ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Chasm contains a mix of moods and styles about loneliness and disconnection. Some songs are humorous anecdotes about dating or not being able to get a date. Other songs are more serious meditations on people who fail to bridge the distances that divide them.

Although the album begins in the acoustic singer/songwriter genre, it ventures into hard rock, synth pop, and experimentation. Songs range from humorous ("Dry Spell", "Vaseline"), pleasant ("Jacqueline", "Hard to Forgive"), mournful ("Torn", "New Years Eve"), and meditative ("Jersey Summer").

Devon Kappa

A fine tribute to the humor and pain of love
David W. Jacobsen has a distinctive voice, both in terms of his vocals and his compositions. Jacobsen’s quirky edge sets him apart even when addressing well-worn matters of love and loss. His virtues come to the fore on The Chasm. While a bit overlong, the album is a fine tribute to the humor and pain of love. Among several highlights, “Jacqueline” beautifully elegizes a relationship that cowardice killed before it could even begin; “Dry Spell” is a humorous folk mock-anthem about Jacobsen's solidarity as “one of many not getting any” (sex, that is); and album-opener “10,000 feet” rages, in a polite folk-rock way, about a woman trying so hard to be special that she isolates herself from the man who is trying to treasure her.
