Myself When I Am Real – Music Review
- Tuesday, September 24, 2002
Following up on his folk-revival singer-songwriter debut and a sophomore foray into more radio-friendly production, Bebo Norman’s Myself When I Am Real finds a middle ground between upbeat pop and introspective storytelling.
Despite occasional musical predictability (Bebo has a handful of favorite chord progressions that were already overused by the end of his first album), most of the songs achieve a good blend of accessible hooks and expressive poetry. As a lyricist and performer, Norman equals or surpasses his earlier releases. Even the most hardened listener will likely soften to his intimate, raw vocals on lines like, “I may not be your place to run/I may not be your kingdom come… But I will not give up on you.”
