Broken Halo
Review By Dave Rubin

"The blues at its inception following the Civil War was a solitary art form. One man with his banjo, harmonica or guitar expressing his deepest feelings as virtually the only way to make sense of the world. In time blues musicians banded together to expand the parameters, and amplification and electronic effects later on would provide additional means of producing music of lasting cultural value. As a side project after some 26 years of rattling the frets and audience expectations with his house rocking Taildraggers, singer/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Tim "Too Slim" Langford has turned the evolution upside down with a stunning, innovative solo album. Consisting of acoustic guitar, dobro, tenor ukulele and harmonica, along with electric bass and programmed drums, the result is a major musical statement from a virtuoso electric slide master. It is rendered all the more powerful by his intimate vocals, personal lyrics, spare, dramatic arrangements and a gorgeous, resonant sound."

"It is the rare artist who can lay bare his soul without seeming self-indulgent or becoming maudlin. Tim Langford not only avoids both pitfalls, but has created a musical masterwork that reaches the listener on every level, including emotionally, physically and spiritually. In an era of rampant cynicism it offers the perfect antidote with hope, humor, moral clarity and plain great music to chase the blues away."

 Full review will be available on Too Slim's website.
