Genre: Rock/Pop, Folk
Release Date: June 1998

Review by LarryG
4 stars out of 4

Grant Lee Phillips has always been an interesting, intelligent eccentric performer and writer but his previous works with Grant Lee Buffalo had been a little on the obscure side. Jubilee was a breakthough where he was still able to project an interesting persona but in a more accessible way. From the opening track, APB, with its hammering drums and whaling guitars, the band shows it's ready to rock. While Phillips singing and lyrics still have an edge, the album is pretty upbeat throughout. Jubilee is less complicated musically and lyrically than previous GLB work. Truly, Truly is a simply communicated heartfelt love song. Phillips has found a way to keep things interesting but also listenable.

Here's what others reviewers have to say:

"...Phillips continues to evoke an utterly unique world composed of American lore, biblical references, literary flair and stirring emotional honesty..." 3.5 Stars (out of 5)  Rolling Stone 8/20/98, p.110
