Where his recent excursion with his Gathered In Song collective, ‘I Break Chairs’ was a slight blemish on Jurado’s immaculate track record, ‘Where Shall You Take Me?’ has the Seattle songwriter back to his miserable best. ‘I Break Chairs’ had concerned me, as well as other fans no doubt, that Jurado had finally cheered up, and had dropped his acoustic guitar for a more electric sound. Thankfully ‘Where Shall You Take Me’ sees Jurado as depressed as ever.
The opening lines of album should mislead no one, “First came the scream / and blood on the floor.” ‘Amateur Night’ is a sullen acoustic opener that becomes so much more when it reaches its dizzying keyboard finale. Elsewhere ‘Intoxicated Hands’ with its eerie guitar creates an odd tale of love gone horribly wrong. Perhaps most terrifying of all though is ‘Abilene’; a story of a 19 year old girl whisked away by a “man without money”. Whether she is being taken against her will or not is never made clear, which makes the track all the more menacing. In fact, this lyrical ambiguity is something Jurado makes a habit of.
While Jurado’s voice carries the tenderness and fragility of Jeff Buckley or even Thom Yorke, the inclusion of Rosie Thomas on a few tracks is inspired. Thomas’ input is most notable on ‘Window’, an Appalachian hymn so pure it could have been recorded a century ago. Her glowing vocals also brighten Jurado’s tale of life on the American road on ‘Omaha’.

This is his fifth LP, I'd never heard of him. I read the review in Uncut and thought he sounded interesting. I was in HMV, I saw the record so I bought it.
It's one of the greatest albums I've heard. Ever.
On first listen it's a really beautiful slice of simple Americana. A little Sparklehorse-y in places, even Uncle Tupelo. he sounds a little like Jay Farrar singing one of Jeff Tweedy's more ballad-y songs. A few of the songs are near Traditional mid-west folk ditties. It's immediately very engaging, drawing you in as softly spoken murmurs of things not right emerge from the sparse arrangements.
The blood splattered CD design gives a very obvious clue, but it's onlt when you catch the words that you really get to understand that this is a very very dark place you've entered.
On opener "Amateur Night"
I am not an evil man
I just have a habit I can't kick
sets the scene, as for the next 30 minutes eerie little sketches of love, lust and murderous intent take you over.
Innocent litle folk ditties act as a prelude for the closing chapter "Bad Dreams".
And I have bad dreams
Done so many bad things
So come save me from this fire
a plea for redemption. But without remorse. A lone violin takes over and the words repeat to fade.
The picture of the electric chair inside the CD's case makes perfect sense.
It's a stunning record, musically simple, Jurado's cracked voice oft' complimented by Rosie Thomas' more classic notes. A drak Gram and Emmylou perhaps? Not really, with the exception of the Alt.Country rock of Texas to Ohio (a song about how love to turns to loathing as our host and friend embark on a journey of escape, from who, what or where we're not quite sure), this is not a straightforward country rock record.
Nick Cave sometimes springs to mind, plus trad Bluegrass, Raymond Carver, appalachian folk and Willa Cather.

Damien has produced his best album yet which is perfectly stated by the title of this album "Where Shall You Take Me"! Each track is different and unique with his lyrics which allows your mind to drift a new realm of easy listening and thought-provoking music. It's a must to buy and add to your Damien Jurado's CD collection. I have three of his previous CDs which I love however I find this to be his best work to date. It truly reflects his "unique" musical talent and artistic skills! Congratulation Damien.......... from a recently acquired admirer.

Damien has another newly acquired admirer!!! I listened to this album for the first time in the car driving through Snowdonia this weekend. the haunting, emotional songs were the perfect accompaniment to North Wales' dark, brooding, beautiful mountains! his music (like the mountains) sent shivers down my spine. a brilliant album - I will certainly be buying his back catalogue.
