Hawksley Workman is a sensitive, surprising and crazy artist. In one word: AMAZING!
When you listen to his last album, you can't resist to buy the other one...It's just like a smooth drug!

That Hawksley is a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic is on display everywhere.
I can't find much negative to say about this album. "We Will Still Need a Song" makes you wonder about who will be sitting next to you when you're 85 and sitting on a rocking chair outside on a nice sunny day in September. However, there is still definitely a note of sadness to this song. Sadness is a consistent theme on this album even when the beat and sound is upbeat. The one song this doesn't apply to is "Anger as Beauty" which just gets in the way of an excellent flow.
The five best songs are all one after the other, starting with "Tonight Romanticize the Automobile" and ending with "Addicted." "Tonight" is just a solid showcase of the talents here: guitar is on full display, and so are Hawksley's gravelly vocals. "Future Language of Slaves" is a haunting piece of vocal work with very subtle instrumentation that adds to it. The highlight is undoubtedly "Slaves... slaves..." A positively excellent song when listened to far from a large city at night, perhaps at the cottage.
"Smoke Baby" is a masterful fusion of the rest of the album's sound with a more urban vibe. However, it doesn't pick up the pace too much, which is good, because otherwise it would definitely jar the rest of the album, as the tracks surrounding it are so delicate (and that's meant in the best possible way).
If you listen to "Autumn's Here" 50 times over a year and never *once* have your eyes even get moist, there is something wrong with you. I can't add anything more to this.
Now on my version of the CD , there is a song separating "Autumn's Here" and "Addicted." They might have flipped the last two songs on this version. In any case, "Addicted" is just a wicked jam tune. It does drag a bit, but since it does finish the album (or does for me), I didn't mind. IT gives you time to get up and press play as soon as the CD finishes or to pick another CD. You won't want to though.
An excellent album, and I can't think of any vocalist that could pull off half the songs on this album other than Hawksley.

An Excellent CD!
Smoke Baby is probably my favourite song, but Anger as Beauty, Even An Ugly Man and We Will Still Need A Song are close behind, as is the last hidden track, which I can't remember the name of right now. Autumn's Here is stripped down and stark, but gorgeous. Really, there are none I dislike. On the Highway Tonight There's No Reason to Cry out Your Eyes has a very neat video. A girl is crying in a car, and Hawksley is a little guy with a guitar hanging by a string from the rearview mirror, trying to get down. Cool idea whoever had it. Also love the fact that Hawksley is a drummer but plays all the instruments himself. (kind of like Pete Yorn - although I don't think Pete plays the base)
Anyway, it's a great album. Definitely worth a listen. (It might even make it into my top 10 favourite albums of all time.)I'm sure I will be listening to it for years to come, and I will definitely be checking out more Hawksley . . . hope you will too!
