Album Notes
Modern is old again.... welcomed is the return of the focused, well crafted rock and roll song. Welcomed is Michael Trent, a rock and roll romantic songwriter of the most classic tradition. Michael Trent is both prolific and well revised. He currently functions as the front man and primary songwriter for the NYC rock band The Films. He is also 50 percent of the alt gospel/goth country duo Shovels and Rope, and maintains still enough material to have recorded one solo album and the prospect of another in the near future. He bears the pop sensibility of the 60's British invasion, the sardonic wit of Elvis Costello, emotional poigniancy of Elliot Smith, and the Townes Van Zant- like turn of phrase. His lyrics are clever and biting, but can, in very few words, shatter the listeners heart .

Yes, man!
Great record! Brilliant songs, fantastic voice, what an atmosphere! And yes a CD to listen through from start to end. And how often can you say that about a CD? I love it!


Michael Trent C4m3 outt wif an albumm?! Itz sooooo gooooood!!!!1one!!!! By itz.


So good
The exact same swaggeringly brilliant type of lyrics and vocals as The Films, only this time in beautiful (slightly country- inspired?) folky- pop songs.

The downbeat and upbeat are perfectly balanced, no song feels like filler, and the whole thing is just all- around brilliant.

It's my (mostly pop music) girlfriend's new favourite album, and it's been one of mine (mostly pretentious indie, alternative, alt- country, and pitchfork- approved music) for a long time.

Great album.

Allen Martin

I loved his work with The Films before this, and this solo release just made me love his music even more. I can't stop listening to this album.


Amazing artist
This is an album that has close to 2,000 plays on my itunes. Got it in 2007 and I'm still in love with it.


wow its amazing, especially since I've had it for like six month now.

Jeff tta

Perfect. Just as I expected.

Michael Trent is a genius!
I\'ve been listening to The Films for a long time now, and it\'s quite obvious that frontman Michael Trent is a musical genius. His lyrics will grab you by the throat, slap you across the face, and then take advantage of you. With songs about love and tragety, no one is safe from this album\'s emotion-laden rollercoaster ride. Hopefully, this isn\'t the last we\'ll hear from Michael Trent.


absolutely fell in love with SITUATIONS but I love the other songs too!!
great! amazing! sweet! perrrrrfect!!!!

Bloody Genius!
Loved the Films, but Michael Trents' solo album just rocked! Absolutely loved it, it was bloody genius. Hope he makes another one. LOVE IT!!!
