Product Description

Product Description

Having gained recognition after a song he wrote ended up on Beyonce's latest album, Hugo was contacted by Roc Nation to be part of the newly formed label. As a tip of the hat to Roc Nation's founder, Hugo put a country-fried twist on the classic "99 Problems" discovering an unforeseen link between pop, rock and hip-hop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly blends musical genres with style and soul May 11 2011
By Mrs.J.Breen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First and foremost the lyrics on this album blow. me. away. This album has it all -- rock, pop, soul a dash of international flavor -- all the influences mesh together brilliantly...and originally. I think the best compliment I can pay is there isn't a single track on this CD that I skip. There are not many CD's I can say that about... So I am no professional music reviewer by any stretch of the imagination (so be nice) but here are some random comments/thoughts on the tracks:

*Old Tyme Religion - Told from the perspective of a dead man in a lover's triangle. You have never heard anything quite like this, musically or lyrically. This song is the perfect opening track as you instantly know that you are experiencing something special and a blend of music genres like you have never heard before.
*99 Problems - Deliverance is no longer my frame of reference for banjos, so thanks for that, Hugo! Seriously - to start with a hip hop song and end with this...brilliant
*Bread and Butter - Okay, first came Barry White, then Enigma -- now Bread and Butter -- this song is sex, pure and simple (and so much better than Barry and Enigma!).
*Rock and Roll Delight - Definitely where the 'pop' comes out to play the most - a catchy diddy for sure...
*Hopelessly Stoned - "Like a bug on my window pane/Safe inside from the wind and rain/Try to fly, but it's all in vain/Just hopeless, hopelessly stoned." This song is all over the place, in a very very good way - definitely one of the best tracks on the album.
*Hurt Makes It Beautiful - A lot of truth to these lyrics.
*Born - Very very catchy. It will get stuck in your head.
*Mekong River Delta - This song surprised me by becoming my favorite track on the album...and I can't for the life of me explain why...
*Sweetest Cure - "I want you again, don't want to be your friend/ I wanna be adored, not a voyeur" -- I love that line!
*Different Lives -- It is hard to comment on a song that is clearly so personal. This song is at the same time tragic and absolutely beautiful.
*Just A Shred - Another catchy tune..you hear the international sounds in this one a lot
*Wake Alone - "If you only knew how much, I obsess over your touch/ I guess I'm old school in my ways" I'm not big on ballads. This is a modern ballad like nothing I have heard before. This song is another of the bigger achievements on this album in my opinion.

This album seamlessly crosses generational and genre barriers - with style. You will not regret this purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Phenomenal Must-Have Album Nov. 5 2011
By Baillifdesign - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A friend recommended I check out a video of Hugo playing "99 Problems" on YouTube. Fifteen seconds into the song I knew I would buy the entire album. This album is a complex mixture of powerful, beautifully composed, instrumentals that are intertwined with Hugo's mastery of vocal inflection, his dynamic versatility, and soulful voice .

The bass lines alone in many of the songs will have you stepping on the gas and blowing past speed limit signs. If the first two tracks don't get you moving and make you fall in love with this album, than you should probably ignore all future reviews I make. Support a great artist, buy this album; thereby encouraging the recording lables to produce more solid, and soulful, rock like this!

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Gonna spread you like butter' May 28 2011
By Cheryl Stout - Published on Amazon.com
I'm glad OLD TYME RELIGION is finally out. I've been waiting a while since I first heard "Bread and Butter" - my favorite song on the album. Who can't like the words of the chorus? 'Gonna spread you like butter.' I heard it the first time on the CASTLE television show and then had to wait for the debut album to release. Oh well - anticipation!

I also really like "99 Problems"; "Hurt Makes It Beautiful"; "Born"; and "Wake Alone." But really there's not a bad song in the bunch.

A down and DIRTY bluesy rock feel to the whole thing that I love.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very, very good album Aug. 28 2011
By Daniel Cormier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I had never heard of this artist before watching the 2011 remake of Fright Night. When the credits rolled a version of "99 Problems" that I had definitely never heard before came on (and the title line is really the only thing it has in common with the original version by Jay Z). Me and me friend were really impressed with it. I quickly pulled out my phone and used SoundHound to find out who it was by and found that it was from this album. I ordered it from my phone even before I got home. I've listened to this album probably a half dozen times in the past 5 days. It just gets better every time I hear it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Album Feb. 12 2012
By ThebigTEA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I can really only echo what I am reading here. This is a great great album. It is hard to put the album into a specific genre as it mixes things up a bit. I don't normally do reviews, but I was compelled to type something up to recommend this to other music lovers. The music seems to be a mixture of country, alt, blue grass, pop and hip-hop. It is beautifully done and just wonderful to listen to. Buy it, you will not regret it.
