You will either really like this one or hate it, I am pretty sure I liked it. The biggest thing going for it is that it is pretty unique which is big points in my book. It is kind of following the new trend of throwing weird instruments and samples and synthesizers on top of some acoustic guitar, but he does a pretty good job of it. There are times during which stuff will just start getting bizarre, but in the end it will all snap back together and a bright light will shine before your eyes and it will be realized that you just heard a break, and now it is all being driven home. So it makes it ok. The unsure and almost queasy vocals add a nice flavor to the album as does the eerie organ that is constantly belting out underlying tones of emotion. He even goes crazy and has a screaming part at the end! It is good new stuff, but don't bother with it unless you really like the indie rock world.
