A Good Album is always a good album no matter when and where it’s a bit simplified declaration but…Who cares?! When you hear a good one… Oops there it is. The timing, the relevance to other artists and the essence: Good songs and honest lyrics. Cass McCombs is a patient singer songwriter Wit’s End is his fifth album, I think he’s best so far. The mellow 60’s sound, smooth guitars and smart production is “all there” and above all fine songs and melodies that sure will catch your soul. He reminds me good ‘ol artists from back when (60’s era) but McCombs hold the “right-now” potential he’s not a nostalgic-retro fashion bang number.. the album just stands out.
Cass McCombs - County Line
Jimmy Webb - Richard Harris - MacArthur Park
I know I’m not the only one who think that McCombs’s album spirit reminds Jimmy Webb..but again hell with it..I added (Below) Webb & Richard Harris "MacArtur Park" (listen to this right after you’re done listen to Cass’s Album :))
