"Richard Lindgren's songs touch my heart deeply, he is a kindred spirit to me. The sorrow, the longing, the anger, the humor, the always reaching for something more, he expresses all these feelings so beautifully in his new CD A Man You Can Hate. What a stunning collection of songs, of human emotion, of glimpses into the unsettled soul of an artist. He has given us an honest gift, the best gift any artist can give. He has given us himself."
