I think he's one of the most underrated artists and it's too bad he is continuously overshadowed and overlooked, because 'Glitter' is a fantastic edition to anyone's record collection and worthy of a listen. The album contains a consistent collection of punky folk songs with catchy melodies and clever lyrics my personal favorite is "gimme a kiss, with your apocalypse, at the end of the world" in the up-tempo 'Black Haired Girl'. Malin is good on his own judging by his previous gem 'The Fine Art of Self-Destruction' but this time around, he's brought a few celeb-status friends with him; Jakob Dylan, Josh Homme and Ryan Adams all lend their talents to this unique album, and one of the best tracks on 'Glitter', 'Broken Radio', is a duet with The Boss himself.
Malin has an interesting and instantly recognizeable voice that is emotive and captivating, and his anarchistic lyrics and clever writing are likeable, adventurous and charming.
Malin's a true-blooded New Yorker and 'Glitter' reflects that in both lyric and sensability. Each track on the album is memorable and unique, but among the best are the first single, 'Don't Let Them Take You Down Beautiful Day ', the racuous Modern World', and the perfect album closer, the pretty down-home-meets-urban 'Aftermath' in which Malin likeably, cutely laughs whilst singing the line "remember when we used to laugh?
Mature yet immature, subdued yet loud, angry yet passive, vulnerable yet agressive, 'Glitter in the Gutter' is an album for people who really like a blend of poetry and melody.
Here's hoping that Malin finds an audience as large and devoted as his pal Ryan Adams, and that his future releases don't get lost in a sea of releases.

One of the best Americana releases this year. Check out his earlier releases as well. One person found this helpful. Excellent again. He builds on the great first two albums, with contributions from Springsteen, Josh Homme and others. Great album by a top artist. Since I bought this I've been traveling and only listened to it on my iPod. As a consequence I have not much idea as to the track names or who features on them, but I have had no temptation to iPod surf, and have listened to this all the way through several times.
I would count this as a great album, there are no dud tracks, each one is very listenable and Jesse's voice and the powerful backing is, if you like rock 'n roll, exactly what the doctor ordered. There are no gimmicks unless you count Bruce Springsteen guesting no musical, electronic or production trickery, just music. His previous 2 albums are equally as good. Go on, just buy it! Fast, FREE delivery, video streaming, music, and much more.
Back to top. Get to Know Us. And it's my generation and the whole world is breakin my heart. Speaking of the '80s, Malin 's got the cojones to cover Paul Westerberg 's mighty anthem "Bastards of Young" and turn it into a piano-laden ballad that gives way to screeing feedback guitars that line the background.
It's brave but it's a misstep, because with his presence, he might have pulled it off with all the raging six-string power the song is due. It's a minor complaint, perhaps, because that song should never be covered. There's a movie in here somewhere, but it's everywhere, falling out of the changes and dripping from the words like blood from a freshly opened vein.
He evokes images of rock's greatest moments in a weary urban tragedy that's not willing to throw in the towel just yet. Adams provides gorgeous backing vocals and some keen organ work, too. Glitter in the Gutter is aptly named, because Malin 's not posing.
There's irony in the reveries and hope in the dustbin. Like Samuel Beckett , he's holding out for the glimmer, even when it's covered over by busted hearts, lost souls, and night roamers who cannot bear to see the sun come up because all the flaws will be laid bare.
When Malin invites Springsteen to join him on the moody "Broken Radio," Malin is outclassed by his mentor's vocals, but at least Springsteen doesn't sound like he's slumming by singing one of Malin's compositions.
Malin even slips in a statement-of-purpose piano-ballad rendition of The Replacements' "Bastards Of Young," and doesn't miss a stride. The A.Glitter in the Gutter, the third solo album from Jesse Malin, finds the artist settling in to a comfortable groove, further cultivating the power-pop-with-a-touch-of-twang bittersweetness that was a staple of his solo debut The Fine Art of dowsoundcullaterni.meabsyluderbochanhillchrisamictrichul.cos:
