Very good album. His best since Sea Change, which is, in my opinion, his best album.

I like it too but I'm still waiting for him to give us a masterpiece showing us how good he can be at songwriting and composition. When I first heard Mellow Gold and saw him in concert in Santa Cruz when that album was current I was floored by his creativity and playfulness. Then when I backtracked to his previous albums and found gems like Hollow Log and his blues/folk influences came out I got really excited about what would come next. I've enjoyed all of it since but I'm waiting for him to stop coasting and goofing around with production tricks and give us something really substantial to absorb. Either a whole album of acoustic blues/folk or a dozen songs in the vein of Beercan would be really cool. I think he's capable of much more than he's given us so far.
