Not the new Bob Dylan album I was wanting but this works fine

Not quite as special as his previous album but if ever there's an artist who's got into an effortless groove when it comes to releasing high quality new material it's Finn.

EDIT: ok, I now think this is at least as special as the previous album - if not more so. Bump.

The instrumentation is great on this album, it really sets the tone well. The lyrics and performances are so hit an miss that I just don't feel confident in rating this highly. I did enjoy this album for the most part, but at times this really just felt like homage to David Berman more than anything.

This was rather disappointing. I found this album to just feel uninspired and boring. Finn feels as generic as can be here with very little new or unique to set him apart from your standard run of the mill singer-songwriter.
