Default Paul Baribeau


First of all this album is 5 dollars ppd. So if you like it buy it [you cheap ass bastard]. It's on Plan-it-X. This is surely something so refreshing in the world of singer-songwriters. Much more appealing than those other Michigan artists [those of course being Sufjan and Andrew Bird, I much prefer this junk]. Definitely fitting for Plan-it-X but not something you'd necessarily expect from them. This doesn't sound like one of those albums where the guy has been playing an acoustic set since he was 15 years old. I mean the overdone riffs and chord progressions are far and few between if they're anywhere to be found at all. It has that feel that he wants to play in full band but doesn't have the time or the friends. I like stuff that leaves something to the imagination and which every song I kind of wonder how a plugged version would sound. The lyrics are personal, seem sincere enough random, fun, sad and other sorts of stuff. It's clear he's not a one trick pony and well I like it. And it's always a good thing when you can't off the top of your head compare vocal approach with anyone else. My favorite tracks are I thought I could Find You, Strawberry, Blue Eyes and The Pier but I aint shitting you when I say I love every track. I've listened to this album more or less every day for the past two week and I'm really hoping to see him live in two weeks. I'm a crazy sucker for minimilist album art. These are catchy, easy swallow and slightly insightful sing alongs.

That was from my ignored thread so there it goes reposted. Grand Ledge is also damn good. I'll post it if someone wants it. I saw him a week ago and it was one of the best things ever. I plan on seeing him again in like two weeks.

Is it actually like Sufjan? Because I can't stand him, and I can't get into Andrew Bird either.

All they really share is a state and the title of songwriter. I just think both of the others get a little more than they're worth and I sweat this guy a whole lot. Not really similar to Madeline but most people who like her like Paul.

Nah, it's not really like Sufjan, vocals kinda reminded me of Daniel Johnston a tad. Strawberry and Blue Eyes are really good.

Hes good, vocally hes like a tame Daniel Johnston, I don't know if thats good or bad. Sometimes Johnston is a bit woh, but hes a better guitarist and lyricist. I liked Brown Brown Brown and Jordan best. I wish Jordan was longer though it was a pretty 30 seconds.

If I didn't know any better I'd think that he only owns plain green and purple t-shirts.
