Yeah I think it is a real grower. Each time I listen to it I find new things. For example the way Eddies piano really drives back in after the saw solo. Wonderful rythmic playing. Strangely I am beginning to think the ablum is often too much to hear in one go. It seems better to play about 5-6 songs at a time. This is certainly some of Tim's most complete writing-no songs like Horizon or Show Yourself that just sound crafted. I think the production is quite stunning sonically especially given the small number of instruments and there is plenty of space in the mix. They have also recorded his voice very well - quite a bit of double tracking but that doesn;t hurt. Miles Golding is very interesting - his lines are simple but beautifully rendered - a kind of classical counterpoint to the guitars - he often reintroduces the melody which seems to really work. Ethan Allen and Eddie have done a great job on production. My suspicion is that this album will be held in higher regard as time moves on.
