Editorial Reviews

It's a rare singer/songwriter that can credibly display dual sides of his musical personality - one who can qite throughly and convincingly operate in opposite realms of popular music. With Please come Home, Dustin Kensrue joins those elite musical ranks. Indeed, with this batch of soul searching acoustic songs, which range from the dark, pyhilosophical and introspecti ve to the tender,k Kensrue in more likely to snare listeners more in tune with the work of Bruce Springsteen, ElvisCostello and Ryan Adams. Bombining classic folk with earthy blues, melodic country and deep soul, Kensrue creates a unique aural landscape complementing his music versatility. 'A lot of the material is a little more down to earth, which is one of things that I tried to do with these songs,' says Kensrue. 'I get a little heady with the Thrice songs. And I like doing that - I think people like engaging in that but I wanted these to be more folky, in the sense that this is music coming from a natural place.'

Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue has a seemingly limitless supply of tricks up his sleeve. If you thought "Vheissu" was a curve ball, wait till you hear this! With "Please Come Home", Dustin has once again done something really different, and really great. Eschewing practically all of his past musical trademarks in favor of a stripped-down, acoustic folk rock album, he still sounds far from out of his element. Even the vocals here are completely different. You could probably listen to this album 100 times, and it would still never cross your mind that it was made by the guy from Thrice, if you didn't know better.

At 29 minutes, the album goes by disappointingly fast, but then, this album could probably never be long enough. Witness the country-rock opener, "I Knew You Before", the harmonica-laden ballad "Pistol", the short but sweet "Blood and Wine", which I swear is practically a dead ringer for Johnny Cash (it's so convincing, in fact, that I at first thought it might even be a cover). And, last but not least, the absolutely jaw-dropping title track, with its touching lyrics and STELLAR vocal performance, makes for a definite high point for me.

This album just could not have been a more pleasant surprise. As much as I'm looking forward to the new Thrice material coming up this year, this has really raised the bar. And, as a bonus, Teppei Teranishi even contributes some piano here and there. So, that's twice the Thrice (heh). Anyway, bad puns aside, this is highly recommended. Not all Thrice fans may care for this, but if you keep an open mind, you'll definitely want to pick it up.

This is a awesome album. Too be fair and honest though, this is not really my style of music at all. But, I'm a huge Thrice fan and a big Dustin Kensrue fan. I think he is a amazing artist. I've seen Thrice twice, and a solo show of Dustin's once and he sounds fantastic live. The acoustic stuff he did really shows off his voice and the range that he has. This album only shows that even more so. This album truly shows how much talent Dustin has. This is so far removed from Thrice its not even funny. If you listened to this album not knowing any better, it would be hard to imagine that Dustin is the lead vocals on a hardcore band. It sounds completely different, and truly shows of the range and ability of Dustin Kensrue.

This really feels like a personal album to me. You can tell this is music that means something to Dustin, and he is really branching out trying something new and interesting. While this might not be everyone's cup of tea, it's a very well made album and shows of a different but equally good side of Dustin Kensrue.

I've been a fan of Thrice for a while now. I've always been more keen to their heavier stuff rather than their softer stuff, but I when I heard Dustin Kensrue's solo effort, I immediately fell in love with it. The first song I heard, is ironically enough the first song on the album, "I Knew You Before." I knew Thrice was going in new directions with "Vheissu," but I never expeected this. It was a totally enthralled by the music and vocals. It's beautiful folk rock in the raw. Anyone, who likes music in general should enjoy this album.

Key Tracks:

I Knew You Before - song about a good girl gone bad, great lyrics

Pistol - ballad about Dustin's wife, great harmonica

Please Come Home - beautiful ballad that seems to be an homage to the Bible story of the Prodigal Son

Blood and Wine - 100% raw acoustic rampage, very much like Johnny Cash

Blanket of Ghosts - just a great song with great lyrics

2 years and about a thousand spins later, and this album is still as amazing as the first time. It might even hold a firm place as my single favorite record of all time.

At a time when every aging lead singer of a once popular punk scene band is picking up an accoustic guitar and crapping out a folk/country album, it takes a lot to stand out. For Dustin Kensrue the lyrics shine so far above what anyone else in the industry is doing he definitely sets himself apart. Half of the time you swear Kensrue stumbled across a stack of un-recorded Johnny Cash songs and breathed life into them in a way that even Cash couldn't (and I say that as a huge Johnny Cash fan).

Every song on the album will at some point be your "favorite". "I Knew You Before" starts to album out with an energy that most accoustic efforts just don't have (think of the last time you suffered through a whole ablum of some jerks' boring, slow accoustic ballads) and that energy carries through the entire ablum, but is translated in a distinctly different way for each song. Stripped down guitar only tracks like "Consider the Ravens" and "Weary Saints" are a great example of how to lose the extra instruments without losing the energy. The title track to Please Come Home is a modern translation of the story of the prodigal son, which just might move you to tears if you've been there. The album closes with "Blanket of Ghosts", a beautiful song with so much soul it's hard to believe a white guy from Orange County wrote it.

All in all probably the best 8 tracks you'll hear for a very long time.
