Peter Himmelman`s first new (non-kids) album in three years!
"Peter Himmelman`s longevity in the music business is proven by his multifaceted talent and having irons in many fires. His success began with the band Sussman Lawrence in his home state of Minnesota, grew into his solo material, his Grammy-winning children`s album, and his musical contributions to some of the most notable shows on the tube such as Bones, Men In Trees, and Judging Amy. It seems his creative spring flows swiftly." -- Ink 19
"A terrific singer-songwriter. Earnest and passionate, he has a sturdy melodic sense and deeply reflective lyrical bent adept at rooting out the toughest contradictions of everyday life and values." -- The Oregonian
"Musically the album is solid singer-songwriter, guitar driven stuff, with a couple of good detours. There` the aforementioned Trembling In the Beams that`s a nice piano ballad. And at the other end of the spectrum is Good Luck Charm that carries a hint of the Beastie Boys. In between is some good roots rock material like The Heart Of the Midnight Sun that` just relentless in the driving guitar and drums.
Although it won`t surprise any long-time Peter Himmelman listeners, this is music for people who appreciate a more intellectual approach to their lyrics. You`re just not going to hear anyone singing along with one of these tunes at the Friday night kegger. There`s quite a ride here and it takes a little work to keep up, but you`re rewarded with a rich textual collection of music and words that support why Himmelman has such a large and loyal base of fans." - Twangville.
