Darken My Door bests anything Ryan Adams has written since Heartbreaker, and Yesterday is a bittersweet teenage reverie that rewrites Mellencamp s Jack and Diane into your new summer jam. --Paste Magazine
The album is at once bold, intriguing and engrossing. The diverse themes are held together by an impeccable knack for the craft of songwriting. --Country Standard Time
Whether the protagonist or antagonist in his own set of narratives, Branan coaxes listeners firmly to his side with his whiskey-smooth croon and a transparency that is somehow bold and vulnerable all at once. Mutt is an assembly of rhyming invectives, lamentations, and near-sermons that ask for recognition without demanding pity --Interview
On Mutt, the country, soul, gospel and classic rock he's absorbed through his travels filters down to just its barest and strongest elements. Then it's all tempered by the mellow charring of Branan's voice, which is so smoky that even at full power it retains a whispering quality. --Country Music Television
Top Customer Reviews
Two versions of Survivor Blues bookend the heart of the record's 13 songs. The first is an aggressive punk laced version . The second serves as the closer and is the acoustic coffee shop rendition, complete with mellow electric piano. The songs in between look forward and back to each other, creating a two sided mirror of meaning that is both expansive and internal.
His easy, conversational delivery is a double edged sword. His voice is reassuring and smooth, but when he drops a few F bombs on "The Freefall" they come off as a little shocking and out of place.
He demonstrates a keen sense of humor on the amusingly sentimental Yesterday. Set in the 80's, he muses, "I was certifiably cool/ In my acid washed jacket and my stone washed jeans/I rose out of the kiddie pool."Each song has a different feel and Branan consciously let each one go in its own direction without deliberately establishing contrast
Like the bare breasted hydra on the cover, the album is at once bold, intriguing and engrossing. The diverse themes are held together by an impeccable knack for the craft of songwriting.
