5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 18 Aug 2005
By 
This review is from: The Hustler (Audio CD)
Jeff Klein appears to be one of those artists who is happy to hide his light under a bushel. After the rave reviews he garnered for Everyone Loves a Winner, you might have thought he'd have come out all guns blazing pretty quickly therafter. Instead, he went back to basics and re-thought where he wanted his music to go. Aligned with personal distresses, Klein appears to have had something of a reflective 3 years since his last LP. The Hustler is a more considered affair than Everybody. It's songs better formed and artisically crafted, the music more soulful and widescreen. But in no way does this detract from the passion that Klein imbues in his music. Love, loss and lust are all catalogued here in fine detail. Every track is recommended for this is a fine, fine album, but The 19th Hole, Nearly Motionless, Stripped and Pity are standouts. Bound for glory, Klein is utterly compelling live, losing himself in fabulous soundscapes. Make sure you catch him at his utterly brilliant best on The Hustler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody Loves A Winner ..., 27 July 2007
This review is from: The Hustler (Audio CD)
Jeff Klein's second album, The Hustler, is just as dark as his One Little Indian debut -- Everybody Loves a Winner - while trimming off the rough edges and offering, sonically and lyrically, more variety.

Recorded in New Orleans and produced by alternative rock icon (former Afghan Whigs frontman) Greg Dulli and veteran Mike Napolitano, the album is (still) set within the claustrophobic world that he introduced in the unapologetically dense Everybody Loves A Winner are .

Like Dulli, Klein narrates tales of obsession, jealousy and deceit (all the `qualities' that can consume relationships), and like Dulli, he also delivers the tales in an uncomfortable elegance. It's not about apologising for his wrongs and making excuses, it's about being honest.

The Hustler is a bleak, but beautiful record that is as vulnerable as it is hazardous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jeff Klein The Hustler, 15 July 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hustler (Audio CD)
The Hustler is a fantastic album, in the Ryan Adams brood-heavy singer-songwriter way. The songs are stark and often highly emotional. It's a welcome reprieve from the pop and faux-rock dominating the airwaves. I've had a copy for a few months now, and it's the best of the genre. Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers) produces and makes an appearance. It also features Ani DiFranco and Dave Pirner (Soul Asylum). (deltaparkblog)
You can check out some of Jeff's songs at his myspace.com page and you will be able to see the depth that he infuses into his music. You cant help but be drawn in, wethere you are in a good mood or if your having a bad day it seems to sooth and calm you down.
Defintaly worth buying, i got it 2 weeks ago from Amazon and it was one of the best buys that i have ever purchased through them!
It will be one of those albums that, before you know it, everone will have a copy!
