    "Brand New Beat" Being an avid fan of the original Beat movement, as well as enlightened inspiration all together, I feel overwhelmingly priviledged to have read Brandt Hardin's poetry. It is entirely too rare, in these troubling and mind draining times in which we live, that someone comes at you with such fierce passion for word and thought that it actually spawns some originality within ourselves. His poetry is reminescent of poets such as Allen Ginzberg, Jack Kerouac, Jim Morison, and William Blake, but with the intensity and flavor of writers like Burroghs, Kesey, and Anthony Burgess. While too unique to compare to these poets, he certainly deserves to be mentioned among them. Brandt Hardin is without a doubt the brand new beat!

    "Delightful" The reviewer below says what must be said, which is, if comparisons flavor one's critical eye, that Mr. Hardin has created here a shell-shocked re-entry into Beat-space. His tonal parses through our beings' sensory pulse, lit like a flair, his words sing debauchery to the Victorian sense-strangling, culling heart scents from the reader's dreamtime memories where pompous sensibility drops like haze to spike through a ground that, I'm sure, is sure to drain away. His twist is by sunlight, here, where words are more than marks across the paved and parceled page. Here, his Beat soul shines mere words across the darkened page like a flashlight, his intent being that you'll see the flagging wilt of still-forming images so that you'll carry on. He doesn't splay a poetry here for your digestion, as much, he is imploring your imagination: grab a handle for these picture frames. Pick the bone deep ringing in you clean, piece his pieces into one piece, which isn't his, or... More > ours, however; it is yours. His Sun, and your sky, masked with rainbow light. This isn't Beat-space, even Brandt's space, but your space, because the Twist is Day Dreaming. His poems are umbrellas for the chill ever drenching sky drip. Lee3< Less
