IGP Crew Album Review: Jonny Craig - A Dream Is A Question You Don't Know How To Answer
We're going to keep this short and sweet. If you've heard of (or should I say about) Jonny Craig, then simply forget what you've heard, read, or seen—you know like the Men In Black memory eraser thing, use that. If you have no idea who or what I am...
We're going to keep this short and sweet. If you've heard of (or should I say about) Jonny Craig, then simply forget what you've heard, read, or seen—you know like the Men In Black memory eraser thing, use that. If you have no idea who or what I am talking about, then perfect that is exactly what I want to hear.
If you would also please refrain from using google and typing this gentleman's name into the search bar, that would also be greatly appreciated. Just simply hit up your favorite streaming service, type in the album's name (which is ungodly long), and start listening. Wow, you're done already? Awesome, now listen again. Man, twice in one hour? You're a champ, and third times a charm—just kidding, kind of. Really though, you can stop now.
Now, feel free to google away. Most of what you're going to read is true (and unfortunate), I just didn't want it to take away from your listening experience. So what happens when you take a talented singer/songwriter from Canada, mix in a pretty severe drug habit, and an ego the size of Mt. Everest? Well, you get Jonny Craig. You might have also read that he has been kicked out of a handful of bands (some of which he was the founding member), this is also true. But in my honest opinion, his solo work far outweighs the stuff he did with those bands—but per usual, I am just the intern (unpaid) and I really have no clue what I am talking about.
When all is said and done, we all have our own opinions of Jonny, especially those of us that have met him in person. But at the end of the day, there is a reason why so many of us keep coming back to this album. What's the reason you ask? Hey, how about you listen and find out.
