A ew indie discovery
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Ok, I've had a copy of this album since May of 2001, and I haven't stoppedwaiting for a new release by Kevin Devine. It's not the most polished album on the market, but that's part of the point. The vocals are exposed and usually accompanied by nothing but a single acoustic guitar. This one is for fans of early Elliott Smith. The music (i.e., guitar) is more simplistic than Smith's for the most part, but once again, that's not bad...just different. I can see Kevin Devine becoming qutie popular on the indie scene after a couple more releases, and I look forward to watching him progress as an artist. If you're one of those indie rockers who likes to get in on an artist before he/she is big, this is one to watch."
