Mine and Yours

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tami Johansson
The precise genealogy is sketchy, but the arrival of David Mead marks the fourth or fifth or sixth generation of post-Beatles purveyors. For fans of the Fab Four's followers -- from Badfinger, the Raspberries, and Big Star to Marshall Crenshaw, Matthew Sweet, and Aimee Mann -- this is good news indeed. With a supple voice that often sounds like the love child of Paul McCartney and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn, and a seemingly endless supply of sharply hooked melodies, Mead's second effort, Mine and Yours, recalls all the aforementioned and others. With the help of producer Adam Schlesinger, the pop-scholar mastermind of Fountains of Wayne, Mead cloaks classic ...

Barnes & Noble - Tami Johansson
The precise genealogy is sketchy, but the arrival of David Mead marks the fourth or fifth or sixth generation of post-Beatles purveyors. For fans of the Fab Four's followers -- from Badfinger, the Raspberries, and Big Star to Marshall Crenshaw, Matthew Sweet, and Aimee Mann -- this is good news indeed. With a supple voice that often sounds like the love child of Paul McCartney and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn, and a seemingly endless supply of sharply hooked melodies, Mead's second effort, Mine and Yours, recalls all the aforementioned and others. With the help of producer Adam Schlesinger, the pop-scholar mastermind of Fountains of Wayne, Mead cloaks classic textures in chiming, modern contexts. The title track, for instance, quotes the signature double slide guitar of Todd Rundgren's "I Saw the Light" a sound that Rundgren picked up while producing "Day After Day" for the original Beatle babies, Badfinger -- who, fittingly enough, copped the technique from George Harrison himself. The catchy "Standing Here in Front of Me" borrows the throb of Richard Thomspon's "Misunderstood" and the sweetly mournful delivery of Crowded House's "Four Seasons in One Day" two songs produced, perhaps not coincidentally, by Mitchell Froom. As you can see, Mine and Yours will inspire hours of fun "spot the influence" games, but it also might keep listeners from fully appreciating Mead's own melodic ability. When he abandons referencing the past for driving songs like "Echoes of the Heart," his considerable strengths -- hummable verses, unstoppable choruses, tasty guitar figures -- are hard to miss.
All Music Guide - Brett Hartenbach
With his sophomore release, the Adam Schlesinger Fountains of Wayne produced Mine and Yours, David Mead proves that his stellar 1999 debut, The Luxury of Time, was no fluke. And while there's nothing here as immediately irresistible as, for instance "World of a King" from its predecessor, a couple of listens reveals the same mix of sophisticated, intelligent songcraft and pure pop delight. Mead is the consummate songwriter, much in the tradition of John Lennon and Paul McCartney or Paul Simon, creating timeless, memorable melodies that are fresh and inventive, while still ringing with a certain, inviting familiarity. Nearly every piece is meticulously put together, from the rich, textured arrangements to Mead's thoughtful lyrics: intricate, engaging tunes and warm, captivating tenor. Schlesinger's production follows the same basic idea used on The Luxury of Time, but with even more of an emphasis on the classic pop elements in Mead's songs. Mine and Yours, with cuts such as the dreamy melancholy of "Comfort," the buoyant '60s pop of "Girl on the Roof," and the infectious, rocking title track, shows Mead to be one of the best pop songwriter/performers to come along in quite a while.

    I can't stop listening!

    I think this is the best album I've bought all year.

    must read review!!

    It wasn¿t until recent did I start listening to David Mead¿s music. For the longest time I have followed the crowd and listened to what everyone else considered great music and never gave thought to what I considered great music. It was David Mead¿s, ¿Comfort¿, that drew me into his second album, Mine and Yours. While his music is a contemporary blend of some legendary influences such as Elvis Costello and John Lennon, he has also created a unique style that has the ability to influence many young aspiring musicians. His songwriting fits the contemporary style framed by a classic touch, and supported by a strong voice that represents honesty, reality, intelligence and cunningness. Before I bought his music, I took the liberty to learn more about him and his music at www.click2music.com/davidmead . You can hear two of his latest songs, ¿Comfort¿ and ¿Mine and Yours¿, and read his biography. Who knows maybe after visiting this site, you¿ll find yourself a new favorite artist. I¿d love to know what you think, write me.
