More greatness from the bloke. This is an album that 2 parts, the acoustics that early lovers of Billy will find either fantastic or weak, the Wilco boys will find same, then the electric versions also will find split votes. So buy the album off itunes and mix and match between the acoustic and band set you will find your billy whether u like early "spy Vs Spy" or " Mermaid Avenue". Either way he is the descendant of Guthrie and Dylan but with a British sarcastic view of the empire. Billy strikes back!
