I was in places reminded of Al Stewart and his "Year of the cat"-relatively catchy songs until you hear them a few times and then the clean voice and the prententious lyrics hasten it to Oxfam. OK there is a song or two here worth the candle but comparisons with Dylan are ludicrous. There is a complete lack of edge here which excludes it even from a loose classification of Alternative country. Only the raspy violin tracks engage for more than the first listen and that trick wears thin pretty quick. Should have an 18 certificate, i.e. don't buy it if you are older.
