Eric Anders- More Regrets
by Greg Howell

In just his second full length album, Eric Anders is already being touted as one of the best singer\songwriters of today. Upon hearing More Regrets, you realize that this praise is definitely warranted. 

On Anders’ More Regrets courtesy of, Baggage Room Records, the former University of Florida teacher, and therapist takes a darker path than he did on his second album. It’s a bit more eclectic than his previous work and provides a better experience for the listener.

The album opens with "Song 79", Eric Anders writes of the writer’s lament, or what it would be like to not be able to write. He warns that he doesn’t write about the topics that others’ write and if he didn’t write he would “flail for some time.”

Skip forward to track 5, "More Regrets", and on the title track Anders laments a breakup from a serious relationship. The type of relationship where you’ve become so detached from each other that you’re just going through the motions. Anders apparently moved on with, “Then You and I we knew something else was comin’.”

And those times where you feel like what you’re going through is the worst time in your life and no one could understand? Eric Anders has a song for that too. "Practiced Isolation"(6), takes the point of view of the friend who sees the person going through the heartache and wants to help but the other person just won’t let them in. “You fight alone with yourself, All your meditation is just practiced isolation.” Anders laments.

Caught your loved one in a lie? Eric Anders has and on "You Lied"(8), he tells the loved one that he caught her lying that he’s not taking her back. He takes the offensive and tells them that it will “be on a lonely path if you don’t ever face your ghosts.”

On the tenth track, "Unhappy Like Ulysses", Anders parallels missing a loved one who has gone away to that of Homer’s Ulysses. He likens himself to Circes and his departed loved one to Ulysses, and how hard it is to wait for them to come back.

Clocking in at 47 minutes, More Regrets seems to go by too quickly. Anders writes some dark and at time edgy lyrics, but they are lyrics that we can all identify with. More Regrets isn’t lite fare and I don’t know if I would recommend this to everyone, but if you, or you know someone who digs Elliot Smith, Nick Drake etc, get a copy of More Regrets.
