Album Notes


to write a review

hunter music review, allisandra scahill

"...one of those albums that sets up shop in your brain and wont be evicted. Ad
Ezra, along with some Hunter alumni, recently put out his first full length CD, "Neo-romeo." I bought a copy at his CD release party in early October and have had it in steady rotation since. The music is raw and melodic in a Beatlesque sort of way with a lot of guitar and trumpet. As an album, "Neo-Romeo" weds the melodic anguish of the Smiths and the searching of Jim Morrison with the party anthems of Sublime and the libidinous energy of the Chili Peppers...the songs will take you high and have you dancing with God in "Haiku" before dropping you in the gutter, drunk on tears, to the burlesque fall-out of "Reality is only on TV." I found the title of his last song, "Mad to Live" an appropriate lyrical summation---this album explores redemption, rebellion and the willingness to loose everything in the search for love and freedom. Ezra's voice issues a challenge...his lyrics change. If you don't find yourself dancing along to it you will certainly find youself singing in the shower. It's just one of those albums that sets up shop in your brain and wont be evicted. Addictive. If you don't believe me take a listen.


Best ten bucks I spent all week
"Reality is Only on TV" is worth the price of the CD all by itself; that and "Twentysomething" are real standouts. Overall, the album is clearly the work of talented musicians, but don't take my word for it, buy your own copy.
