Just like George Carlin before him, Snider's funniest material is also the most truthful.
After this new cd "Peace Queer", I don't get it... I saw him live and these bits were trickled throughout the shows.. Impressive on the side, but as a full record it doesn't quite come together...
Fortunately it is a seriously reduced price disc !! BIG BOUNUS.
The actual songs are great, but the spoken word doesn't have the same affect as a live setting. Over all it is not very good, although the songs are worthy, I feel the spoken word parts take away from the flow of the disc, almost like a train wreck... Maybe that was his intention?..
Go see him live and this cd will be essential. TS is infective and you won't be denied. Though this disc does not live up to the Todd Snider legend we have all come to publicly view, it does round up the "new" stuff all in one spot, hopefully, to move on to newer better ideas.
The question is....
Should YOU buy this disc?
For the songs - YES !!
for the artwork - YES
for the cheapness - YES
for the support of an artist - YES
It really isn't that bad... It is short, but short and sweet would have been better... I really like the songs, but the wit faded on this album.
I think most fans are into his wit and charm and this new cd has neither.
It's more like an E.P. rather than a full length CD.Read more ›
The first four tracks of PEACE QUEER dig under your skin, playing around in the dark, searching for your nerves. When the gritty electric guitar kicks in at the opening of "Stuck On the Corner," the nerve is struck. It's like a gentle massage turning into a full-on assault on your senses. Snider eases back into a more laid-back beat for the remainder of the record, but the damage is done--you're awake, you're alert, and by God you're listening. PEACE QUEER, like all of Snider's more recent releases (as he himself acknowledges here), is not for individuals afraid to look within themselves. Snider seems to suggest that we are all guilty of something, that we are all culpable--but also, more importantly, that we are our own salvation, that we can rise above and beyond whatever unconscious guilt we possess. It's not the happiest of messages, but at least Snider is talented enough to find a positive spin in all this madness. Listen cautiously...but listen carefully.

I like the way my brain feels after listening to Todd Snider's music. The songs definitely stick. This album was no exception, I just wish there was more of it.Published on April 27, 2013 by Dan M. Kalin
This album is darker than the usual Todd Snider fare, but it retains his usual witty commentary. "Stuck on the Corner" is easily my favorite song on this album & seems... Read morePublished on December 14, 2012 by Rebecca
In the world of lots of sameness, Todd Snider is unique. His song writing excels, but his style and subject matter are deep wells to drink from. Read morePublished on August 12, 2012 by Big John
This album (more like an EP) finds Todd Snider in a more experimental mood than usual. It also finds him angry and discontent but laughing to keep from crying. Read morePublished on October 24, 2009 by D. Ogdin
PEACE QUEER is a small (8 tracks), quirky and quintessientially Todd Snider CD. You either like Snider's singing or you don't. I do, and he is in his usual fine form here. Read morePublished on July 20, 2009 by Dan Bogaty
Just a bit shy of the standard he has set for himself which is truly hard to acheive as a singer/songwriter, empahsis on the songwriting. Read morePublished on March 25, 2009 by K. Smith
