Review

"Exquisite and thrilling ... Wow." --San Fransisco Chronicle

...a beguiling, bewitching treat, like absinthe-laced gumdrops: part rickety graveyard waltz, part hand-overheart chamber pop, part avante garde piano theater. --Entertainment Weekly

Patrick Watson has really grown over the past few records and it is immediately apparent in this album.

There are still the haunting and magical piano lines and there seems to be more focus then the previous album Close To Paradise. Bass,Piano,Banjo,Drums,Bells,Violin, and many more are the instruments mold perfectly to Patrick's melodies.

Overall this is easily one of Patrick Watsons finest albums and possibly one of the finest albums of 09.

Not that I would know anything about it, it must be hard to be in a band these days given how many are trying to be heard. It ain't 1980 any more for sure.

I personally think that music overall is in a transitional period so it will be interesting to see what happens. I am not convinced that the "album" format is entirely relevant these days but there are many a band who still employ its form and thank the stars that Patrick Watson does.

I think he understands the pace of an album. This is an album that has drama, texture and depth to it. It has expanse and intimacy all at the same time.

It's an album I come back to time and time again since its release and therefore have recommended it to many a friend.

It's a superb album.

I heard an interview with patrick Watson and his musical collaborators on National Public Radio's All Things Considered just prior to christmas. This interviewhelped me in two ways. First I learned about new music and second I found some new music for my niece. Even more amazing was the fact that Mr watson and crew could compose a short piece right there in the studio. call it a parlor trick but, it was pretty neat never the less. It seems that Mr Watson employs "found objects" into his musical instrumentation. So Mr siegal furnished a bycycle pump, a box of dry cereal, and other things. These items along with the winning entry of a poetry contest were combined to make an impromptu song. I was hooked. You know what? This musical collection is a gem.
Sincerely, Means Johnston III

Wooden Arms is a great album, I'd definitely recommend it. I have to admit I enjoyed Close to Paradise a little more because of the vibe that it gave off. Wooden Arms is fairly similar, but different enough to avoid being repetitive. Watson is amazing

This is a really wonderful album, full of rich textures & musical ideas. Their use of percussion alone adds a great depth & color to these gorgeous songs. Subtle & quiet, perhaps, but oh so rewarding!
