Momentary Setback

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Joseph McCombs
Momentary Setback is undeniably a strange choice for the title of one's debut release, hardly suggesting a vote of self-confidence. Yet this first release from southern Louisiana native Marc Broussard is brimming with confidence and self-assurance. Broussard sounds many, many years older than he was at the time of the album's recording, bearing a gritty, at times ferocious delivery that seems to channel street spirits. Or more likely, the spirits of still-kicking blues-rockers like John Hiatt and Delbert McClinton, or perhaps the bayou's own Dr. John.

Momentary Setback is undeniably a strange choice for the title of one's debut release, hardly suggesting a vote of self-confidence. Yet this first release from southern Louisiana native Marc Broussard is brimming with confidence and self-assurance. Broussard sounds many, many years older than he was at the time of the album's recording, bearing a gritty, at times ferocious delivery that seems to channel street spirits. Or more likely, the spirits of still-kicking blues-rockers like John Hiatt and Delbert McClinton, or perhaps the bayou's own Dr. John. Producer Marshall Altman, himself a heartland rock veteran via his short-lived band Farmer, intuitively understands Broussard's growling, road-worn inclinations, and gives him just the right framework in which to explore them. Key to the sound is Shawn Carter's magnificently textured organ, and his clavinet playing, shining most brightly on "Just Like That" and "Blue Jeans." It's not a modern sound, but it's the right sound. Momentary Setback isn't as much fun in the second half when it takes a decidedly more spiritual bent, but this recording presents Broussard as a talented songwriter and storyteller, and an astonishingly gifted and unique vocalist.

    You'll see Marc at the Top

    This is a great CD! I had the chance to see Marc live at a Maroon 5 concert and I just adored him! He is an incredible artist and a joy to speak to! I went up to him at the end of his concert and asked if he could sign my Maroon 5 shirt and replied "I can't do that" I soon answered with "but, it's my birthday and I don't have any more money" suddenly he grapped one of his CD's signed it and grabbed me for a hug. Needless to say he's not only is a great muscian but also a great person! Give this CD a chance and I'm sure will fall for it and him just like I did! And if he is ever in ur town the live performance is just as good if not better then th CD!
