The songs are all good here--"Burning the Bowery" kicks things up with a muscular charm, and the rest of the tracks keep that guitar/bass/drums/rough-hewn vocals thing going. The desperation evident on track two when he shouts "you don't get your money back here!" lets the listener know that this is personal, as indeed it is.
My personal favorites on the album right now are "Disco Ghetto" and "Lonely at Heart," a ballad-riffic album closer which reminds me of Westerberg or Adams while briefly lifting from Elvis Costello ("you drink in self-defence"). While he does lift a little bit of attitude and structure from the artists listed above (Westerberg in particular), Malin's still got a distinct personality and distinction of his own. From name-checking Ken Kesey novels to his rocking explorations of the night life of people who simply don't know any other way to live, this album really does a lot of things well. It rocks, it rolls, and it's both intelligent and passionate at the same time.
A very good record.
Give it chance. Buy Jesse Malin and the St. Marks Social CD "Love it to LIfe", pretty cool, unique stuff.
