Both sides of the Ben

Posted by keepitcoming on March 21, 2006

I wish Ben Harper were not alone on the sleeve of his latest record, Both Sides Of The Gun. I wish there were a picture of him with his band, and the album would be credited to Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. But that would be a lie, seeing as he played most instruments himself! Maybe that’s why this 60-minute, 2-CD affair feels mostly weak… The quiet side is a bit more engaging than the rocking side, but the best cuts are the stripped-down versions found on the bonus CD. Here’s hoping he can transcend this material on stage.
