4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as his first... but still AMAZING! 4.5 Stars, June 24, 2008
This review is from: Last Days At The Lodge (Audio CD)
I would give this a 5 star, except that I gave his first CD a 5 star, and this one doesn't quite measure up. In some ways, I agree with the first reviewer, Amos has grown up. Some of his vocals and overall sound are unbelievable. He is so unique and classic at the same time.

Strangely, I enjoyed EVERY song on the CD except his first single 'Listen'. It is an alright song. The real treasures here are; Street Corner Preacher; Ease Back; Won't Let Me Go. Those are my three favorites from the CD, though there are a few others I absolutely loved as well.

Here are the tracks and how I would rate them (1-5):

1 Listen - 2.5 stars - it's alright. kind of grown on me
2 Won't Let Me Go - 4.5 stars - I love his high vocals in this one
3 Baby I Want You - 4 stars - loved this one also, very soft
4 Truth - 4 stars - this is classic Amos
5 What's Been Going On - 3.5 stars
6 Street Corner Preacher - 5 stars - might be the best track on the album
7 It Started to Rain - 4.5 stars - a very soft gem
8 Jails and Bombs - 4.5 stars - his most meaningful song, lyrically
9 Kid - 4.5 stars - another wonderful song, deep lyrics
10 Ease Back - 5 stars - super mellow
11 Better Days - 3.5 stars

Lots of 4.5's and a few 5's! This is really a wonderful CD that I would recommend to anyone, whether you are an Amos Lee fan or have never heard him before. I am sure many will consider this his best CD, but I would definitely tell anyone looking at Amos for the first time to get his first CD. There were so many amazing songs on that album, I don't know if he will ever top it. This CD, Last Days at the Lodge, is a huge improvement over his sophmore album, though. Overall, 4.5 stars and highly recommended!
