This was the first Blue Rodeo album I bought, and I've been a fan ever since. While this was a moody, and at times, ethereal listen, I have never found anyone else as adept at taking the listener to those dim, smokey rooms where tales of heartache, regret, resignation, and triumph are aired in a way that embraces melancholy without ever deepening it.
They take you to those places of emotional trauma and anguish and allow you to examine your own forays, willing, and otherwise to those places in a way that lets you examine every corner of the experience without being so crippled by the review that you can't even function.
An irresistable musical journey through the kinds of wounds we all suffer at one time or another.
