Album Review
Micha S
Reviewed 2005-06-21
Low-key, beautiful music, mostly about love and its complications. Simple and good melodies, sung with a cracked and exposed male voice accompanied by acoustic guitars and piano in most parts (but fortified with other instruments in other parts). Many songs begin quiet and turn into almost hymns at the end. All songs are good. See asterisks for my picks.
*1. Begins very personal with dreamy keyboards, acoustic guitar and a violin, ends with Drums and wailing guitars. 2. A very Leonard Cohen acoustic guitar. Slow acoustic and slide guitar, joined by piano and accordion *3. A simple beautiful song. Acoustic guitars and two male voices. 4. Good melody. Gradual layering of instruments. Ends with a piano alone. 5. Similar to the previous song, with additional touches of a flute. 6. A strong dark song, fortified with horns. *7. A duet. Simple and touching. Cracked male voice and simple and pure female voice. 8. A slow song accompanied by piano.
9. A slow um-pah-pah song accompanied with an acoustic guitar, cello and accordion. beautiful horns join later. *10. A beautiful strong song accentuating Micah P. HinsonĂ­s cracked voice. A Small FCC. 11. A low key song for acoustic guitar and voice. A beautiful repeating of the theme with electric guitar and flue 12. A simple and good melody. Acoustic guitar and voice. 13. A slow song with delicate electric guitar.
