I was definitely very surprised with this album. It was not the post hardcorish joint i thought it would be. At first i didnt like it but after numerous listens it really grew on me and it is one of my favourite LPs currently.
I agree with your score....craig has a great voice but i still feel like there is untapped potential for him as a musician and i hope he really discovers it in up coming releases.
That album is so sick, not feeling that review at all. JC straight pulled out all the stops for a stellar debut featuring some top notch nu-jazz/slow groove jams. Can't wait for the next album in 2010!
And yes the 2 songs pointed out as the worst are nowhere being weak... the only thing sucky are the interludes but all the songs especially Children of Divorce, kills!
