So I picked up the album on account I had the song 'My Patch' stuck in my head from playing the video game Little Big Planet. I am happy to report that the rest of the album has that quirky, playful, energetic feel to it across the board. While other Amazon reviewers have described Jim Noir's sound as a mix of Paul McCartney and Beach Boys, I would add that there are other songs in this album that reflect influences from such groups as Super Furry Animals and Blur to name two (check out 'I me You I'm Your' for the former and 'Turbulent Weather' for the latter). If you like Jims work here you may as well pick up his self titled 2008 release.
This is a fantastic album by a great artist. I was introduced the the song "My Patch" from the game LittleBigPlanet. I loved the song and listened to more of his music via Pandora. Eventually I knew I had to have the CD. It's good!
