Format: Audio CD
Perhaps having this album burned for me today is not the best way to advise on its value for money but having listened to it a number of times it comes as a very decent set of songs with a guest list to die for. Amos Lee has somewhat unfortunately since the release of his debut become tagged as the male "Norah Jones". Let me explain this further since since Ms Jones is in every respect an admirable artist who has taken a good few chances since her eponymous debut "Come away with me" propelled her to world domination. The problem is that despite her best efforts she has become synonymous with a sort of tasteful jazz/blues standard that can feel a little middle of the road. Amos Lee has suffered a similar fate and his albums particularly on the American Amazon site started with hundreds of reviews when he was heavily linked to Jones on the Blue Note label but have faded as he has cut out on his own. A shame really since he has a classic blue eyed soul voice and in his previous songs like "Arms of woman" and "Baby I want you" his debt to artist like Otis Redding and Bill Withers was both respectful and very well done.

His new and fourth album "Mission bell" takes a few more chances and while not a work of massive originality it is packed with songs that impress. The added value however comes in the form of excellent production from Calexico mastro Joey Burns who builds an expansive sound. In addition any album which includes in its guest list "Iron and Wine's" Sam Beam, the wonderful John Convertino of Calexico, country chanteuse Lucinda Williams and that craggy old rogue Wille Nelson is fine by this reviewer. Beam's influence on the stunning and almost sonic song "Violin" is a joy.

I have heard Amos Lee's music before and found him a bit poppy and safe for my liking even though he is clearly one talented guy, but this album really hits the ball out of the park.
"Violin" is a stunner, "Windows Are Rolled Down" is high energy beauty and the appearance of Willie Nelson on the conclusion of the album right before the dark "Behind Me Now" seals the deal.
The production is atmospheric and edgy at the right moments and glorious and clear for the positive ones.
If he made this kind of album a few years ago I would already been a fan.
Brilliant stuff.

Just got this one from Amazon.uk, and I haven't been able to stop playing it yet! So many good songs, lyrics alike, and what not? My favourite is VIOLIN, as good as it gets, but also STAY WITH ME and JESUS are excellent, moving songs. Amos has a great voice and surrounds himself with very good musicians and singers. I own most of not all of his albums, but this one just might be his very best viewed as a whole. Buy it or regret it if you don't!

I hadn't heard of Amos Lee before, this was recommended by Amazon based on prior purchases. I listened to the 30second samples, read the reviews and bought it, at such a low price little to lose.
It is brilliant and features frequently on the i-pod.
I'm certainly looking at further Amos Lee CD's, his voice is brilliant and the mood is superb.

Amos Lee has done it again, produced an album that is the quality of his first one featuring "Arms of a woman". I wasn't too keen on his follow up, but this new one, Mission Bell, is absolutely fantastic.

The haunting title track "El Camino" is just definitive Amos Lee, including a wonderful collaboration with Willie Nelson at the end. The "Learned a Lot" track is another stand-out track, but you will find yourself humming and playing this album over and over again.

I like his work in general but it doesn't reach the heights of his 1st album.
Still pleasant to listen to.
