New Bill Callahan.

I just heard it today. Its a thing of beauty. Best album I've heard all year - not a duff track on it. Its a lush, pastoral affair. First album of his I've liked since Supper.

He ain't a smog no more, thats for sure.

Not a patch on River 'Aint Too Much To Love IMHO.

It's a very nice record, great development of the River Ain't Too Much To Love -> Whaleheart sound.. That last song is probably 4 or 5 minutes longer than it needs to be though. Bill certainly likes his horses, rivers and birds, doesn't he?

I know, I'm half thinking of heading over to Rock en Seine this year to see him, the tickets are dirt cheap, relatively speaking

Yeah that last track goes nowhere very very slowly. I do like most of the album, but I have to be honest and say I think it's a little boring in places.
