This is easily one of the most interesting, thoughtful, and unique rock and roll records of the year. If you like power pop, experimentation, albums where the artist reflects on his past (especially when that past includes–on a very personal level–the Kent State murders), that special brand of rocking that comes from Ohio–well, this is for you. I would write about it further, but Ken Shimamoto at The Stash Dauber, who drew my attention to it and is more astute than I, said it better right here.
