As a dual collaborative effort from two of today's stronger voices in indie folk/Americana, this lacks any kind of highlight or memorable moment that warrants multiple listens. It has its moments of beauty yet the spark seems to dissipate a tad bit quick.

The lush instruments are overshadowed by how sleepy and generic the songwriting is.

Fav Tracks: What Heaven's Left, Follow The Water, The Bitter Suite (Pájaro/ Evil Eye / Tennessee Train)

Worst Track: Midnight Sun

Light 5 (52/100, 5/10)

This album picks up almost exactly where the two bands' 2005 EP "In The Rains" ended. Sam Beam has not sounded like this vocally since The Shepherd's Dog. It's a very familiar sounding record that will please fans of the first EP and early Iron & Wine. Besides the nostalgia, the listen is refreshing and I was pleasantly surprised by the content of this LP. It will make the year end list for sure.

Resembles a candid nostalgia through Americana music at its best side, on the contrary, it also compiles an eloquentless delivery with fearful techniques. It is a decent teamwork by Calexico & Iron and Wine anyway. Enjoyed it!
