Daniel Cirera - Honestly, I Love You *cough* Review

by Gary Schwind

.
A while back, Country Music Television did a special about the greatest "done me wrong" songs. While this is not the stuff of CMT, you'd have a hard time finding a harsher "done me wrong" song than the opening track of this CD, "Motherf*cker-fake vegetarian ex-girlfriend." Yeah, it's pretty much what you'd expect. He has quite a few unsavory things to say about his ex-girlfriend, probably the tamest of which is that she calls herself a vegetarian, but he's seen her eat meat a couple of times.

"She Rules the School" somehow reminds me of Pulp. I think it's subtle but it's there. Perhaps it's the combination of mellow guitar and dancy keyboard sounds. In any case, this song will probably get your head moving a little bit.

"She Rules the School" is followed by the folky "sorry, SORRY, sorry," which features acoustic guitar, piano and harmonica. This is just a really good tune.

"1992" is another song whose title says a lot. In this son, Cirera catalogs the music and pop culture of the year I graduated high school. He mentions Madonna, TLC, Faith No More, Pearl Jam and The Lemonheads, among other things. Boy this song really takes me back…although I don't really need to be reminded of Madonna.

"Why" is another song about heartbreak. In this song, Cirera wonders "Why did you give yourself to somebody else?" It's a beautiful song, featuring what might be the best piano part on the album.

Have you ever wondered what a folksy version of "Anarchy in the UK" might sound like? Well, if you check out this album, you'll know. Cirera delivers a folksy, almost loungy version of the Sex Pistols classic.

This is a really solid album. Cirera pours out all his emotions in songs that are simple (albeit not always understated) and easy to listen to. If you're pissed about a relationship gone wrong, this is definitely an album you should add to your collection.
