Product Description

Humor Risk was recorded in various homes and studios across America and was produced by Cass and Ariel Rechtshaid. Humor Risk is perhaps Cass' most upbeat album yet, showing Cass in a more optimistic mood, and could be seen as the happier, more hopeful sister record to Wit's End. The lyrics are as interesting and wry as ever, the arrangements as beautiful as those on its predecessors, but here Cass' vocals are higher, the rhythm faster and the melodies more infectious than ever before. Humor Risk portrays yet another facade of this versatile, incredibly talented and much underrated artist.

HASH(0xa6e2590c) out of 5 stars Not Wit's End, But Still Very Good Nov. 8 2011
By pcaps - Published on Amazon.com
Cass McCombs is awesome. I've only given this album three spins today, so maybe I'm not the best person to write this review yet but I like Humor Risk.

Wit's End was incredible--it created this consistent mood where you felt like you were in a little universe of sad, soft paranoia. It hit on a lot of trademark Cass McCombs styles but was also a real evolution.

So far I'm not sure if I feel that Humor Risk has that same level of amazingness, but it's nice and varied and hits all sorts of high and lows. "Love Thine Enemy" might be a bit of a light way to start the album, but it's grown on me after a few listens. "Chimera" has that oppressiveness of Wit's End while "Robin Egg Blue" goes back to that earlier McCombs style.

It's definitely worth picking up--especially if you get it today at $3.99. That's a no-brainer.
