I gotta say I think this album's underrated. It's a low-stakes, very minimalist, lyrical ambient album, but the atmostphere is very intimate, the songs stick on one theme, the instrumentation and arrangements are beautiful and show tact and restraint, and the melodies are very catchy. I think he delivers on all counts.

Grandaddy, sadly, didn't really come through here. The record starts strong (Way We Won't, Brush with the Wild), and ends cathartically, but the middle 6 tracks are too boring, repetitive, self-pitying and lyrically banal to make this thing work. It's a breakup album, but half of the breakup songs are sorta bad.
