Tim Bowen and the Crystal Ball Breakers new CD âIssuesâ adopts a different approach following the bandâs 2001 debut "Variety". More succinct at six songs, more direct musically and more socially and politically conscious lyrically, âIssuesâ takes a head-on look at some of the most difficult and troubling situations confronting our present day world. From the anthemic grandeur of "Letâs Raise An Army (Take It To Darfur)", to the stripped down Appalachia of "American Refugee" (perhaps the definitive song about Hurricane Katrina) and Plastic Ono-esque rawness of the child abuse testimonial "Just A Little Boy", âIssuesâ tackles themes too rarely addressed in contemporary popular music with empathy and conviction.
