Having bought this LP on a whim I had no idea what to expect. I can honestly say that it is one of the finest albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Opener 'Ohio' is a wonderfully constructed country tale of woe, and sets the scene for the rest of the album. What quickly becomes evident is that Jurado is one of the finest purveyors of 'one man and his acoustic guitar' music working today.
The entire album glistens with brilliance, but the stand-out tracks are the aforementioned 'Ohio', 'Letters and Drawings' (a tale of lost love) and 'Love the Same' (an especially melancholic song about unrequited affection).
It won't be to everyone's taste, if you don't like acoustic music this won't change your mind. If, on the other hand you do, I recommend you pour yourself a bourbon, sit back and listen to half an hour's worth of pure majesty.
