This review is from: Simple Times [Us Import] (Audio CD)
I loved we were here. I love Winter, I loved his music so much that I crammed myself into a tiny pub in London to listen to him and he was brilliant.
But this is rubbish.
He doesn't have a very powerful voice, so it lends itself to the intimate, sparse music he did so well on his previous album.
But this album is so over produced, the songs so forgettable. It's actually a pretty cynical exercise with every number seemingly vying for the final five minute Gray's Anatomy montage soundtrack. Try early Iron and Wine or Joe Purdy for the real deal. This is dreadful, and I take no pleasure in saying that because his last album will remain in my top 10 of all time. Gutted.
