The album is marked by Middleton’s characteristicly Scottish voice, wonderful lyrics, and skillful interplay between his vocals and guitar/keyboards. But it feels somewhat sad–filled with longing and sorrow. Like a last album. Even on the quick, catchy, and charming single, “Red Travellin’ Socks,” there is a sense of finality. It’s as if he’s created an album that consists entirely of tracks from the last song on side B. A very interesting result, for sure, and a moving experience, this record
gets my highest recommendation.
BONUS OLDER STUFF!
