to write a review


I'm still listening to this album. This is an artist worth listening to.


Third Cd and still going strong. Intelligent and different lyrics. Not as an instant liking for as his earlier CDs but it just gets better and better with each listen.

Jason A. Thomas

A timely, complex album
Bob Hillman's tertiary album--to use a little Hillman-esque vocabulary--sums up the times very well. "Celebrating Nothing," presumably a song about 2005, captures the shallowness of American society in this era. "Have You Heard...Priest" has a Bob Dylan feel to it, with stinging, dark references to a wide variety of subjects, including business, religion, and greed. "Secret Handshake" may resonnate with people who feel like outsiders in the 21st Century economy and power-structure, which often rewards "who you know" rather than "what you know." "Light-Hearted Years" is touching and sad, but with a positive message about someone avoiding despair. The title song "If You Lived Here..." is a song of yearning for the down-to-earth and sincere nature of life away from showbiz and the simple-minded glamor of southern California. (Not long ago, my brother experienced a similar journey after moving from the San Diego area to the cultural city of Asheville, North Carolina.) As with Hillman's other work, I highly recommend this CD.
