Celtic Jam Rock 1 April 2001
By Clinton D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I did not hear of these guys until last night, when I went to see them play at Alley Katz in Richmond. I was utterly amazed, to say the least. Every musician in this band is beautifully talented, with instruments ranging from acoustic guitars to mandolins to penny whistles to upright basses to accordions to bagpipes. Yes, bagpipes. Barry Privett's rendition of "Amazing Grace" left the hair on the back of my neck standing on end. The album captures the onstage energy of the band in full, as it encompasses the band's variety of styles: rock, folk, and jazz, and ... well, traditional Irish drinking songs. I believe that the band's strongest point is their harmony -- an essential part of music which they use quite often. I highly recommend this album to anyone who enjoys the Agents of Good Roots or Dave Matthews-esque music. The CD is 71 minutes long and doesn't cost you an arm and a leg...you won't believe what you'll hear.

A unique and addictive sound 27 Jan 2005
By Ian B. Nofziger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Despite not being their most recent release, this CD remains my favorite Carbon Leaf CD. For those not familiar with their sound, I'd have to call it a mix of mellow to moderate rock and folk music with a significant Irish influence.

Songs such as "The Boxer" and "Mary Mac" will draw you to the CD initially, while the lyrics in songs such as "Maybe Today" and "Toy Soldiers" will keep you coming back.

If after your purchase of this CD you want to expand your Carbon Leaf collection, I would then ask you this: Do you find yourself more attracted to the irish element or the lyrics? If it is the irish element then I would tell you to pick up Ether-Electrified Porch Music next. If its the lyrics, I would recommend Indian Summer.

My new favorite album 2 May 2002
By M. Hull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I recently did something I rarely do...bought an album after hearing only one song. I heard "The Boxer" on a CMJ collection and thought "hey, this is fun and interesting". Well, I bought Echo Echo on a whim and I have been blown away ever since. This album is a rare collection of fun, beautiful, thoughtful and yet still musically playful songs. Each track is totally different than the next, and yet they all fit together. The range of sounds and textures is endless, and the band's musicianship and love of what they do shines through. This album is all heart and will make you alternately smile, dance in your car, sit quietly reflecting, and sing at the top of your lungs. Buy this. I mean it. Not since Beck's Mutations, or Guster's Lost & Gone Forever have I loved an album so much. It's nothing like those cds of course, other than that it's beautifully crafted and very creative. Carbon Leaf seems to effortlessly combine a variety of musical styles and influences, though I'd say that Irish folk music seems to be a recurring thread woven artfully throughout, so artfully you'll hardly notice it's there. They remind me a bit of The Young Dubliners in some ways, but have more range at their disposal. They've created a completely unique sound I think. Every track is a favorite! I can't wait to catch them live someday!

Too good for words! 21 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's funny because I read the review from the guy on June 18th and thought to myself....I wonder if he was listening to the right CD? He said he came across it through his girlfriend's Cd collection ...hey it could have had the wrong Cd in it, it had to have been the wrong Cd! Carbon Leaf's musical talent is beyond perfection! These guys could almost pick up any instrument and play it! Carbon Leaf instruments include.... Country Boy Acoustic Guitar,Takamine 460SC,(acoustic) Flatiron Mandolin, 16 in. Bodhran,Trinity College Bouzouki, Gretsch 6120, Fender Telecaster, 1975 Gibson ES335,1975 Gibson Les Paul, (electric guitars),Harmonicas,Tin Whistles,Tobias Pro-6 Six String,Fender Jazz Bass Fretless (electric bass) 1998 Willhel Klier 3/4 Bass (upright bass!)Dw Drums, LP Bongos, a Cajon.
With all of these istruments along with Barry Privett's voice....how can anyone hear anything but amazing music blending together with a happy enough beat to keep your feet moving!!! like I said, He HAD TO HAVE been listening to the wrong CD! Ok, so if you can't decide who's right or wrong....buy the CD Echo Echo and I can almost 100% guarantee you'll see exactly what I'm talking about!!! (and you won't be able to take this Cd out of your disc player!) Enjoy!

Some different thoughts..... 26 Feb 2005
By Jim Archer - real name, no badge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I stumbled across Carbon Leaf after XPN in Philly had their most recent album as one of 2004's 50 best. Rather than repeat what others have said, let me note a few other things I really like about them (and this CD specifically)

1. Having available 2 complete albums for free and legal download. I downloaded both Echo Echo and Electrified Ether Porch music and was able to get a really good sense of the music without purchasing them (which I now plan to do just to fulfill my end of the bargain)

2. Slightly different song structures. Rather than just plain vanilla verse and chorus, many of the songs build, adding additional lines to subsequent choruses, and contrasting less assesible verses with catchy chorsuses. Reminds me a bit of XTC in this last regard.

3. Great rhythmn section. After repeated listenings, I realized that the drummer reminds me of an old high school friend (who was a fantastic drummer) in that he really drives the songs forward and adds a lot of texture to the songs. Not bombastic or really flashy, but if you notice what he's doing you really appreciate it. Same things for the bass player.

Excellent throughout.
