With lyrical depth, imaginative musical arrangements and Abong's raw, stylish vocals. The album is beautifully produced with every nuanced aspect clearly present, enhancing the range of musical phrases and subtleties. One has to look at debut albums from Leonard Cohen and Connor Oberst to find the kind of lyrical accomplishment and vocal edge present on this release.
