Jack Waldheim and the Criminal Hearts, have been busy, locked in a dark basement, making noises and grotesquely honest music. They now are proud to bring to you, and album that rocks and sways from the dark and brooding opening 'The Revolution,' through the Motownesque swag of 'Bombardier' and the funky swinging blues of 'A Werewolf in Love' and into the heatfelt halcyonic journey of the second disc, all with unique flavor and clarity, right through the end of the album, 'Baby, You're my Train' this album says so much, it hurts...in a good way.
Featuring Pete Adams, Benny 'Fingers' Kohn, and Jack's longtime bandmate Chris Mattoon. This long awaited album will hopefully surpasses all expectations, and is a 2 1/2 hour thrill ride!
Crazy Jane Records artist, Jack Waldheim wrote, "On Second Thought" on his beat-to-hell acoustic guitar in the corner of a dark room scratching fast to the open edge of what defines him as an artist. Coming up Poetic and original, it is as much the moist and red curtained window to the mind as it is an indepentant film of a life Exploding with edge and heart.
It's hard to describe what sets his music apart from the sea of music on the market these days, it seems everyone has something to say. But what Jack offers is unique, honest and clear. There are no cliche's here.
"On Second Thought..." was recorded in three days, live in the studio with an all-star band featuring Pete Adams, Jody Lampro, Bobby Sweet, Rick Leab and Tonia O'Brien.
