..tapping to a whole new beat
Spike | Earth | 08/08/2006

"....what was it Todd Snider said towards the end of that last album (East Nashville Skyline)?? "...I don't know when it will be, but the next time you see me I'll be tapping to a whole new beat.... walking souls into the holes of my shoes down the sunny side of the street..." --- this album is definately different, but it has my five stars, and that's after a hell of a lot've listens (downloaded it early on)... tunes that i skipped over early on, later becoming my favorites; new meanings coming from songs i thought i had wrapped up the purpose of; Todd takes the despicable characters and losers (some we feel for, others we loathe and abhor-)... i hear a little of todd's midtown memphis attitude coming back with this album, as well... just a little of that "what the hell-ever, man.." Every Todd Snider album is different, this one is no exception. No point in me listing my current favorites, give it a listen, they'll come to you as they must.... warning, though: i've known snider fans who expected an 'east nashville skyline,pt 2' who gave this one a single listen and then out, claiming to really dig 2, 3 songs and do without the rest... i take the stance that it is these 'rest', those that many todd fans will go 'what's this?', which can be the most powerful songs on the album with a second, third, fourth listen.... if 'east nashville' was todds 'bruised orange', i'm not saying this is 'pink cadillac', but i am saying it's about as different as john prine went direction-wise with those.... this album is really powerful, really, really a powerful set've songs with a little more attitude than we may have expected from Todd...."

"Todd Snider has a knack. Call it wit, call it wisdom, call it a few too many beers; whatever the case, he knows how to perfectly play upon the universal--but often overlooked--concept of irony. In a Snider song, everything is ironic...when you laugh you should be crying, when you're crying you should be laughing. You tap your toes and hum along...until you realize the song is about two criminals out for a little illegal fun. The good guys are never quite so good, and the bad guys ain't all that bad. Snider's characters are real people, in real situations, dealing with life as you or I would. It just so happens they have a narrator to tell their story.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW is a catchy, thought-provoking album, much like all of Snider's work. Starting with sin and ending with redemption (of a sort), Snider takes the listener on a ride through his twisted, interesting, and highly accurate concept of reality. Stories and humor abound; so does heartache and despair. And through it all, you have country/rock/blues arrangements that keep you--and the performers--glued to the ground. Todd Snider has crafted another masterful album; you don't want to pass this one buy, not if you like your music real, honest, and true. And perhaps a bit quirky.

"Will this guy ever get a freaking job!
I hope not cause he's too much fuuuun!
We'd miiss him like a long lost frieeend.

It's a long way to the top
if you want to sing your own songs!

I'm glad we made it!
It's been a long time comin'

Devil You Know has more great Todd Snider songs performed extremely well.
Nice coherent studio album
Consistent Quality
These same songs heard live are also very unique and satisfying.
The rocking songs done live in a more toned down acoustic style make the stock for these studio versions sky rocket.

Another Excellent Album By Todd Snider!
Highly Suggested Listening
Singing the Praises of Todd Snider!

"I've been a Todd Snider fan from the get-go, with his terrific debut disc, "Songs From the Daily Planet" to his new disc "The Devil You Know". Todd performs a great blend of folk, rock, country and really, if you think about it, spoken word. The guy has a great sense of humor and it shows in his music whether he does it deliberately or not. You'll get through this disc in about 40 minutes, short for this day in age, but you get a lot of bang for your buck. Highlights for me are "Looking for a Job", "Thin Wild Mercury", "Happy New Year" and the title track. But there are no clunkers here.

Get this, then get every other Todd Snider disc (even if you have to buy one or two of them from 3rd party sellers) because I guarantee you'll have a good time. I'm glad to see with appearances on Leno and Letterman this year that he's getting some national exposure, but the guy deserves a huge fan base.

But my even stronger recommendation is to get to one of his live shows. The stories he tells will have you rolling in the aisles before he has you singing in them!"
