Ray Lamontagne Reviews

Ray LaMontagne has somehow managed to make competing arguments for himself as both the luckiest and the least fortunate man in show business. On one hand, his 2004 debut album, Trouble, has proven to have legs in a way that I don't think anyone expected back in the day. Sure, the record was always critically acclaimed, but did anyone think that the title track was going to be performed multiple times on American Idol? In the show's heyday, no less...

With his breakthrough track, "Trouble", off the album of the same name, Ray LaMontagne made a distinctive name for himself in the music industry as a unique, soulful singer/songwriter with an acoustic and raw sound. But it has been more than 10 years since the cult favourite of folk, roots and classic rock fans released the emotive track, which turned decades-old blues and soul usages into an unlikely hit...

WHEN RAY LAMONTAGNE'S Beg Steal Or Borrow was Grammy-nominated in the Song Of The Year category back in 2010, your scribe was surprised. Good as that tune was, surely the real doozy on LaMontagne's fourth album, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise , was Like Rock & Roll And Radio? Exquisitely sung, the song set gradual estrangement from one's lover alongside daytime radio's increasing indifference to pop music's greatest form, an odd juxtaposition that was intensely moving...

Terrific hooks and classy songwriting ... Ray Lamontagne With his top 5 2004 debut, Trouble, Ray Lamontagne enjoyed the kind of success that doesn't often greet shy purveyors of melancholy Americana. However, for this fifth album - produced by knob-twiddler du jour, the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach - beardy sounds have surprisingly been replaced by psychedelic pop...

Ray LaMontagne is arguably part of the current wave of talented, root-rock artists who are thriving in a commercial atmosphere where many fans are seeking a respite from digitized percussion, Auto-tuned voices, and cold synth atmospheres. LaMontagne released his first major label record in 2004 and had success: an appearance on the rootsy launching pad Austin City Limits and 500,000 in record sales. Releases followed every two years until 2010...

It seems like Ray LaMontagne is experimenting on his fifth studio record. Not in the way that's often described with such neutral designations as "maturing" or "emotional growth." Rather, Supernova sounds like a foray into the exploratory sonic terrains created by those who simply can. After four albums of rustic folksiness and unadulterated acoustica, LaMontagne traveled to Nashville to work with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach on the recording and production of Supernova ...

On the strength of the hit "Beg Steal Or Borrow," Ray LaMontagne's fourth record, God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise , was a commercial success and eventual Grammy winner, though critics (somewhat unfairly) dismissed the album as uneven, unfocused, and unadventurous. In the four years since, LaMontagne has taken these appraisals to heart--the new Supernova is a surprisingly bold, enterprising follow-up from an artist who could have easily ridden out the rest of his career on adult-alternative...

With his impeccably weathered tenor croon and mastery of Seventies singer-songwriterisms, Ray LaMontagne can often seem in danger of disappearing into his beard. So it's a blessing that he connected with producer Dan Auerbach for his fifth album. Predictably, Auerbach helps the singer pull bright colors from the Sixties' crayon box; less predictably, he makes it seem a perfectly logical progression of LaMontagne's 10-plus years of cozy vibes...

Since 2004, Ray LaMontagne, who might get unfairly pinned down as just another bearded folkie, has put out a string of resonant and emotional records, each with songs that range from the best of the folk/pop genre, to songs that skim influence from the finest 60s soul and R&B. God Willin' and the Creek Don't Rise is a departure from that influence, and is a turn to a more traditional folk-rock record...
