5.0 out of 5 stars Schmotime: Absentee - Michaelson and the gang tell of more troubles in this excellent album, 20 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Schmotime (Audio CD)
This 2006 album is, I think, the third from Absentee. I listened to it after having heard some of Dan Michaelson's solo work and wanting to hear more of his unique voice and writing.

It's an excellent album. It takes a wry, cynical look at life, inverting the traditional love song and talking about the way most people really feel. Lyrically there is an eye for everyday detail and a sense of humour that ether makes you smile or think. Centre stage is Dan Michaelson's voice, that deep, craggy moan that sounds perpetually world weary. He's a great singer, totally unique. The rest of the band are no slouches either, and a decent album of music ranging form slower, bluesier numbers to some up-tempo rockers result, played with precision and imagination.

An excellent album, certainly the best of Absentee's short life. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this music., 24 July 2006
By 
Lyd (Somerset UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Schmotime (Audio CD)
This wonderful cd is on permanent loop in my car at the moment. From the first track when Dan Michaelson's incredible deep voice comes in I was hooked. Great tunes, funny lyrics, play it loud, play it soft it seems to fit every mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 23 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Schmotime (Audio CD)
Witty yet poignant lyrics and great melodies coupled with the astonishing lead vocal delivered by Dan Michaelson make Schmotime a must buy album for anybody looking for something a little different to brighten up their days, nights, whenever really! You won't be disappointed.
