Where the Humans Eat

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tammy La Gorce
The first thought that registers a few bars into Willy Mason's Where the Humans Eat is, no way is this guy 19. That's the claim on the promotional materials, though, and a glance at the boyishly disheveled singer/songwriter on his website says fair enough. Still, Mason's is a voice that fuses influences so at odds with adolescence and gawky youth -- hints of Alejandro Escavedo's dirt-road anguish surface alongside flecks of Johnny Cash's stoic resignation -- that accepting it as the product of someone barely legal is impossible; outright denial is required. But make the effort. Songs like the countercultural anthem "Oxygen," with its heart-on-a-sleeve confessions about ...

But make the effort. Songs like the countercultural anthem "Oxygen," with its heart-on-a-sleeve confessions about the desire to be "better than oxygen" and "cooler than TV" will resonate for anybody who has preserved the instinct to grow weary in the face of convention, and "Hard Hand to Hold" plays like an anthem for Marlboro men looking to reclaim their inner boy scouts. This is the folky, bluesy, jangly-guitar-slinging sound of somebody who has made a practice of walking in boots three sizes too big for so long that they finally fit, and it delivers enough promise to inspire big ideas about what could happen when he outgrows them.

    Incredible.

    So simple, yet intriguing. Willy Mason is an old soul, with an old voice, trapped in a 19 year old body. "Still A Fly" is my absolute favorite on the album. I can't help but listen to it over and over and over again in my car, and I sing along without even noticing I learned the lyrics. Definitely buy this if you are considering.

    Watch out, Willy's coming

    A simple voice, indicative of his Martha's Vineyard upbringing. Willy Mason shines here on his debut CD with tight, unaffected live sounding cuts. Each one a tribute to the perspective of youth and the voice this generation is cultivating. Not a shiny perfect disc in that it shys away from over-production. It is Willy in your living room, in the passenger seat of your car, in your heart. I know this young man and his music is indeed an accurate reflection of his spirit. If you like sparse and unique, you will love this disc as well as his earlier EP.
