Steve Poltz

One Left Shoe

Mercury

The best thing I can say about this album is that it is dedicated to Avery, the engineer’s deceased hamster. Isn’t that nice? Unfortunately, everything else about the album sucks. Mr. Poltz can’t seem to make up his mind whether he wants to be in the 1960s or the 1990s, so he takes the weakest and lamest parts of both and combines them to make this.

One can immediately hear Kristofferson, Cohen, and Dylan influences, but the emulation is not enough to save this loser. Now that Jewel has dumped him for Jean-Claude Van Damme, he should go back to the Rugburns where he seems to fare much better.
