Amazing music in a time with not not that great music.
on 22 November 2007
Bought this album here from Amazon, and recieved it this afternoon. At first I didn't really get into it, it was good. But nothing that remarkable. Then I listened to it again. =O!
This really is some great stuff. Somewhat melancholic, it's sounds a bit like the mood of Neil Young's On The Beach, with a more dylanesque feel to it, and with lyrics that makes me think a lot of The Band. This is good, really great. It's epic. Most of the people used to the more commericial, polished stuff of today might think it sounds a bit strange. But this is raw, imperfect (like the thunder hitting the studio during the recording of Hey Hey Revolver), and paradoxally amazing.
So everyone that liked, for example (as I said above) Neil Young's more sad period (this is though not as electric as most of his songs, but think Ambulance Blues)... and, actually the whole americana/folk period a là The Band will NOT be disappointed.
One of the best albums I've heard this year.
(please note that I'm a teenager from Sweden writing this, so my english might be a bit... not that good. and I probably could write this better in just some years, but, I'm quite sure of my opinion)
