Boomkat Product Review:
One of the most unjustly overlooked songwriters in America, Damien Jurado returns with another slow burning, but quite excellent album. The pervading tone of moroseness remains in check, but for these songs Jurado switches the focus from character-based vignettes to more personal matters. 'Gillian Was A Horse' begins upbeat and upscale, a little like a Wilco track stuck in first gear, but this serves Jurado's song rather well, and although the full-band feel isn't called upon perhaps as often as it could be, when it does, the results are solid: 'Go First', the luscious 'Last Rights' and the slowed down, gloomy balladry of 'Dimes' all deliver brilliantly, while the quieter, more thoroughly stripped down moments yield just as well, albeit in a more low key fashion: an Elliott Smith influence is abundantly clear on tracks like 'Trials' and 'Caskets', although there's nothing derivative here, and the album should serve as an excellent, well rounded introduction to Jurado's work.
