He keeps the sadness, but throws a mist of gentle orchestration over the songs."Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Dressing his love-worn and cracking tenor in a sacred whisper of banjo, fiddle and post-Glass pulses, tracks such as 'Wild Bill Jones,' 'Little Johnny Brown,' and 'O Death' are transformed anew for this new age of dire consequence."0.1960832
