Editorial Reviews

Sean Rowe, who The Wall Street Journal wrote "recalls the ecstatic intensity of late-'60s Van Morrison and stark subtlety of late-era Johnny Cash" has created a beautifully primal work. Madman is deliberately simple in both arrangement and composition. It is soul music in the purest and most literal sense, hypnotic rhythms, warmly distorted guitars and Rowe's incredible voice recalling a time, real or imagined, when music and people seemed distinctly more connected.

I have not been this taken with a songwriter since discovering Michael J. Sheehy.
Mr. Rowe's voice has been compared to everyone from Tom Waits to Johnny
Cash, including Greg Brown, Leonard Cohen etc. There is even an element of
Nick Cave in his balladry. His songwriting is as if Cohen and Waits had
an illegitimate son and grafted Tom Jones' voice box on him.
This is my second album by Sean Rowe, the first being the exquisite Salesman And
The Shark that moves from strength to strength--complete with the Surf Guitar ending
to the song Downwind. Although all the strengths are intact on Madman, brilliant,
deep lyrics and impassioned delivery I feel it is not quite as breathtaking as The Salesman
& The Shark--it is still a million miles ahead of most singer/songwriter's fare and I strongly
suggest having it in one's collection. The disco-fied soul song Desiree seems a bit
out of place and a couple of the songs don't quite reveal the God-head. The good
and the great far outweigh those minor flaws, the song My Little Man in the hands of
a lesser songwriter could be a sentimental pile of crap, but Mr. Rowe turns it into a
deep and touching ballad--the same could be said for Looking For The Master. There is
a bit more "bluesy" rock on this album, the great Done Calling and Shine On My Diamond Ring
both rock with Waitsian swagger. The album is closed by the beautiful It Won't Be Long-- another
moving ballad. I would recommend this brilliant CD very, very highly. Mr. Rowe is a POWERHOUSE(!) of a writer and singer.

Sean Rowe's music manifests with a gut bucket, fire in the belly, naturalistic kind of delivery, while also taking the listener on a thought provoking journey. Think of the wonderfully possessed songs of Son House and you'll have a feel for the spirit in Sean Rowe's music, especially his live performances. If you get the chance to see him live, don't pass it up! He's truly a one man band with the power to crumble pyramids. You will leave the venue feeling purified and a better person from the experience. In addition to his great music, he is an incredible entertainer. Between songs he tells some very funny stories- anything from foraging for wild plants alongside the road while driving, to his love for the TV series, "Greatest American Hero." He's also very genuine and warm and loves to connect with his fans.

I have all three of Sean Rowe's albums and each easily deserves a top rating. All Sean's songs, whether stark or propulsive and multi instrumental, are bound by tremendous soul and are highly elemental.
