Best Of ’11: Amos Lee

Amos Lee – Mission Bell

I have mixed feelings about this album…similar to the feelings I have for the Wilco album. I love Amos Lee’s music, especially his voice, and I really love the band Calexico, who back him on this album. I guess I had higher hopes for the collaboration, but there ARE some really great songs on here. I’d say half are extremely strong, especially “El Camino”, “Windows Rolled Down”, “Violin”, and “Flower”, which happen to be the first four tracks. Honestly those four almost carry the rest of the album for me. They’re that good.

Amos Lee – “Flower”

Love this tune from Amos Lee’s new album, Mission Bell. It’s got that cheerful soul feeling that we find a lot in his music… complete with a gospel-like chorus of backup voices. The lyrics for this one make me very happy – “My heart is a flower that blooms every hour, I believe in the power of love.” And check out this cool video!
