Overview

I'm Good Now is quite varied, echoing several singer/songwriter traditions. You can hear traces of Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen, and Van Morrison here and there, though laced with a sort of American heartland rock & roll spirit not found too abundantly in any of those figures, other than possibly Springsteen. In fact, sometimes there's a sense that you might be listening to a compilation album, the record moving from fairly slick, earnest mainstream rock and more anthemic, alternative-minded stuff to near-folk ("A Long Way to Get"), country-laced outlaw narrative (the title track), crunchy hard rock ("C'mon Baby"), studly funk humor ("Capn Kirk"), and white boy hip-hop-tinged rock ("Getting Better"). The songs are pretty verbose, without conveying much specific other than the sense of a guy rolling with the punches, one day at a time, sometimes with an observational sense of humor that falls short of knee-slapping. What this lacks, other than a set identity, is much of an individual voice, drawing extensively on tested rock singer/songwriter forms without adding much of note to them. The only big surprise on the record is when an unidentified ballad plays as a hidden track after a minute or so of silence following "Getting Better," the last song listed on the sleeve.

Well... what can I say? - Got the album today and its amazing! I've been a big fan of Bob Schneider’s for a while now and although I love his previous works this album just takes everything to the next level! The first track on here "Come With me tonight" is my favorite, full of emotion and atmosphere it kicks everything off perfectly, setting the tone straight away, truly special! I guess the best way I can describe the album, as a whole is to say that it oozes with honesty. It's mellow yet powerful and vibrant, full of melody and full of great songs... a definite must have!
