One of two discs I received from different people for my birthday. I had admired this album since I first heard it at my friends house. Listening to it now on headphones, it doesn't disappoint. It's a mix of lushly orchestrated, introverted pop ('Andalusia', 'Antartica Starts Here'), and slightly more upbeat, jaunty numbers, with brass as well as the strings ('paris 1919'). It's a short album, but all of it sounds pretty great to me at this moment. None of the songs are especially musically complex, but the arrangements, and vocal delivery are great. There is also some great guitar work, both picked folk guitar and steel guitar.
