ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dangerous World: Slices from the Heart of Modern Life

At 50, Jim Inscore set out to do the one thing he's always wanted to do: write and record some great, gritty, urgent, urban, folk-rockin, guitar-driven songs. Hooking up with Bonnie Hayes (singer/songwriter extraordinaire with songs like "Shelley's Boyfriend", "Girls Like Me" from her 80's band Wild Combo, and Bonnie Raitt covers of "Have a Heart" and "Love Letter" on "Nick of Time"), Inscore delivers six songs that slice right through middle-aged love life sentiment and rage.

- Dangerous World: What's this mess we're making? Loud rockin angst - and some hope. Turn it up.
- Love In A Dumpster: Love, like home, is where you find it - & you gotta love that Susie Davis alley meandering accordian solo
- Unfiltered Camel: Taking life one day - one smoke - at a time.
- Stop Sign: Always goin somewhere, even when it's nowhere.
- I See A Girl: What we are, what we were, what we will be. Nostalgically promising.
- Rage: Age won't get us what rage can get us.

Dangerous World - The Reviews Are In:

Stephan Petersen, Bay Area Bands (http://www.bay-area-bands.com): "Although there are only 6 songs on the CD they are worth every cent because the music and lyrics are fun, fun, fun. ... Songs like "Stop Sign" make you feel shifting the gears, speed up and give you the right kind of nervous feeling(s) ... 'foot on the gas, foot in the grave.' ... Jim and Bonnie's vocals complement one another very well - sounds like two unruly vintage people had a lot of fun working together."

Rob P: "I Love the CD! Every song is great. Loved the lyrics (I thought they would be strong), tunes, arrangements, playing, mixing (seems like everything's at the right level in the brew, nothing muddy or over reaching) ... the stand-outs for me are Love in a Dumpster (Susie!), Unfiltered Camel (great rhymes, or assonance, I guess,  and mood), I See a Girl, and Rage. Kinda like Bap Kennedy meets Elvis Costello with Bruce Cockburn and John Hiatt influences (I think I hear Nick Lowe and, gosh, John Prine, in there too). Guess it's the grit-driven, folky-rock feel ..."

Christie C: "We have been listening to a lot of Kings of Leon lately, so this was a perfect segue ... a personal nod to I See a Girl. What a beautiful ode to an enduring relationship--heartening to we women in long term relationships who still like to think we're The Girl."

David M: "Very cool! Very Kinkish!"

EXCEPTIONAL!
Jim Inscore's music and performance career has its genesis in this CD. Each personal composition is engaging. Genuine lyrics lace exceptional delivery. All tracks hold together marvellously. Jim's confidence is secure. Time is on his side. I recognise a promising singer-songwriter I hope to experience live soon.

Russ Tomlin

Fresh alt-rock rewards repeated listenings
This is wisdom-imbued rock that's gritty where it should be, sweet where it should be, hum and sing-alongable, confident, distinctive lyric-wise, with the two voices (Inscore and Bonnie Hayes)really complimenting one another. I liked too being surprised at certain points during the six songs: I expected a zig but got a zag (if you've listened to the amount of music I have over the years you appreciate stuff like that). Give this CD a listen; the guy's been around the block a few times and tells about it straight up. Then give it another and see if you don't crank it up a notch.

We need more songs!
When I first heard Jim's work it was a very interesting
experience. The rough cut only had two songs, but I found
myself playing them quite frequently. I remember thinking
at the time, "I've got to hear more of this artist." I
felt a connection with my musical roots of the '70s but
without the disruptive intrusion of thoughts about who this
vocal sounds like or what song that guitar lick reminds me
of. Jim's music is unique but familar, somehow....very
comfortable for me.

With this CD, the production values are tight and with the
band behind him, the sound is very full and pleasing.
But, it's the lyrics that really rock me. There is real
poetry here. I'm very glad he included the complete text
of his 6 lyrical efforts. Some of it is funny, some is
thoughtful, but all of it is warm, upbeat and positive.

All I can say now, is, I'm hooked. And, Jim, we need more
songs!
