    Can't fault this album, its not everybodys thing, but it wasn't mine till I listened to it again. I think one of the main reasons Devendra is so awesome is because he has such an imagination that is reflected in his music and lyrics. I always think a complete album always sounds fresh and this is like diving into newly settled snow every time.

    Not my personal favourite, but definitely Devendra's best so far. Solid, haunting, jolly, illusive (if not trippy) folk in the purest of its form.

  1. Though his second CD has a charming Ambrose Bierce quality to it, a little goes a long way.
  2. Banhart mixes a relaxed bearing and a tense vocal delivery in a fascinating manner. [#245, p.51]

    It’s as simple as songwriting can get; as striking as songwriting can get.
