Review: Blue October “Any Man In America”

Blue October’s latest release, Any Man In America, is Justin
Furstenfeld’s emotionally raw telling of his experience as his marriage
crumbled and of his continued fight for his child. 

The pain, frustration, hope, disappointment and heartbreak
expressed resonate throughout the album. Furstenfeld’s revealing honesty is well
known by listeners who have been touched by his lyrics. While the emotion can
be a bit uncomfortable, which is a testament to the powerful reality expressed
in the music, makes the listener think and feel a range of emotions.
The musicianship of Furstenfeld, Ryan Delahoussaye (violin,
mandolin, and piano), Matt Novesky (bass), and Jeremy Furstenfeld (drums), is
as strong as ever on Every Man In America. Their talent and diversity are the
perfect partners to Furstenfeld’s lyrics. 
Any Man In America portrays an example of what truly any man
in America dealing with custody issues may be going through.  You don’t have to be a father to understand
and relate to the album. Anyone who appreciates thoughtful lyrics and
multi-layered music should check out this album. 
Any Man In America is available in stores and online at iTunes and Amazon.
