Patty Griffin is an extraordinary talent. The voice that errupts from her small form is outstanding and a thing of beauty. This album is her most personal as it is inspired from the passing of her father and the writing that Patty put into the songs helped her cope with the loss of her father. I have enjoyed the album the more I listen to it, maybe hearing a lyric or a piece of music I had missed on my previous listen. The album is definately a grower. I think the song Ohio is just a masterpiece and Robert Plants vocals help bring it to another level. Wild Old Dog is one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. For me, Patty Griffen definately doesnt get the recognition that she deserves, she is a very rare talent in a music industry that is just about making a quick bit of money nowadays. Buy this album and her back catalouge. You'll be glad you did.
