If An Hour Remained is the latest release from Jason Greene. Greene continues to build on his sound he started to establish with State Of A Lawman and Local Animus back in 2016. The instrumentation stays similar to his previous releases with the guitar as the main instrument of choice.
Greene starts with “If An Hour Remained” which is a bluesy folk song. It revolves around a rhythm guitar, occasional lead guitar and vocals. The lyrics focus on broad concepts like free will and value. Greene sings, “Does it make any difference which way you turn? / Yes I believe that it does oh yeah.”
“Modern” is reflective and atmospheric. It also contains a smooth layer of melancholy. I thought “Aquifer You” was a highlight. It’s a really smooth song and I felt like I wanted to listen while hanging out at the beach. There is some very light percussion at points but for the most the song is all about the guitar work.
“Steal Another Ride” is a bit of a slow burn with thought provoking lyrics. Greene sings, “If I lose my mind, it won't cost a dime / I will save what I have left and steal another ride.” “A Thousand To One” continues with a more somber tone while “Arrested” contains some notable lead guitar with harmonica making itself known as well.
“St. Joseph Drive-By” is basically an old traditional blues song. There are more reflective moments to be had on “Welcome Relief.” “No When I Arrived” contained my favorite guitar work on the album. It‘s wicked blues with some attitude. “Coastal In My Mind” had its moments as well. Greene ends with a postive note on “I Asked A Question”
Greene brings the goods with this release and is proving himself to be a prolific artist. Recommended.
