I guess you could compare this to 'Absence' in that I feel some of it is a little bland. It doesn't quite have that timeless melodic quality of his best releases, but it does hit it out every now and then and is still fairly consistent. I think the songs are okay but there aren't too many I'd rank near the top of his canon.
It seems to me it was a transitional album to find the voice that was more assured with the next album. A couple of the later songs start to show great promise. I like Pear and others like Kansas City and Harborview. Really good songs that elevate the record. I also must commend the last song on the record which is one of his best. On the whole I cannot quite give it 4 stars though.
Seriously, I have been a huge devotee of Mr. Jurado since On My Way To Absence.
He is consistently a great songwriter-both lyrically and musically. His music is
usually dark, melancholy, sometimes bleak but there is something soothing about
the pervasive pathos in his music not unlike Leonard Cohen's or Bonnie Prince Billie's.
If you took the sound of Neil Young at his most darkly introspective and somehow melded it with the sound of Elliot Smith at his most tuneful you might come close to approximating Jurado's sound. This CD finds him building and expanding on his previous work-if this is not his best it stands with his best. Neil hasn't written songs with this directness and brilliance in ages.
