Ryan you really nailed this review. I can't remember the last time I was this enthralled and blown away by an acoustic album. The Dashboard and Spill Canvas comparisons were EXACTLY what I thought of the first time I listened. Though being an old bastard, I was reminded of the time Ryan (getwellboss.... wherever he is hiding) stole the drive thru copy of Swiss Army Romance from the campus radio station.
This album really is flawless as far as an acoustic album goes. The only criticism I can even think of is I wish there were some "happier" tracks on it, but that's just my own selfish desire coming through.
Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you can relate to the comparisons too.
