    That's a big part of Sam's genius, the way he'll shift these songs around until, while you can still hear the original, they're reharmonized into something new and wonderful. He might not think of himself as much of a songwriter, but he's an often astounding melodicist.
  2. It sets up the tension between the often gentle voice and its malevolent surroundings, and this, his third collection of re-arranged traditionals, oscillates between the sweet and the almost apocalyptic, often to great success.
  3. It takes a unique kind of ambition to produce something like I See the Sign, but the wonder isn't just that he does it, but that he does it so well.
