"Holcombe Waller's Troubled Times is part personal confession and part tirade of the current Bush administration. A highlight from the latter category? Waller actually manages to rhyme Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's name -- sort of. "Condoleezz, baby pleezz...," Waller croons on "No Enemy," "You must reverse your stance and seal your fate/ To mend the broken wing of the state.
"But even without the none-to-subtle pleas for a return to political rationality, the languid, almost non-committal quality of Waller's music feels like a challenge to the status quo in itself. The meandering, post-climactic quality of his tunes -- there is rarely a chord strummed all album -- seems to suggest, "lets knock it off with hyper-masculine 'stratergery,' America, and take a deep breath, and stop insisting everything we do be punctuated with a wailing guitar solo." Troubled Times is Waller's third album to date, all released on his own Napoleon Records label."
