    This was the first Iron & Wine album I ever heard and got immersed in... and I truly love it. But I don't quite understand why so many people only love this album. I know it has that fantastically raw, 4-track quality to it... but Our Endless Numbered Days is still a little raw and the songwriting is on par, if not better. (And I think the same can be said for the EPs The Sea & The Rhythm and Woman King). I guess I can see why The Shepherd's Dog may have turned a lot of fans off... since it is much more of a radical progression from the previous albums, but it is still quite splendid (as is Kiss Each Other Clean).
