I was very fortunate that Mr Scott sent me a "rough draft" so to speak of this CD awhile back.It is gritty and full of the things that life throws at us...I simply loved it and shared it with a few friends, who liked it as well. I
have all been waiting for the final cut (so to speak) to be released...
If you liked Fallen from Grace, your going to love this one...

Mark Lee Scott returns with a strong sophomore album
If you're a fan of the acclaimed HBO television series "Deadwood," then you may have heard Mark Lee Scott's very perfect song "Fallen from Grace," the title track to his debut album, during the closing credits to episode 4, "Here was a Man." If you bought the soundtrack, then you may agree with me that it was the best song on the disc. Scott's debut album in its entirety was just as strong and satisfying as that single track.

Now in 2009, Mark Lee Scott returns with a second album of all-new material, bringing his distinctive vocals and songwriting style back in 13 fantastic songs. Starting with the excellent “House of Pain,” a song very stylistically similar to his debut’s closing track “Fallen from Grace,” and therefore a great segue into the new album, Scott then proceeds to expand his songwriting to reach new sounds and new directions with his music. While he continues to keep the instrumentation spare and put more importance into the songwriting than into the production, the songs this time are overall a little shorter and a little tighter than on his debut, and the sound a little lighter as well. This is in part due to the use of some brighter chords in songs like “Mother, Why Did You Leave?” and “I’ve Seen Better Days,” but is also thanks in part to the inclusion of two up-tempo tracks this time around, “Beat Down, Torn & Naked,” and “The Dawn Before.” Scott seems happier this time around, singing not just for the love of the music, but for the fun of the music. It’s a sentiment that we can all feel as we move from song to song and let him spin his tales for us.

It’s refreshing to know that music like this is still being sung today, as it imparts not only a feeling of nostalgia in the listener, but a feeling of innocence. Midway through the album in “Time Just Slips Away,” Mark Lee Scott reminds us of why his musical voice is important, and why it’s best to keep things meaningful, just like his music. It’s an outlook that one can’t help but feel that Scott fully believes in himself: “love your lover and sing your songs, ‘cause life’s but a minute and then it’s gone…before you know it, the time just slips away.”
