Album Review: The Bridge’s “Blind Man’s Hill” A Win


Blind Man’s Hill, released today by Hyena Records, is exactly what I expected it to be: Excellent.

The Bridge has the unique ability to bring the energy that mesmerizes audiences from the stage to the studio, and has used that talent to record another fantastic album. Many of Blind Man’s Hill‘s tracks were already fan favorites from live shows; songs like “Heavy Water” and “Honey Bee” are concert staples.

This album is proof that The Bridge can still bring it, and how. “Born Ramblin'”, written by Kenny Liner (mandolin/vocals), is a stripped-down track reminiscent of a Southern country-rock ballad; “Let Me Off This Train”, written by Cris Jacobs (vocals, guitar) is a drums- and sax-heavy track with a chorus that could bring any crowd to their feet.

With a sound my dad confuses for The Allman Brothers, a tour schedule that could make your head spin, and a hometown fan base that is enviable by any Baltimore band, The Bridge has made themselves into something special. Blind Man’s Hill proves, yet again, why these boys are not to be ignored.

Blind Man’s Hill is available at shows and on Amazon.com, iTunes, and The Bridge’s website. The band is touring through early December, and coming back for a New Year’s show at the Inner Harbor Sheraton. Their next album release party is with Ekoostik Hookah at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore on November 26; tickets are available at http://www.walther-productions.com.
