ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Paul Hipp is ridiculously talented. He’s smart, funny, politically astute, a terrific writer, a wonderful singer, a gifted musician – and very easy on the eyes. If I didn’t love him so much, I’d probably resent him. The songs on “Blog of War” are at once blisteringly satiric, laugh out loud funny, and hauntingly moving. Outrage has never sounded so good. If Jonathan Swift and Bruce Springsteen got together and cut an album, it would sound a lot like “Blog of War.”
-Arianna Huffington

BLOG OF WAR

From Huffington Post favorites like Hipp’s Gospel-tinged take on the hypocritical homophobic Reverend Ted Haggart “Meth and Man Ass,” to the heartbreaking story of a promise broken “Pennsylvania Stars,” to brand new songs like the thought provoking rocker “Happy Bomb Maker,” “Blog of War” is a chronicle of a country beat up and sold out, lied to and left out to dry. It is a collection of some of Paul Hipp\'s Huffington Post blogs, plus brand-new unheard material fleshed out and rocked up. Standout tracks include “All American Boy,” “Hey Baby Hey,” “Honor and Dignity,” “Fearless,” and the haunting “3,800 Souls.”

Even if he wasn't the gifted musician that he is, Paul Hipp stands as an important agent of change. It was folks like Paul that raised the consciousness of millions back in the sixties to the horrific realities of Vietnam. Paul does this persuasively in his emotive lyrics on the travesty of Iraq and the despicable, dangerous Bush administration. His passion is crucial to nudge a narcissistic, ignorant electorate back to consciousness so we can realize what's at stake here.

3,800 Souls does this so concisely, so poignantly, and the sizzle of sarcasm makes it very potent to listeners of any ilk. Pennsylvania Stars hits the same vein, and is really quite a woderful melody. I get my kid to sit with me and listen to this stuff, explaining why we are so upset and promising him that we'll fix it and learn how to elect better leaders.

Thank you Paul, I hope you make a load of dough. But whether you do or don't, know that you are talented and critical musician for our times. I'm delighted to have you in my collection.
