I love bluesy, folksy music with lyrics that at times make you laugh, and at others make you cry. That said, this album far exceeded my expectations. Callahan has a wonderful voice, a wicked sense of irony, and years of pain, love, and loss which he gently, and eloquently, explores. The album presents a range of styles and influences, from "Overdose" which is a Tom-Waits-meets-Taj-Mahal Blues tune, to "Yesler St." with a Country feel and Van Morrison phrasing. I must confess, I'm a bit addicted to "Texas When You Go" -it has the haunting heartache of an Irish folk song. This is music I will play on a miserable, gray, rainy day to cheer me up, or when I want to take the edge off a ridiculously sunny day. Either way, I will keep it in my collection for years to come.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
