Format: Audio CD
Question : Why should you buy an album of other people's
songs by a relatively obscure bloke with a guitar ?

Answer : Well you might not but I did and I shall spend the
next few minutes trying to persuade you to give him a try too.

The 2005 recording 'Micah P. Hinson and The Gospel Of Progress'
was a stunning debut. Edgy, idiosyncratic and chock-full of
strange, elusive magic. 2008's 'M.P.H. and The Red Empire
Orchestra' fleshed out his singular vision still further.
'Tell Me It Ain't So' from the latter is a composition of
near visionary intensity.

'All Dressed Up and Smelling Of Strangers' is a different
kettle of carp entirely. The sixteen stripped-down covers on
this new collection find Mr Hinson confronting both his angels
and more than a few of his demons. This is NOT easy listening
by any measure known to man but give it a chance to get under
your skin and the rewards may well justify the effort expended.

Sinatra's 'My Way' is simultaneously crucified and resurrected.
Mr Hinson's mission to grasp the big top notes elude him but
what might have been an affair as painful as hearing the song
slaughtered by the fat man with the red face at your local pub's
karaoke night is somehow transformed into a weirdly sincere and
affecting cris de coeur. A near disaster is miraculously averted!

His rendition of Roy Orbison's 'Running Scared' is more secure.
It is a fine gravely-voiced performance with just the right
amount of reverb in the mix to capture some of the essence of
the original's powerful charm. It is a fine re-imagining rather
than a vulgar attempt at re-creation.

First, to state the obvious, this latest offering from the gravel-voiced singer-wongwriter Mr Hinson is a covers album split over two CDs. One is labelled folk, the other alternative. Whilst there are some decent covers to be found across the two, no single example is better than the original (or other subsequent cover), such is the dizzingly-high standard of records chosen to cover.

The Bob Dylan cover seems lacklustre against the hard-hitting original. The Leonard Cohen is too shrugworthily similar to its original, but without the necessary vocal gravitas. The Frank Sinatra classic is actually quite painful and tuneless.

The alternative disc is considerably more interesting. The Elvis example is made Hinson's own with a different brand of tristesse interwoven with the inclusion of an organ. The often covered, 'In The Pines' is slyly affecting, introducing Hinson's own disquieting unease. The feedback-heavy cover of Buddy Holly is particularly tasty.

Nevertheless, the feeling is that this is for completists and extreme fans only. Approach with caution, certainly the 'folk' disc. For original, and excellent Hinson work, check last year's Micah P. Hinson and the Red Empire Orchestra.

For about 5 years Micah P. Hinson was my favourite artist of all time. Seen him play live many times and he is just genius. This album was a horrible disappointment and I was so upset through it out the car window in disgust.

I found this album to be another master piece, which does compare and exceed the previous works. The deep passionate presentation of the music will touch that inner sense, which provide happiness, of those who are Micah fans.
