CD REVIEW: Stuart McNair - I Can't See Over The Acordion
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Stuart McNair
Genre: Alternative
CD Review:
Would you believe there are 24 very varied songs in an hour's worth of cd here? Alternative, I guess, but not the in your face or annoying kind, so perhaps call it a new genre: Individual. A stand out tune for me is 'Michael Nesmith' because the lyrics certainly define that famous Monkee. Heck, the cd even ends on a weird mix of it, 'Nesmith #9', so you know he's got the hots for this ruling genius. Track 12 is an odd, stereo-crackly 'Intermission', much like something Monty Python might put smack dab in the middle of an action scene. Stuart is destined for alternative greatness, if he keeps pushing songs like 'Girlfriend Song', in which he says it's okay not to have a girlfriend because you can smell bad and be rude. Then again, it sucks not to have a girlfriend, because you can take her to a scary movie and hold her hand when she's frightened. That's Stuart too. He's a multi-instrument player with a nice, soft voice and a grand sense of humor. Grin before you listen to the cd it will save time.
