ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pat Buchanan has an unflinching love for melody and the ability to honestly deliver them with a warm wistfulness best earned by experience. Pat erupted from the gate in 1999 with the Idle Jets' "Atomic Fireball" which sounds pretty much like you'd expect it to with a title like that; high-energy pop songs delivered with a laugh and a nod over the shoulder. 2002 saw the release of Pat's first "true" solo record (Idle Jets was all but a solo project performed by a band), a balanced, lush exploration of everything between romping rockers and orchestral chamber pop. Pat's third (or second) effort "St George" expands upon the framework set by the previous records; heavier rockers and dreamier pop.
"St George" eases in with "Sweet Amnesia", sounding irresistibly Henry Mancini and Brian Wilsonesque at the same time, setting the stage for possibly the flashiest pop Buchanan has yet delivered â€" "I Can't Worry". Backed by his live band (the um... Idle Jets, actually), Pat's confidence is palpable and arresting. Some of the tunes are half-awake love songs ("The Fairest of Seasons", "Count the Ways"), some are graceful-yet-bombastic rockers ("Halo", "The Same Tree", "We'll Talk") and some mine territory not yet explored on Pat's records â€" he almost evokes Muswell Hillbillies-era Kinks for a moment on the expertly-penned "Patience", XTC on "For What It Was" and the unavoidable Macca on a near-handful of his strongest songs.

Pat is the Best Guitarist I've Ever Worked With
I love this CD. Of course I love anything Pat Buchanan does. We used to work the same clubs in Atlanta back in the 80's...and he happened to be in town following his stint with Hall and Oates and I was lucky enough to get him in the studio.
Pat you seriously changed my life musically...that session was the beginning of a life appreciating the beauty of the guitar, and to this day, you are always the measuring stick for how I determine who is really a good guitarist.
These songs are great. You owe it to yourself to order this and enter the world of Pat Buchanan. Who knows, maybe one day you and I can catch up Pat. All my love- Robert Duncan

I think it is great. I didn't expect it to have vocals, pleasantly surprised !
The CD is great. Reminds me a lot of the Beatles..nice songs, music voice. I usually prefer new age, no words, but this was great !

Another solidly great Pat Buchanan album.
Hey everyone,

You're going to F@#%ing LOVE this CD!! Get the small order of fries and give up the designer coffee for a few days and use the money to buy this CD. This is NOT yet another lame attempt to recreate something that sounds like Revolver but sounds more like the entire USA Today list of Worst Songs Ever Recorded. Those people should be hit about the face and head with a tube sock full of wood screws.

Seriously, this is a GOOD album. Fear not that you're buying some amateurish sounding piece of crap whose only purpose is to fill a space on your shelf of shame next to other impulse buys like El DeBarge's Greatest Hit (notice the singular). Pat is a tremendously talented musician and singer. I bet even Simon Cowell would like him.

Pat explores some new and thoroughly enjoyable musical territory here. There's more of an eclectic mix of instrumentation than the usual guitar, bass and drums combo. With songs like Sweet Amnesia, Fairest of Seasons and Sad Genie he gets into some really cool arrangements that make room for things like clarinets, harmoniums, flutes, cellos and even full string sections. "Patients" sounds like it could either be from a 1970s Paul Williams soundtrack or a Harry Nilsson album. It's just guilty fun. Go ahead, have some.

At first I was a little disappointed not to see Brad Jones' name on this new album but Pat's created something that's every bit as great as his last album as well as the Idle Jets CD.

BTW, I really wish the credits for the song "Halo" were included. It's such a great performance I'd love to know who played drums and mixed this thing. Best mix on the album, IMHO.

Another excellent album from Pat.
