Unrequited is a wonderful album. The first half is all studio tracks recorded with a full band. The best of the bunch being KINGS AND QUEENS. There are many culteral influences in the first half of the record (reggae, country, folk)which only illuminates his excellent writing talents. The second half of the record captures Louden at his best; Live and accoustic. There are many gems here ranging from the funny (GURU, THE UNTITLED, RUFUS IS A TIT MAN)to the oldies (OLD FRIEND). For the beginners to Loudens music, this fits as a great introduction.
