This, for me, is Stephen Lynch's best album by a looooong way. The live tracks are far better in my view, as, and the crowd reactions & spontaneous asides are hilarious (and maintain a high production quality that makes them easy to listen to repeatedly). The fact that you get both for this price is fantastic though. This is deeper than his other offerings, going for clever, varied and layered over a teenage-market-targeting 'close to the bone' style. I actually did the reverse of what other reviewers describe, by buying this and then buying some of his earlier work (though I had a few songs before). For me, no other album he's done before comes close to the quality and brilliance on display here. It's still offensive and brash in places, but if you are ok with that, its better qualities will certainly win you over. The highlights for me are 'Hey Love', 'The Gathering', 'Tennessee' and 'Let me inside'. If you listen to the live versions of these and don't like them, then maybe it's just not for you.

I have heard all Stephens albums and this one took a good few listens to grow on me. The album overall is as other reviewers have stated "less upbeat" than previous offerings and it may not be what you are expecting. The way I see it this album represents a move to a more musically mature Stephen. The songs on here in my opinion are some of the most well written songs (both musically and lyrically)that Mr Lynch has produced. Unlike some other reviewers I actually enjoyed the addition of the female vocalist on some tracks and to me it added some depth that wasnt there in previous albums. Likewise the addition of various string instruments on some tracks to me were added to great effect. The way I look at things Stephen Lynch isn't just a fantastic comedian but also a fantastic musician and therefore and I believe that this album allows both sides of him to shine. My favourite tracks were "Tattoo" (for this song alone the album is worth owning) and "so this is outer space".
This album "LION" is to me a fantastic marriage of music and comedy and I recommend that you purchase it, although I do think the lack of pace and punchlines in some of the songs will turn some of Stephens Die- hard fans off. That said, Well done Mr Lynch!!

Much quieter and more melodic than previous SL albums, but wickedly funny...."The Night I Laid You Down" is the best love song I have heard ..ever !! just genius, helpless laughing
Well done (again) Stephen you remain the naughtiest boy in class by a mile !

I have never really felt the need to write a review on amazon (I usually leave that to others)but given the severe dip in quality this album represents for the usually stellar Stephen Lynch I simply felt compelled to share my thoughts.

Where to start?

I think that the most jarring aspect of this new album is female vocalist who accompanies Stephen on several tracks. Her voice simply doesn't add anything to the songs and is overall just both distracting and detracting when placed beside Stephen's amazing singing. With the exception of the song 'The Night I laid you down' her singing in all other songs is just not suited to the style of comedy of Lynch.

Also, several of these songs have been available on youtube in early draft versions played at live concerts, and honestly, they have not transferred well to this album. In particular 'Lion' and 'Tennessee' have been completely butchered when compared with their much more minimalistic early versions. Tennessee has been slowed to a crawl and isn't as heavy on the piano as it should have been (and again the females voice detracts from it) and Lion has been overcrowded with accompanying instruments and noise (instead of just the guitar) and has had the lyrics neutered so that the chorus now finishes with 'or a guy like me' instead of 'or a d*ck like me', which defeats the comedy of the song in my opinion.

Many of the songs on the album are also instantly forgettable with little replay value, 'Tattoo', 'The Gathering' and 'Lorelei' become less and less funny with each playing, and many of the other songs such as 'Too Jesusy' and 'No Meat' aren't that good to begin with.

His previous albums had me roaring with laughter, His subjects were risky to say the least, but he put such a wicked twist on things you couldn't help laughing.
I saw this album and awaited it's arrival with great anticipation, I didn't even listen to it in the car in case it turned out to be so funny I laughed so hard and may have lost control, turns out I could have easily listened to it there, as I think I chuckled once and grinned a couple of times, that was it, to be honest it just bored me and I couldn't wait for it to end.....Very sad.
Gone are the punchy tunes, and evil twists, instead it is slow, both in tempo and humour. I would urge any real Lynch fans to leave this one on the shelf, it really is that bad.

Slower, softer, more mature (relatively) lyrically and in delivery. I own all of stephen's albums, and love them all. This is a great addition to his catalogue and I hope he comes to the UK soon to perform these songs along side the old favaourites.
