Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With his deep, gently blurred voice and wandering minor-chord songs, Buckner has created his most intensely beautiful and evocative album with Since. He's taken the spare sounds and textures of Devotion + Doubt, a record lauded by many but heard by few, and draped them behind a dense sonic scrim. In the past Buckner has relied on his voice to carry the hefty emotional freight of his lyrics of loss and desperation, but here, with a band that includes, in Buckner's words, "all the musicians I dreamed of recording with," he is free to liberate his baritone, and it slips and slides wonderfully throughout. There's an exuberance here; his subject matter hasn't changed, but he attacks it with an enthusiastic bombast. The songs are crammed right up against each other, and the lyrics are a cavalcade of paired alliteration ("horsey and the hopper", "brief and boundless", "twiced and townless"), oft-repeated favorite words (razed, faith, floor, rain, moon, li'l), and huge emotions hidden in small acts. It's a murky dream Buckner wanders; his opaque poetry suggests more than explains. It's hard to get a handle on exactly what is going on with such lines as "If I ever leave this 10-day room / I'll send my shallow ground to you." But the songs hit you--hard--just the same. --Tod Nelson

Review

A stunner and further proof that the future of rock may be country. -- Entertainment Weekly

Some folks just have to jump off the highest cliff and dive as deep as they can, seeking those jewels of song that are the hardest to find and easiest for chumps to mistake for fakes: the pearls of gut-wrenching despair. Buckner gives voice to the kind of loneliness that other people cannot fill, the blues and the abstract truth. -- No Depression

[T]he idiosyncratic vocals, often pretentious wordplay and country-folk mutations frequently create beauty and substance.... -- The Los Angeles Times
