  1. This is literary rock as it should be.
  2. He's still writing finely observed vignettes that manage to intersect life as we live it with life as we wish we could live it, and as such, he has more in common with a short story writer than he does with the typical singer/songwriter.
  3. It's cool that he's trying to change things up, but there's no substitute for a strong result.
