up Mescalito and listened to in a million times while running, walking, driving, sitting, standing, and anything else that requires you to consciously be aware and breath oxygen, (also listen to it while you sleep, but that requires breathing, but not the consciously aware part) After that you picked up Roadhouse Sun and went, ehhh. But then Junky Star and you listened to it a little but weren't sold. Now, I go back and I'm sold on Junky Star, and while I was sold on TomorrowLand, it isn't the high water mark. It's a blend between Mescalito, and the faster paced Roadhouse Sun. But I believe we were waiting for a blend between Mescalito and Junky Star. Don't get me wrong, it's a great album, but this guy is now cursed just like being Jacob Dylan. Everyone you meet no matter what you do will compare you to something better, and ask how that father Bob of your's are doing. While I believe this album was worth buying the second it came out as I did, I also believe I would still go to his concert and wait to go nuts hearing Southside of Heaven, and then whatever else he played, well, cool.

Gosh Darn Mescalito was that good. To me.
But if you like his music, and want it a little harder that Mescalito, a lot harder than Junky Star, but not a rock album as Roadhouse Sun, this is perfect. It truly is right in between.

Over produced and bass heavy. Why put so much echo on such a great voice? Do yourself a favor and buy any Ryan Bingham before you buy this album. I love his songs that tell tales of songwriting, traveling around singing those songs along with the desert sky. My hope is that Ryan gets back to simple. Simple is good right?

This one is different. Not bad, but great different. This guy throws out Mescalito, and it is a dynamite record. Then he flips the script and blows up Tomorrowland. This guy is a friggin magician with lyrics.

The one thing I can say that would be a negative is that RB acts like a 12 year old that just discovered the M-Fer word... he doesn't know when to use it, and it barely ever has a place in music. It made sense in Dylan's Hard Rain because of his bro being ripped off by guys "on the corner rollin bones",

Either way, this entire album, though politically driven, still resembles the passion for writing, and the genuine feeling that only Bingham can deliver. Any album this man ever puts out is almost a guaranteed hit.

Okay, I'm not really sure where these negative reviews are coming from, I actually enjoyed this album from the get go!

It's been a couple of years since Ryan Bingham's last album Junky Star came out, and since then I've been looking forward to whatever he would release next, and here it is "Tomorrowland". Is it different? Yes. But is it good? Heck yea!

The Dead Horses are nowhere to be seen on this album, which is a little of a downer, because they were a killer backing band. however, that quickly fades once the album begins. The new group of musicians on this album really kick it into high gear, I very much enjoyed the work they have put in here.

The lyrics do tend to lean towards politics, economic struggle, and other current events, and I dont see the problem, guys writing about what he wants. He's got a voice (as raspy as it is) and he can use it as see's fit as far as I'm concerned. Further, this has really always played a part in his music, so wasn't really suprised.

The important thing here is, I am enjoying the album, it's full of great songs, great singing, great musicianship, and it's great to have an new Bingham album!
