  1. Some of the songs do gain a degree of poignancy in this bare-bones setting, which doesn’t make them better, just different, and certainly worth hearing for those fans dedicated enough to care.
  2. Even in their nascent form, these songs are powerful, soulful, and hopeful.
  3. The lack of ornamentation suits the album's themes, as the narrator wrestles with reconciling his youthful ambitions with middle-age reality.
