BENJI COSTA: Between the Blue and Green: CD

Jan 07, 2008

Why me? If there is a god, is he/she/it punishing me for something I did or didn’t do? Was I supposed to kill George W. before he became president? Here’s some folky stuff with a guy singing falsetto, sort of like Tiny Tim (ask yer parents) with an assortment of folky backing instruments, including glockenspiel, as the press release proudly lists. They also say that Benji Costa is a “mad genius.” I usually think of a genius as someone who turns the status quo on its head and does something new and different. I guess it’s not too bad, sort of a third rate acoustic John Lennon, but definitely not genius.
