Product Description

Product Description

Rob Me Blind, Jay Brannan's second studio album, showcases a more intricately produced side of the singer-songwriter. Recorded by renowned producer David Kahne (Regina Spektor, Paul McCartney, The Bangles). Jay first turned heads in the acclaimed film Shortbus with the performance of his song "Soda Shop." Soon after, he released his critically acclaimed debut album goddamned in 2008 and his follow-up album In Living Cover in 2009. Both album releases were followed by sold-out dates around the world and a continual growing, devout online fan community. This Deluxe Limited Edition Digitpac comes are numbered and include a 24pg booklet and drop card with a free download of Live at Eddies Attic featuring 11 songs including a cover of Adele s hit "Someone Like You" and "Super Bass" by Nicki Manaj. Limited quantity of 4,000 to be manufactured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fire in the voice March 27 2012
By Frank Glass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the sleeve notes for this CD, Jay Brannan says, "I am scared, I am insecure, and I only believe in myself on really good days." I'm sad about that because it's not a good way for anyone to feel. On the other hand, if those feelings can produce art like the art on this CD, I'm just callous enough to say, "Suck it up, Jay, and sing."

Whatever you call the level of talent slightly above genius (and I'm sorry I'm not better at hyperbole), that's what Jay's got musically. Whether it's the blazing, multi-faceted poetry with its quirky, completely unexpected but totally apt images, or the wide-ranging melodies with their lovely little falsetto flips, or the headlong, sometimes impacted rush of phrasing, or the endlessly inventive accompaniment figures of the guitar, or the clever arrangements that seem to rise out of almost nothing, there is nothing on this CD that is not totally brilliant. And to cap it all, there's the dry-eyed yet heartfelt, vulnerable yet resilient, snarky but oh-so-sweet singing of Jay.

A little heartache and pain aside, what's not to love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What You'd Expect and More! April 5 2012
By John M. Seckman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This third album from Jay is absolutely amazing! I cannot express enough (but I'll try) how much I recommend people pick up Rob Me Blind. His growth as an artist really shows on this album. He moves slightly away from the straight acoustic songs with this album. But fear not, they quality of music you expect from him is still, it just layered with more instruments and orchestration. Jay's music has always touched my heart. As a fellow gay man, I really appreciate the honesty he puts in his music about relationships with men and his observations of the world around him. His songs have often mirrored my own thoughts and experiences and express them in a way I never could. Jay continues to shine and impress. This albums version of `Beautifully' is amazing!! `Rob Me Blind' is probably my favorite new song from this album, but there are plenty of outstanding tracks, like `The Spanglish Song,' `Greatest Hists,' 'Love Story,' 'State of Music' and, well really, they're all great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just keeps getting better April 7 2012
By Jupiter Calling - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With every new album/EP Jay just keeps getting better. The production on this album is top notch. Love hearing the strings and drums and piano and all the eclectic styles that sneak in and out of this new batch of songs. Fun, heartfelt, talented. But you've got to see him live!

Highlights:

La La La - awesome and hilarious
Denmark - one of my favorites from his youtube page FINALLY made an album
State of Music - the shout outs, especially for my girl Ani DiFranco
The live album for download - Been dying for him to release some live tracks and this takes the cake. Album tracks, b sides and live covers of Adele and Nicki Minaj! Classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars And I say La La La La Oct. 14 2012
By L. Reuter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Second full length CD from Jay Brannan finally arrives after his debut Goddamned from a few years back.
It's a nice small album, but over way too soon, two or three tracks more would have been nice, for example the christmas songs or soda pop.

Also, I did not receive the Limited Edition from Amazon, while they still list it as such.
The difference is a standard cd-case instead of digipack
Simple booklet instead of 24-pages
And no digital download code for the live album...
