  1. Beneath the disheveled exterior is an ace storyteller with a Raymond Carver-esque gift for mapping out the troubled contours of a character’s life with a few well-chosen details.
  2. For a principled slacker like Snider, diffidence is an aesthetic principle, but here it tends to obscure some affecting little songs.

    A typical Snider album, well written, hitting all emotions and making it all rhyme. Well done Mr. Snider.

    Reminds me of Howe Gelb. Great stories and music that is enjoyable to chill to. Not usually a country fan but I recognize good songwriting when I hear it and this transcends genre boundaries. Full Review »
