Lonelyland [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mary Grady
Lonelyland is an entertaining, occasionally impressive effort that bodes well for singer/songwriter Bob Schnieder's future. The LP kicks off with "Metal and Steel," an acoustic number that is vaguely reminiscent of Paul Simon at his most Dylan-esque. Before the album is done, however, musical styles will twist and turn along the way, reminding one at times of everyone from Lenny Kravitz ("Jingy") to Bill Withers ("Bullets") to Elvis Costello-meets-Hootie & the Blowfish ("Better"). Schneider's lyrics speak of broken relationships, angst, and drug abuse, though there are hints of humor and happiness that shine through from time to time. Some of his imagery is awkward -- ...

Lonelyland is an entertaining, occasionally impressive effort that bodes well for singer/songwriter Bob Schnieder's future. The LP kicks off with "Metal and Steel," an acoustic number that is vaguely reminiscent of Paul Simon at his most Dylan-esque. Before the album is done, however, musical styles will twist and turn along the way, reminding one at times of everyone from Lenny Kravitz ("Jingy") to Bill Withers ("Bullets") to Elvis Costello-meets-Hootie & the Blowfish ("Better"). Schneider's lyrics speak of broken relationships, angst, and drug abuse, though there are hints of humor and happiness that shine through from time to time. Some of his imagery is awkward -- "Jingy" is about a metaphorical monkey on one's back, but the monkey sounds more like it's of the circus variety. Schneider needs to tame the occasional tendency to be too cute for his own good, both with his words and stylistically eclectic music. Apart from that flaw, the album is a pleasant, listenable set of adult alternative music. [The bonus-track edition adds three untitled tracks.]

    Singer/Songwriters unite!!!!!!!

    Bob Schneider falls in line with David Gray, Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, and Jeff Buckley. Each is a talented singer/songwriter with a unique sound. Schneider can sing as soft as a whisper, and then hit with his scruffy yet charming voice. Metal & Steel, and Round & Round are the two ''softer'' songs that radiate simplicity and grace in songwriting. Pick-up Lonelyland and enjoy from start to finnish.
