The man could fashion words together in ways that boggle the mind. This album is country trip-hop. There are sounds create the eqivalent of bad punk, and rips of Cash. I still dig some of the beats, the minor, and live recordings... even when they are loops. The album also includes a female vocalist that was well, she could go back to what she was doing and decay. "Hip-Hop ruined my life"? nawww, you ain't hip-hop no more. Maybe if i OD on drugs i could understand it better, until i enter that state save your money. out… Expand
