GREAT record, but what's up w/ the pricing?

eMusic - you need to adjust the pricing of your records.

eMusic Continues To Slide

ccsbandwagon

Agree. 27 downloads for this one album when there are a slew of short tracks? You're also charging 19 downloads for "Is the Actor Happy?" Not only did you cut my downloads in half, but you then promised 12 downloads per album, which you've now broken. Guess that's what happens when you're owned by a group with "Capital" in the name. Time to bail.

Clowns?

Emusic brainstrust, why discourage people from downloading this fantastic album by an artist you claim is great by charging punters full whack for a 12 second song? You are ripping your loyal punters right OFF!!!

They Say All Music Guide

Released barely a year after West of Rome but recorded with an almost entirely different cast of musicians (only Scott Stuckey remains, promoted from engineer to producer), Drunk is further proof of the remarkable creative streak Vic Chesnutt was running in the early ’90s. The album was primarily recorded over the course of a three-day weekend at a rural farmhouse owned by Stuckey’s aunt, with Chesnutt playing guitar and multi-instrumentalist Rob Veal playing nearly everything else, giving the album the same consistency of sound and vision as Chesnutt’s debut, Little, but with a newfound rock & roll directness. Chesnutt’s first album with as many electric guitars as acoustic, Drunk features some of his finest songwriting, particularly on the opening rocker, “Sleeping Man,” the catchiest and most memorable song Chesnutt had yet recorded, and a simply lovely musical setting of Stevie Smith’s poem “One of Many.” (In a bit of a cheat, “Sleeping Man” is reprised toward the album’s end, the exact same recording fortified with overdubbed vocals by Syd Straw and slide guitar from John Keane.) Other highlights include the goofy “Super Tuesday,” a brief workout for Fender Rhodes and ukulele, and “When I Ran Off and Left Her” and “Kick My Ass,” two songs that show how even more pointedly autobiographical Chesnutt’s lyrics were becoming. Chesnutt has said that the album’s title refers to his own level of inebriation during the sessions, which he refers to in the scribbled liner notes as “a party for three days,” but this is ironically his most focused work so far. Drunk was Chesnutt’s first record for the major-label-affiliated Caroline Records, yet it seemed to pass under the radar compared to his earlier indie releases; it was reissued in 2004 by New West, with the addition of nine bonus tracks recorded between 1992 and 1994, including the beautifully affecting “Lillian Gish,” a live take on Bob Dylan’s “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine,” and an early version of “Gravity of the Situation,” from 1995′s Is the Actor Happy? – Stewart Mason
