Pedro The Lion

The Only Reason I Feel Secure

Jade Tree 1064

Released on October 9, 2001

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

This follow-up EP to PEDRO THE LION's 1998 debut album It's Hard to Find a Friend, The Only Reason I Feel Secure was originally released in 1999 on the now defunct Made in Mexico label. Hailed by critics and fans alike as further proof of singer/songwriter David Bazan's genius, this EP was hard to find in the wake of PEDRO THE LION's ever-growing success. As a special bonus this EP contains 4 extra tracks, PEDRO's first single, and "Promise" which was originally the last song on It's Hard to Find a Friend. Remixed, remastered, and repackaged with a brand new layout and lyrics for the first time, The Only Reason I Feel Secure is a welcome addition to the Jade Tree catalog and a must for any PEDRO THE LION fan.

I purchased this album after acquiring a delightf mp3 from one of those file sharing programs - perhaps Limewire - of Pedro the Lion covering the Radiohead song "Let Down," and it's truly a remarkable rendition. Anyhow, on to The Only Reason I Feel Secure. Although there is nothing complex about David Bazan's guitarwork, and his voice is not out of the ordinary, there is something captivating about Pedro the Lion and especially this album. "I Am Always the One Who Calls," my personal favorite, is a wistful plea without being overbearingly whiny or melodramatic. Imagine Dashboard Confessional done without being all weepy and with a deeper voice and lighter guitar. It's nice, it's very very nice.

A brilliant follow up to a brilliant debut album. Tastefully re-packaged by Jade Tree and bundled with some live radio session tracks. If you liked 'It's hard to find a friend' you'll no doubt love this; It's some of David Bazaan's best work.
