    Some of those songs say relatively deep things about the human lot. I don't remember much of it, but some lyrics like the "we can be stronger than industry/as long as we realise/that there are things we don't need" etcettera. It's subversive songwriting in a way. Something rare these days. It's so accessible and yet describes a world you will only recognize if you've seen some rather unaccessible parts of life. Expand

  1. Packed with intriguing melodies. [Mar 2005, p.99]
  2. This is the folky, bluesy, jangly-guitar-slinging sound of somebody who has made a practice of walking in boots three sizes too big for so long that they finally fit, and it delivers enough promise to inspire big ideas about what could happen when he outgrows them.
  3. There’s no way he sounds 19.
