I'm fast becoming a big fan of this guy. I've previously given his Hooray for the moon a top review and this one is very close behind. He has the kind of growling but still tuneful vocal that I really like. First song here is a reference to Neil Young's Needle and the damage done, except junkies are "just broken that's all"- strong opener followed by Burning off the cane and, I said ,which both maintain a high standard without quite hitting the gold standard of 'moon'.
Pop song-maybe just that but its damn good-Gilead has biblical tones and references-and yet I'm guessing the conversion isn't complete-its very hard to pidgeon hole this-a certain Buddy Miller like committment but with a harder edge-more rock than country, with almost a punky attitude. Nearly all the songs are guitar driven and very short-think early Costello/Joe Jackson but vocal is all his own.
Again references to Young/Clash and the Who-'all in a row" in My Lucky Day. The pace keeps up on While its there but slows for the ballad Best-no schmaltz-lovely slide-the band play well without getting in the way. We're near Tom Waits territory for La-La-La-all whispered menace and dark americana-reminded me a little of the Doors too but maybe just me. A bit of a jumble but it works.
God's gonna give you what you need (He don't give a damn what you want) is back to Buddy Miller's grungy gospel(or perhaps closer to Ray Wylie Hubbard)-maybe he is converted after all but this is a great song. Album ends with another Waits like ballad, I will be happy again-its all over too quickly but there is no problem about putting it on again-really must see this guy live.

Can't Get Enough 18 July 2010
By Scott Sparling - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've lost track of how many CDs I have. And every day, I play this one. The lyrics are amazing, the music just roars, and Jon Dee's voice has never sounded better. This is as real as music gets. Nothing contrived, nothing extra. It's like, I listen to this, and it makes me a better person. At the very least, you ought to put it into your head and see what it does to you.

The real deal 16 Mar. 2010
By C. R. Bupp - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jon Dee Graham is a true Austin treasure. If we were luckier, he would tour outide his home town more than he does. His latest CD combines his ability to write lyrics for grown-ups with amazing musicianship (his and that of his stellar bandmates). Beneath a gruff exterior, under full on rock n roll in some songs, beats the heart of a gentle man who despite it all somehow remains optimistic. "(Let's Get it) While It's There" is to me as close to a perfect song as I've ever heard. I bought "Full", the cd before this one, and soon had every one this man recorded. Try this cd...I would be amazed if you weren't glad you did.

Jon Dee's new CD 23 April 2010
By C. C. Ford - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've known about Jon Dee Graham since his early day's with the Skunks, but never paid much attention to his solo stuff. I really didn't know what he did, but the Tom Waits comparisons sorta turned me off. But, put that aside, because this cd rocks! At least some of the time. Like the SXSW show I saw this cd is balanced between anthemic rockers and more introspective material. There are at least three masterpieces here -- I like "Broken," "Lucky Day," and "While It's There." The rest are quieter. You might even skip over one or two.. But, basically this is a great cd.
Another Solid Effort from JD 17 April 2010
By Mike Rudge - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was introduced to JD's music ten years ago with Escape from Monster Island and have since bought CD's by the True Believers, the resentments and the solo stuff. This album has a rougher edge than almost all his other CDs and that is not a bad thing. JD's sense of melody still underpins everything and as I usually find the rewards come from repeated listens. If you have heard his music before you won't be dissappointed, if not then I would recommend you look at some of his earlier releases first including Monster Island and Full.
more good stuff from Jon Dee 18 April 2010
By Austin Music - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is great stuff. More good guitar, songs about south Texas, strong lyrics. Everything you'd expect. You'll like it.
