5.0 out of 5 stars Top Album 17 Jan 2006
By Edd
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Descended from a conductor and vice-president of Norfolk & Western rail line, singer/songwriter Adam Selzer's history has been strongly intertwined with the company. In 1998 the company ceased to exist, the very same year Adam (born on one of their passenger trains) released his debut album and he hence named the band 'Norfolk & Western'.
Norfolk & Western has its own very different style. Recorded in a disused freight carriages in Adam's backyard, it is a soft album using a variety of instruments performed by Adam and supported, with drums, backing vocals and many other instruments besides, by former Decemberists drummer Rachel Chaiya.
You can imagine sitting in a quiet pub by the side of the old railway with the old freight trains passing by, listening to the sometimes mournful songs. From start to finish this is a brilliant album, but I have to particularly mention Terrified and Jealousy, It's True as being two of my favourites. This album is never far from the top of my CD pile and is one of the first I put on when I am (or need to be) in a more sombre mood.
Listen to a few of the examples, decide you like it and buy it! (Not necessarily in that order, but I find that way normally works the best).

4.0 out of 5 stars really beautiful stuff 19 April 2004
By doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I read about this band randomly on the allmusic guide and decided to check out their earlier records. They were definitely good and I can see why they are so critically acclaimed, but I must say that I think this is their most accessable effort. It's laid back like the previous record, but it seems to me that this is a more focused record and the songs are more consistent throughout. If you like the lo-fi type recording sounds of guys like Elliott Smith and Sam Beam I recommend this record, but expect much more in the sense of layering on sounds. Elliott Smith and Sam beam may be superior songwriters and singer in my mind, but this guy has some great stuff going on in the background. Definitely worth a listen.
