I was quite surprised to see a new album from Brendan Benson, so soon after 2012's "What Kind Of World", an album that I thought was decent, but certainly not one of his best. I then read that it was the product of compiling the results from an acclaimed monthly singles project and became very interested to hear it. When it finally rattled through my letter box and I listened to it for the first time, I thought it was pretty good, but nothing that special. A few listens later and the songs have really leaped out at me, it's an excellent album! Many people, when speaking about Benson, speak about the Raconteurs, but I'd already bought a few albums of his before he got together with Jack White for a couple of superb albums and my favourites so far are "Lapalco" (2002) and "My Old, Familiar Friend" (2009), but, seeing as the other two are pretty great too, there's no such thing as a bad album by Brendan. He has this innate melodic indie-pop sensibility that shines through on any project he works on, including co-writing a few songs with Jake Bugg on his rather fantastic latest album, "Shangri La".

There are plenty of brilliant songs on this indie/powerpop gem. The album kicks off brightly with the catchy "It's Your Choice", which features a bagpipe-like sound to good effect, "I Don't Wanna See You Anymore" oozes class, with bursts of brass, organ and a beautifully pained vocal from Brendan and "I'll Never Tell" is a melodic beauty with a supremely memorable chorus. "She's Trying To Poison Me" is another classic composition, a slightly dark, humorous tale where the music alternates between jaunty and dreamy and which sees Benson slightly bemused about why he's putting up with this woman trying to kill him: "She's not exactly the girl of my dreams".

Brendan Benson's latest record MUST establish him as a household name? Well perhaps not but this excellent new record is that rare beast a pop record with no filler. Benson's ability to write 3-4 minute pop songs with hooks, melodies and astute lyrics is now putting him in the premier league. His outing with The Racontuers was a success but as a solo artist is where Brendan should be really making his name. BUY IT!

It's not since getting into Elliott Smith that I've had a similar experience. I've known of BB for a bit and heard a few things but this is the first album by an artist for quite a while that I have played end to end twice in succession and have to pull myself away to say "now for something else". Recommended, with Rejuvenate Me and I'll Never Tell being personal favourites. Give it a go. Like the cover too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brendan & The Posies 13 April 2014
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Brendan and The Posies? Well, not quite, but on his latest impressive album, Brendan Benson includes Posies members Ken Stringfellow and Jon Auer in his band. Unfortunately, all they do is play instruments, so we don't get to hear their distinctive vocals, and for me that's a bit of a disappoint.

But on the whole, this CD does NOT disappoint, sparkling with plenty of hook-filled tunes and crunchy guitar work. If you've enjoyed any of Benson's previous albums, I think it's a safe bet that' you'll be pleased with this one too. Benson remains one of the better, yet more underrated singer-songwriters working in the "alternative rock" universe the past two decades. He may have gained some measure of fame and recognition playing with Jack White in the Raconteurs, but I think his fine solo albums --- and this is one of his best --- are where he really shines. Grab it ... and be grabbed!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album! 4 Jan. 2014
By pjohnson3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am a big Brendan Benson fan dating back to the 1990's when a friend who knew Brendan took me to the record store in Ann Arbor and told me I had to purchase One Mississippi, which I did. Still one my all time favorite albums. Anyway, I haven't been keeping up with what he has been doing for a couple of years. Just decided to see if he had put out anything new ,and saw You Were Right and took a chance and bought it.

Oh my god, I have only had it two days and I am totally in love with it! It's really a great album with all kinds of variety-very smooth sounding. Every time I listen to it, which has been often as I am on vacation, I find a new favorite song or hear something that I hadn't noticed before. Still very much Brendan Benson,but with lots of other cool sounds to go along with him. I can't even list all of my favorite tracks now, but the ones that come to mind are #4-Diamond,#12-Oh My Love, and # 15- Red, White and Blues. I even got my ten year old daughter to listen to it, and she likes Red, White and Blues the best.

Bravo Brendan! He deserves so much more recognition than he gets!

Brendan Benson always delivers. I still can not figure out how this guy isn't selling out large theaters or arenas. Buy all of his albums. You will not be disappointed.

Being released closely behind another all I can say it's like the albums flow together. If you have a chance to catch Brendan live, you will not be disappointed.
