Debut record by highly acclaimed singer/songwriter. Recorded with Lloyd Maines at the controls. Comes in a nice Digipak with lyric-booklet.
"Buckner comes from the Planet of the Sexy Sad Guys, the same planet Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and Kurt Cobain hail from. His voice is sad, yet urgent. `This guy's hurting,´ you say to yourself, even when the words don't add up to much. Buckner seems to take the pain and heartache of country music, filter it through the Dylan philosophy of solipsistic songwriting, and put the whole thing together with a healthy dose of punk-rock inspired do-it-yourself-ism. Accordion, mandolin, and dobro are used on top of Buckner's primal guitar playing to add real life grit to the waves of emotion. I like this record, but it seems that the emotions are more powerful than the musicianship." (Dirty Linen)
