    The man loves TOM WAITS so do I and I LOVE this album.
    More produced and fuller than his amazing debut there's still a really nice experimentation and home-made feel I can really hear PJ Harvey in there too which goes beautifully with his other influences Beefheart, Dylan and I'm guessing Stax soul if you love any of these buy it it's a charmer

    There's enough here certainly, though, to suggest he's one to keep an eye on. [Oct 2013, p.97]

    A masterful song cycle of raw confessionals, ghostly R&B and gritty stompers, all channelled via intense vocals that razor and soothe. [Nov 2013, p.94]

    What unifies the record is Beal’s ability to create concrete images within his abstract menagerie of sounds, which he then animates through his oddly charming and less paternal Screamin’ Jay Hawkins persona (also a good thing).
