Some sad bastard songs, some with infectious arrangements. 'I Loved Being My Mother’s Son' is some super sweet mamas boy type shit. 'Maybe I’m the Only One For Me' says it all. The upbeat arrangements really even out the less than sunny themes. This isn't 'ground breaking' music, whatever the heck that means, but I will never not appreciate a quality songwriter doing his or her thing. No need to reinvent the wheel, just always looking for the people who know how to make it spin.
I LOVE woods, so the fact they are the backing band for this just adds that much more for me personally. Not at all disappointed.
