Robin Holcomb, The Big Time

By Sarah Wostenberg

Robin Holcomb’s album The Big Time is musical poetry. The album’s tone is simple and straight forward with complex instrumentals supported by strong vocals and seemingly simple overtones. In sections, the music conveys a hard impact using her choice of words and lyrical structure. Throughout the disc, Holcomb speaks candidly of emotion behind the elusive words of love and truth, but stays clear from diluting her message with flowery diction. Overall, the album is solid and serene with a tone of power and honesty the whole way through.
