Ol' Will
I've been in Portland for 20 years, this is one of the first bands I discovered when I moved here and am have followed the evolution ever since. It's always fresh, always engaging, and the musicianship is always top shelf. This album will appeal to you if you only like ALL of the following: rock and roll, good songwriting, Old English.
Once again, Michael and Rene exhibit their prowess on keys, drums, and everything else they play, which i believe is just about everything..
The point- Meaning of word. We can probably all agree that good rock and roll music has nothing to do with words, there are many insipid words tied to classic rock songs... Sometimes you have a lyricist who is weaving in some cool words with this rock and roll, like Jim Morrison or countless others... but it's NOT A REQUIREMENT to have cool words in order to be a great rock song. Now what they have done is to make sure that all of the words on this album are IMPORTANT, because they are DEEP. Ol' Will is, even after all these centuries, still the consummate expert on the human condition.


Shakespeare Shook Up
I'm a fan -- this is the fourth HCE cd in my collection. This band is the real deal. They have the range and imagination and talent to give Shakespeare's words a new, rhythmic, raucous life. Each song gets a unique treatment, and blends the text seamlessly with HCE's 21st century sounds. This CD is a winner, and a keeper!
