Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JACKIE GREENE

TILL THE LIGHT COMES

2010-05-25

If you are searching for the bluesy or folk sounds found on past Jackie Greene releases this CD will surely disappoint. If you are looking for a well crafted rock release that encompasses both a classic pop and Americana sounds you will love this disc. This CD showcases an artist that is able to provide great melodies with songwriting that has enough hooks to reel you into his world and not let go. "Spooky Tina" is the story of a problematic lady and is meant to be a hit single. "1961" and "The Holy Land" are the most folk oriented tracks on this release and have a laid back sound that showcases Jackie's storytelling abilities. "Take Me Back In Time" sounds somewhere between a cross of the Beatles and the Grateful Dead. This CD is certainly meant to be heard more then once as it has grown on me after each listen.
