    A Winter Tale's lyrics can tend toward the impenetrable, but his old-before-his-time romanticism and strong rasp are real draws.

    Long sometimes gets a little lost in his own imagination, but it's better to display a weakness for overreaching than the writerly laziness that afflicts many young bards.

    If Long has captured the style necessary to make him the next New Dylan, he hasn't quite figured out the issue of lyrical content.

    Unfortunately for Bobby Long, today's climate accepts most singer-songwriters as pretty boys more than musicians, and he falls dangerously within the reach of this category. His songs, though poetic and poignant, are also doomed to constant airplay thanks to their familiarity.
