Best Album of 2009

It would totally be cheating to say Beer and Pie? Right? Right?

Beer and Pie Album Cover

Because, let’s face it. My debut full-length album is kindof awesome. I know that this is true, because my Mom bought five copies. Which is so crazy, right? Most people only need to buy one copy of a CD. Less, if you have access to Bit Torrent. Which I can’t in any way, shape or form condone. Unless you just want to Paypal me ten bucks and then get your pirate on. I’m cool with that.

In non-shameless-self-promotion world, I would have to say that my favorite album of this year would have to be Ellis Paul’s The Day After Everything Changed. I got my copy when I attended a songwriting workshop with him at the beginning of November.

I put my copy into the CD player of my truck on my way home from class and I don’t think that I took it out for a solid three weeks. Ellis Paul is a master songwriter and this album is no exception. The production values are a little on the slick side, but the album has a real heart and soul. “Hurricane Angel” just might be one of my new favorite songs. In fact, I do believe that it is.

This is a great album for singing along to in the car. Or, in my case, an awesome truck.

A+++ album. Would listen to again.

And again.

(And again and again and again and again and again).

  • Haha! You should ABSOLUTELY say yourself! That means you did it right. 😉

  • Dear ________,

    As someone who’s written wonderful words about the great music coming from singer songwriter Ellis Paul – first I’d like to tell you thank you. I’ve been Ellis Paul’s friend and manager since 1992 and his music, words and friendship are jewels in my life. Upon examining the state of the music industry, Ellis and I have realized that far and away the most important connections that we have are not at all on the business side of the equation – it’s the people that love Ellis’ music. They’re more important than the biggest retailer or the most powerful radio station – so we’re starting a campaign to empower the people. Ellis’ new album “The Day After Everything Changed” was completely funded by his fans and is one of the finest he’s ever recorded. Many of Ellis’ fans and folks passionate about great songwriting don’t even know that it’s been released. So if you’d like to help support a truly independent artist – here’s how. The lead single track on TDAEC is “Annalee”, and if you go to http://www.ellispaul.com/free you can download “Annalee” for free. Unlike so many other free song offers – you don’t have to give us your email, sign up or register for anything at all. It’s free for the taking. The small favor we would ask? Please share it with any and all of your friends that would enjoy Ellis’ music. This would help our efforts and help spread the music. This truly is a campaign about the power of the people in the support of independent music and artists.

    Please stay in touch.

    And thank you.

  • […] you will probably remember that Ellis Paul’s album, The Day After Everything Changed, was my favorite album of 2009. I’m assuming that about zero of you fit this description, so I will reiterate. Ellis […]
