I bought this album on a whim from iTunes sometime in 2005. I ended up liking the simplicity of it right away.
It’s nothing overly extravagant or lush. The vocals and minimal instruments are distant and muffled at times, and the songs short and to-the-point.
Yet to this day, I still find myself randomly replaying the opening track in my head – something about it “sticks” with me.
And once I hear the entire first song again, I have to listen to the rest of the album.
