Personality goes a long way. Sometimes the charm of one’s soul shines through in a way that exceeds all technical issues, politics, and personal preferences. All I have to say about this 13- song collection, in terms of its techinical value; is that it’s homemade. Its clean, bare bones, and free of any slick sonic ointments. Not one studio trick And this, my dear friends, is exactly what makes Peter Hall’s CD so charmingly warm and human.
While much of the world is stressing on the newest, slickest. biggest, baddest, bestest next thing ever, this sounds like he sat down one day with a beer, hit the record button, and started spilling his guts as a guy. Meet Peter Hall. He’s right here in person, in 3D – a person embedded in and giving life to an otherwise lifeless piece of mass-produced digitally capable plastic. Tough trick, artistically speaking. He tells stories and spins a heartfelt logic in a unique baritone croon that is quite special indeed. it was the first-thing that struck me as soon as I popped in the disc.
