Like the very best haiku poetry, Jay Farrar provides us with minimalist snippets of pure emotion between alt.country gems. While the tunes are moving and well-done, it is once again Farrar who shines. His opening song, "Gather," is achingly beautiful. But it is the score pieces that I particulary love; just Farrar on guitar and other instruments. Even if you eschew soundtracks, you'll cherish this collection.
