    This is highly listenable, but equally disturbing.

    It is the sound of a sweet soul contemplating deliverance; as mellow and fierce and fearful as that.

    Never pedantic or didactic, never extreme or aggressive, Poor Moon is a warm hand on a cold shoulder, a vintage piece of soul music for new times in need.

    To put it bluntly, Taylor's music sounds bad on paper, but good in headphones.

    Wow. It's one of those albums that feels like you're hearing the voice of a friend you haven't talked to in a long time. So long ago in fact you forgot what they sounded like or what their name was. I will never forget these songs, or that short weird time in my life in which I found them. This guy is a heck of a song writer, looking forward to hearing his next album. The band is solid, with moments of excellence here and there. Expand
