    For a crème-de-la-creme collection, Thrawn is a little too spotty, as a surfeit of clever lyrical and musical ideas war with each other within some songs. But given how many uninspired, guitar-plucking singer-songwriters walk the Earth, it's hardly a major flaw that King Creosote has too much to offer.

    It presents a picture of Anderson as a gifted songwriter and heartfelt singer not limited by a signature style, but who still manages to express a strong personality and distinct creative voice.

    The 12 songs on Thrawn have been culled from six studio albums released between 2003 and 2009 (Anderson has released more than two dozen albums independently) and serve as an excellent introduction to his work.

    Anderson's baffling work rate seems to have adorned his songs with a wide variety of skins. From a curatorial standpoint, what's been arranged and sequenced here goes deep in the name of diversity.
