5.0 out of 5 stars Listen! 9 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another great album from John Gorka! For some inexplicable reason this great singer songwriter is not as well known in the UK as he should be. Maybe because his clever lyrics challenge you to listen. But they're so worth the listening. Try him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally got it right 5 Mar 2014
By B Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John has always been a fine songwriter, but his albums have been inconsistent sometimes. He had a tendency to overproduce and over orchestrate his music, especially the bass and vocal tracks.

The Bright Side of Down is excellent. The vocals are clear, the production spot on and crisp, and the music kept simple, yet full.

This is a refined collection of songs; musical, thoughtful, gentle but strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetic lyrical insights 9 Mar 2014
By Kathleen R. Marucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gorka's 12th CD proves why he has staying power over decades in the competitive music industry. His songs speak the truth, touch your sole and make you think. His sense of humor and talent spill out into this CD, leaving the listener with a warm sense of calm (except when he takes us driving through a snow storm in "Hold Up in Mason City"). Thank you Gorka

Warm, intelligent songwriting, Veteran performance. This one ranks among John's best. Once again, music that is both familiar and personable and, thankfully, not overproduced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brighter, richer, wiser 5 Mar 2014
By Eric A. Politzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John's music continues to evolve with yet another stunningly written and produced album. Listening to his new CD is like sitting around the hearth catching up with a dear old friend -- touching, reflective, whimsical, and deeply enchanting. With richly textured arrangements, this project shines brightly throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great set of Gorka songs 19 April 2014
By Reader Woman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have never gotten a John Gorka album that wasn't great. I never even care if it has songs on it that I already have. And this one is as good as they get.
