his new s/t album is definitely my favorite. it took me over five listens to realize that, but man when it hit, it hit deep and with very little remorse. there's something very haunting in a man with only an acoustic guitar and an intricate soul.
The new version of "I See a Darkness" is complex and great. It's a complete overhaul of the original, and it feels so much more upbeat vibrant. It's a totally different song, and I think Steve Albini's work on Now Here's My Plan contributes a lot to that.
