What really appeals to me is that the album is pretty minimally produced. The singer-songwriter ethic really comes through. But not more than on "Closing Time", Dan's interpretation of his own song with his band Semisonic, which becomes a piano ballad. It's amazing in this interpretation and really lets the lyrics shine. Dan has stated that the song uses leaving a bar as a metaphor for being born, and that comes through here.
So it's a low-key singer-songwriter album that is definitely not boring, with many beautiful arrangements and a real demonstration of Dan Wilson's skills at songwritring. Well done.
Warning: some of these songs will be stuck in your head for days on end.
Be sure to check out the complete interview with World Cafe's Talia Schlanger (who nails it with all the right focus, questions and setups).
Also 5 out of 5 stars!
