Review

The first thing that becomes glaringly apparent while listening to {$Beaver Nelson}'s {^Legends of the Super Heroes} is that he's suddenly become as much a pure {\pop} tunesmith in the vein of {$Freedy Johnston} as he is a hard-scrabble roots man. It's most apparent throughout {&"Anything Easy Left,"} but you can also sense it, for example, in the way that {&"Digging a Well"} moves from standard, {\classic country} intonations to an elegantly {\pop} melody line in the chorus. Then there's the swooning, piano-twinkly {&"Chameleon Brain,"} or the way {$Nelson} lashes his unearthly melodic smarts atop the {\country} shuffle of {&"Government Sanctioned Hayride."} With each album (this is his fourth) {$Beaver Nelson} seems to cast his uncanny talent for great tunes and literate lyrics in a different light. With {^Legends of the Super Heroes}, {$Nelson} confirms the fact that he just may be one of the smartest, least predictable songwriters working the formidable expanses of Austin, TX, a town that has seen its share of that rare species. ~ Erik Hage, Rovi
