    This is like Bob Dylan meets Inside Lewyn Davis. It has that poetic sound that is filled with both joy and sorrow that has the symbolic value of alt-country and the wisdom of folk. Beautiful.

    He put a tour playlist up on Spotify a little while back, mostly consisting of old-school country and '60s folk, things like that.

    I've loved Joe since 'Nation of Heat', and have gotten so many plays out of the EPs and the first two albums. I actually shed a tear the first time I heard Hymn #101. So it pains me to say that this new one, 'Windfall', is a disappointment. There are just too many unmemorable ballads for me, and the production is too 'smooth' - I miss the rougher, rawer sound of the earlier records. Of course, he has to move on, and I can't blame him for wanting to change his sound. I wonder what other people think?

    Listening to the new album just now....will be hard to be as good as Messenger, one of the best releses of 2010 in my opinion...but what i heard so far is really good stuff.
