5.0 out of 5 stars Jason Falkner's return from obscurity? 27 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
With no record deal Jason Falkner has filled his time in playing on various other records, most notably Macca's last record. At present this record is only available as an import from Japan and begs the question why on earth such a talented songwriter & musician is lanquishing around with no record deal. This is a brilliant collection of songs that will no doubt disappear with little critical appraisal. Maybe Jason's salvation would be a reunion of the GREAT ORIGINAL JELLYFISH line up, with McFly nicking one of their songs, you never know. Anyway if you have a few quid to spare this record is strongly recommneded for anyone that likes music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A grower with hidden depths 14 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
Following on from the 'Bliss Descending' EP Jason appears to be heading in a change of direction. Upon first listen I was somewhat disapointed not to find the usual 'hook' laden power pop classics found on his previous albums. I did however after just a couple more listens start to discover the hidden depths of the record and can honestly say it was well worth the extra cost of having to purchase as a far east import. The album at times highlights Jasons wide range of influences from Elvis Costello to more obscure acts such as Wire and Monochrome Set. Stand out tracks include 'The Knew', 'Stephanie tells me' and 'This life of mine'. Overall a great album that falls into the 'grower' catergory.

4.0 out of 5 stars A LITTLE GEM 8 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
I must say that this album took a few plays to get inside my head.But it was worth the time and effort.
Jason's other albums and E.P.were much more hook laden and immediate on first hearing,but i think as you get into this cd,the songs begin to draw you in.
The highlights are the power pop of NYC,the majestic ballad Anondah and the rockin' The Knew.
The whole thing is up there with Presents Author Unknown and Can You Still Feel.
It's just a fantastic and joyful thing to listen too.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Falkner goodness 29 Oct 2007
By Eric J. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album doesn't knock me out like his major label debut (Presents Author Unknown), but it is a solid effort in the vein of the follow-up Can You Still Feel. You'll hear echoes of Kinks, Beatles, McCartney, the softer side of XTC, and other greats of melodic pop. Jason has absorbed a great many influences, and he whips them all together into rich musical stew. When you hear his composing skill on display in these new tunes, it really does break your heart that Jason can't get the budget and promotion he deserves. Actually, Jason seems to do pretty well producing his own stuff, but in sheer audio quality terms, it is not the best.

McCartney is a good reference point. This album is better than anything McCartney has put out in years. Chaos and Creation was a good album, and Jason was one of the studio musicians working with McCartney on it. But Jason's album has more energy and authenticity in my book.

If you've heard Falkner's work before, you know what to expect. No surprises here, good or bad. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I cannot understand why in a world of "American Idols" Jason Falkner can't be taken more seriously. His work is just as radio-friendly, he's as good a performer, and it has much more depth than the singers being churned out of the "Idol factory." Just another example of perversity in the music biz, I guess.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm OK... You're consistently wonderful 10 Aug 2007
By D. Sloan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's ridiculous that this is only available as an import so far, but believe me the cost is well worth it! Every track is a keeper, and the bonus track easily stands with the others. That said, how can it be a bonus track if this is the only version released so far? What makes a track a "bonus" when it's not even stylistically different from the others. When I think bonus, I think tossed off live version of a studio track, or sounds of a band goofing around in the studio, or something to that effect.

Anyway, this is beautiful music that will help you feel good. There's a lot of sunshine and love in this. It soars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long awaited and worth it 3 May 2007
By J. Pecoraro - Published on Amazon.com

Again another brilliant album from Jason Falkner. As expected it is full of hooky tasty songs as well as some more introspective moments. Well worth the wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Wait 19 Aug 2010
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am always stunned when albums of this caliber get left by the wayside. Pop-Confectionist extraordinaire Jason Falkner first released "I'm Ok, You're Ok" overseas in 2007, yet no US label saw fit to issue it here until 2010. And yet, this album all but bursts with sugary hooks, catchy choruses and gleeful singing. I am now able to listen to this in Philadelphia without paying an extortionist import price.

Thankfully, the patience was worth it. Falkner must have been saving these songs up, as each and everyone clicks with the power-pop thrills of his pedigree bands Jellyfish and Three O'Clock. You'll hear the traces of Paul McCartney, The Kinks, Todd Rundgren at his poppiest, and hosts of 80's power-poppers ("Stephanie Tells Me" is like a sister song to Material Issue's "Valerie Loves Me"). There's a joyous ode to finding freedom in "NYC," a killer boy-band in waiting hit called "Runaway," and an opening track that cloaks his frustration in a chocolate bar ("This Time").

How he makes it sounds so effortless is amazing to me. Like his classic solo debut "Author Unknown," Falkner spins together influences so seamlessly that you can merely sit back and let them wash over you. Likely while whistling along.

4.0 out of 5 stars A U.S. release (finally!) for Falkner's album and it makes me feel more than O.K. 1 April 2010
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Power popster Jason Falkner's 2007 release is more than O.K.--it's a strong album full of melodic, crunchy guitar power pop. As with all of his albums Falkner wears his influences on his sleeve(so-to-speak)including Badfinger, The Beatles, 80's new wave and even a bit of...The Cars on one keyboard driven track. As with his previous albums Jason plays all the instruments here (except for one track)and does so exceptionally well. The former member of The Three O'Clock, Jellyfish and The Grays checks in with some of his best constructed songs creating a memorable follow up to his first two solo albums (I'm not counting his "Bedtime with The Beatles" albums because they are covers albums and TV Eyes his album with former Jellyfish member Roger Manning).

From the riff driven opening track "This Time" (which also shows up as a bonus track on his latest album last year's "All Quiet on the Noise Floor")to the final track "This Life of Mine" all the songs feature the often bittersweet and witty lyrics one has come to except from Falkner. "I'm OK...You're OK" may SEEM effortless but these songs recorded between 2001 and 2007 are so detailed, brilliantly arranged and bursting with some many clever ideas that enhance each song that it's clear WHY Falkner took so long to release this follow up album to "Can You Still Feel?". The highlight for me is "Stephanie Tell Me" which features enough melodic invention for THREE songs wrapping its intelligent lyrics.

We get a booklet with all the lyrics (as usual)and the mastering sounds quite good for a contemporary release. Highly recommended.
