a couple months back i was speaking w a beloved artist of a lot of us, who has been feature on here more than a few times, regarding cory branan. i had stated that i only really like about a quarter of his songs, at this point said artist called me crazy or something maybe worse, actually it was worse, but it was all in good fun. i was only being honest, and judging the man and his music by what i have heard up until that point. i should also mention, that my view of his music also criticized by more than a few people whose opinions i respect.
im willing to admit when i am wrong, or at least half way wrong cause that was before i heard his latest, and bloodshot debut, MUTT. im about 3/4 of the way through it, and by the time im done with this, im sure ill be finished. at this point im hearing what everyone had been preaching, but i for some reason had been missing out on. MUTT is a fantastic record, which is totally hard to nail down cause its definitely not what i expected from him. this is just judging by what i had heard up til this point. either way, best of 2012? i would say, yeah. could be quite the “grower” of the year.
MUTT is out this tuesday on bloodshot…..
