Beautiful and Dangerous

RayC

That's a phrase from Beautiful World and it hooked me. In an era when I've very disillusioned with this company, I still went hunting for everything I could find by this man. Strangely, his voice reminds me of the guy on the Angel tv series who played Lorne, except he's not gay and doesn't sing showtunes. From listening to the rest of his music, I would say the heart and soul of his music is so real it makes this old man want more of This Beautiful Life and anything else Ellis Paul writes and sings.

Ellis is one of the great songwriters of our time

This album is nothing short of breathtaking. From the opening track to the last song, not a single one lets you out of its grasp. Ellis' interesting and original chord progressions are outdone only by his marvelous lyrics that suck you right into the scene he is depicting. Sweet Mistakes along with his latest Live from Eddie's Attic are a must have for any folk fan! www.ellispaul.com

I am telling everyone I know about Ellis Paul, I can't get enough of his music. Seventeen Septembers is one of my favorite songs. Download this one if you like good music!

They Say All Music Guide

During an uncharacteristically long four-year period between major-studio releases, Ellis Paul quietly offered this web-sales-only assortment of new recordings to his patient fan base. “This is not a concept album,” he warned in the liner notes, “This is a collection of demos, ideas, experiments…with noises and choices that might not survive onto a label album.” At the core of the album are four tracks recorded at an Atlanta studio that subsequently burned down, taking the master recordings with it and unexpectedly turning Paul’s unfinished demos into finished products. But it’s doubtful that extensive alterations would have been necessary. All four songs are reasonably polished and richly produced folk-pop efforts. The title track especially seems radio-ready and instantly ranks among Paul’s best. (It was, in fact, used as is in the Gwyneth Paltrow comedy Shallow Hal.) The techno and hip-hop-influenced “Martyr’s Lounge” and “The 20th Century Is Over” are risky experiments for Paul, but they are both surprisingly successful. Other experiments, like the anthemic remix of “3,000 Miles” and the Jayhawks-style countrified “Roll Away Bed,” are less noteworthy. But such daring stylistic excursions are balanced by the fine, straight-up folk arrangements on “Kristian’s Song” and “Medicine.” On the whole, the record leaves the impression that Paul is getting even better as a writer of philosophically optimistic, tightly melodic contemporary folk music, while losing none of his command over that dynamic silken tenor. – Evan Cater
