Album Review
Justin Davisson
Reviewed 2008-10-12 
Nice, sort of ethereal folk rock with a mix of Americana, gothic and international music. Similar of the early days of the 4AD label or the acoustic side of Swans, Dead Can Dance and Faith + The Muse. Altogether great instrumentation and vocals.

(((((1)))))) Slow gothy folk into huge, wide open sound ‘ala Swans.
(((((2))))) Nice “Americana noir” track, with lots of guitar twang, mandolin and sultry vocals.
(((3))) Steady, slow, wavering and strummy gets much louder later on but drags a little.
((((4)))) Bright mandolin chords, dramatic tempo, really good vocals.
(((5))) Latin guitar chords, nice build up with vibrating notes underneath, vocals aren’t “on” enough though.
((((6)))) Nice, moody 80’s indie-rock/4AD teel.
((((7)))) Nice country-folk with fantastic vocals.
((((8)))) Reprise of #4 with more worldly elements (percussion, wordless vocals, twang, etc).
((((((9)))))) Very cool mix of 60’s ballads, psych-folk ‘ala Damon & Naomi, bluesy guitar, sitar and organ. Groovy!
(((((10))))) Long, moody with bass, sitar and melodica. All of which floats off into its own nice ‘lil space.
