I know that this is not quite the usual way of reviewing an album but since I was only able to get hold of Trading Snakeoil For Wolftickets, First, then Greetings from the side some 14 months later, I have to say that Gary's Debut album is absolutely fantastic. The acoustic guitar is phenominal and the piano work on St Christophers Lullabye is out of this world.
The fact that you can actualy relate to the lyrics in all the songs just proves that these songs were written from the heart and from observation of life which for me means and says more about a character than any amount of write ups or reviews could. The only critisism I have with the album is that the Song "Barstool" features on the Wolftickets album too which makes me feel as though this may have been an oversight on the record company as I feel sure Gary would have had enough material to have replaced this song with new material. This album in my opinion is for anyone who likes music made with simplistic creativity (flutes and pipes and acoustic guitars harmonised with perfect percussion),and lyrics with depth and feeling sung from voice with confidence... Full Marks Paul Simon Eat your Heart out.

Good CD in fine condition and very good price. Musically I don't find it as good as Snake-oil, but early days.

Powerful folk rock and stunning vocals 15 Nov 2002
By M.K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gary Jules is one of LA's best local artists, and one of my favorite artists of all time. He manages to say a lot with very little, and I've not heard him sing a single song that I haven't liked. This is a great debut, with a good variety of sounds; some of my absolute favorite tunes on this album are "Owen Down", "Push", and "Heroes and Heroin". I also very strongly recommend Gary's most recent album, "Trading Snakeoil for Wolftickets", which includes the tune most folks are probably familiar with, the cover of "Mad World" from Donnie Darko. ...

Relaxed and flowing 1 April 2003
By Jonathan Guthrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gary Jules puts together a tremendous CD that combines his instrumental knowledge with his voice. The result is a flowing, relaxed sound that puts you at ease. If you've listened to "Mad World" from the Donnie Darko soundtrack you know what an amazing talent this man is. Do yourself a favor and pick this CD up.

awesome album! 27 Mar 2004
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a must-buy! If you've ever had a chance to see Gary Jules at the Hotel Cafe in LA, you know how incredible this guy is. 'St. Christopher's Lullaby' is an essential anthem for anyone in love. 'Ghosts' will leave you positively shaken!

Love this album! 4 Jan 2013
By KristinL - Published on Amazon.com

Confession: I'm not new to this album. A friend introduced me long ago, and every once in a while, a craving would hit and I would start searching my usual music venues (iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Pandora, etc) in a futile effort to listen to it. It was nowhere to be found. One night, I thought to check Amazon, and lo and behold, there it was, just waiting for me! Thrilled to be reunited with such a great, calm, low-key album. It's soft-spoken, but has a lot to say.

The world keeps spinning, the devil keeps grinning 23 Oct 2014
By Just Leigh - Published on Amazon.com

It's natural to compare a new-to-you artist to someone else -- but Gary Jules stumps me. An early Paul Simon, perhaps. Spare guitar, relaxed delivery -- and lyrics which leave a fuse glowing in your mind.

Bluesy, mellow, with a Latin touch. A little like lullabies about the hard edges of life. And life's compensations, and what you will do to defend them.
