Vertical Horizon are apparently huge in the US with their current album, and if you like that, you should probably like this. The album is a bit softer than the new one and sounds like it was recorded in a garage (which it probably was).
I first heard this album when a friend lent it to me and I had to buy it straight away. Highlights on the album are Wash Away, The man who would be santa and the touching Angel without wings and Goodnight my friend.
If you don't mind "semi-folk rock", you should love this.
