"Titles never come easy to me, but this one did. Long before I recorded a single note I knew what I'd call it. That name, it was just in the air."

Singer songwriter Jim White has a habit of snatching meaning from thin air. His critically acclaimed debut album, The Mysterious Tale of How I Shouted Wrong-Eyed Jesus, tapped into the zeitgeist of what would soon blossom into ... Read more in Amazon's Jim White Store

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly disappointed! 7 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Disappointed, because i thought this was a new Jim White album, which it isn't. It is songs written by Jim for a theatre production. Pleasantly, because this is quite a good album anyway! Jim only sings on 3 songs, the rest are guest singers, spoken word pieces and instrumentals. The only track i don't like is 10, an irritating religious ramble, but, on the whole, this is worth the asking price. The last track, Bluebird, is one of the best songs Jim has ever written, sung beautifully by Shayna Small.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jim White 14 Aug 2011

Another oddity from Jim White. Not my favourite album but worth a listen if you can suspend your judgement on folky kids singing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, fun CD 3 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is more of a quirky, fun CD than a musical masterpiece, but it is worth having, especially since it completes my Jim White collection.
