deaap2 The only artist I know who´s getting better and better with the years. Even after nearly three decades of songwriting!

heylisten There is much that can be said here, but what becomes immediately apparent is the enduring lightness seeping throughout this album.
Bill gives us a lot to chew on and you may be required to buckle down a few times to allow this to sink in and work its true magic, though he doesn't leave much room for overbearing and needless wallowing and instead chose to give us an inviting and contemplative take on life's trivialities, a spice that is sprinkled in such a way that is joyfully gripping and uniquely refreshing.
While in the past, Bill may have been more inclined to offer us a bird's eye view of life, here he is strapped down to earth, tugging across the sea and trailing down long winding roads, which wound up giving us what is perhaps one of his most delightfully based musical ventures yet, a journey we are most fortunate to partake in.
Simply put, this is the music of someone in awe and wonder, deeply infatuated with life in the most general sense of the word. Favorite track: Watch Me Get Married.

TungstenSeabass Lots of wonderful poetic details on this album, carried along by the luxurious vehicle of Callahan's rich voice. Favorite track: 747.

about

The voice murmuring in our ear, with shaggy-dog and other kinds of stories, is an old friend we're so glad to hear again. Bill’s gentle, spacey take on folk and roots music is like no other; scraps of imagery, melody and instrumentation tumble suddenly together in moments of true human encounters.
