ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A collection of well-crafted, country-tinged pop gems."
- Gorillavsbear.net

"Stunning...it's not too often you hear a 10-track album and fall for each track on first listen. An assured a debut as I've heard."
- Absolute Powerpop (absolutepowerpop.blogspot.com)

"A little bit country, a little bit indie rock, which to us is the perfect mix...get wise to him."
- Dallas Morning News

"An endearingly fussy alt-country storyteller with a mind full of catchy melodies...a Dallas artist in the truest sense."
- Dallas Morning News

"...a cross between Ryan Adams and Elliot Smith...great songwriter and amazing sound."
- Radio Cure (musicyouneed.blogspot.com)

"A ragged, sloppy pop charmer from Texas...like its came from a session in the Westerberg basement [where] Ryan Adams and Tommy Keene showed up and everyone got laughing drunk."
- Americana-UK (www.americana-uk.com)

"...Ten beautiful and catchy songs that breath out authenticity, freshness, and emotion...without a doubt one of the greatest albums of this year."
- Sensaciones Sonoras (Spain) (www.lacoctelera.com/mr_pleasant)

"Top 25 Albums of 2006 (#24)."
- Absolute Powerpop (absolutepowerpop.blogspot.com)

"Wobbles on a thin rope that has been stretched between Paul Westerberg and Ryan Adams."
- Hanx (Belgium-based Americana site - www.hanx.net)

"Travis Hopper's signature country-indie rock blend...showcase[s] his style of songwriting that includes influences ranging from Sufjan Stevens to Bruce Springsteen."
- Bryan-College Station Eagle

"Solid indie rock...excellent debut album."
- Kontrastradio Germany (www.kontrastradio.net)

"...reminiscent of some of the golden goodies that were once spun on 70's AM radio...It's too real, too Texas, and too poppy for the market as it stands. Their loss is our gain."
- Scissor Socket Shocker Zine

"An accomplished songsmith...a tightly played, engaging set of high quality roots pop...conjures memories of early Freedy Johnston and perhaps Josh Rouse at times. A very promising start from another fresh talent, well worth keeping an eye on."
- Leicester Bangs

At home in rock and country
Around 2002, I was among a handful to hear this great (now defunct) band called the Americanos at a College Station, Texas music festival. I still have their EP CD. Travis Hopper was in that group, and one of his Americanos rockers (“Shoulda Been in Love”) is on this album All The Lights In The City Tonight. Hopper is firmly in the alternative country convention, crafting strong melodies that draw as much from rock and roll as traditional country. The ringing guitars rocking “Saturday Night Christmas Lights” would sound at home on the latest Tom Petty or MGMT recording. Quieter tunes like “Wildfire” and “I’d Like to Have You Here” ring truer than current country fare like faves Lady Antebellum. Hopper’s tremulous yet firm vocals, matched with his crackerjack band and supple songs, make for an enjoyable listening experience.
