According to his bio, David Aaron had his beginnings as a musician playing the saxophone and exploring big band and bebop. I can assure you that this album has nothing to do with big band or bebop.
The album begins with "The Mourning," which is a pretty good taste of what follows. This is an industrial rock song with a vocal quality similar to Mike Doughty and a pretty heavy message.
"Mr. Sam," like many other songs on this disc has a distinct political message. Toward the end of the song, whose sound reminds me of God Lives Underwater, there is a sample of someone talking about arms, wars, and a "fear campaign."
The first few seconds of "SWOJ" sound like Aaron is going to launch into a traditional Irish tune. The Irish influence is short-lived, but the song is still different from all of the songs that precede it. This is an acoustic song that features harmonica, whistling, and harmony vocals toward the end. The lead vocals in this song remind me of Everlast. This is a good example of Aaron's ability as a songwriter.
Aside from the keyboards on "Advancement," David Aaron plays all the instruments on this album. You have to give it up for anyone that can pull that off. Not only does he play all the instruments, he fills each song with a pretty hard-hitting message. Consider this from "Advancement." "Knock down forests for pharmaceutical buildings, and yet they can outlaw plants." See, I wasn't kidding about the hard-hitting message. If that's the sort of message you look for in your music, then this CD is for you. David Aaron is a talented musician and songwriter. I expect he'll grab some attention with this album.
