to bad oberst rips off David Dondero so badly and at every turn - otherwise - nah - he still's nowhere near as good as David Dondero

The 'Next Of Kin' might make you spontaneous weep. It got me bad;)

A great album by any measure. I'm a vinyl collector/curator and listen to a lot of vinyl on a very high resolution system and loud volumes-- this is hands down a kick-ass mastering job and a flat-out great pressing. The vinyl was so quiet that I had to double check my volume knob after dropping the needle on it. Wow. Don't find many new releases in this league.

The music represents, IMO, some of Conor's best work-- particularly because he seems to have found a balance here between a beautiful imperfection and deft artistic restraint. With the grace of someone like a Will Oldham, he takes his vocals to the edge, almost goes too far, like it might all just fall apart, but manages to hold onto that edge song after song. A stark, powerful, and pretty damn personal work that connects universally. It's stripped down like a late sixties Dylan session, and feels almost alive in the room with you. Get it.

This is some really good music. Maybe the best songs Conor Oberst wrote since the "I'm wide awake it's morning" Album. Listening to the vinyl pressing of "Ruminations" left me with mixed feelings though. Both sides have some pretty annoying crackling for the first few minutes, but play very quiet afterwards. It's a very quiet sounding, intimate record for which I would have prefered a cleaner pressing. Note: Also an exchange copy brought no relief - crackling on the same spots is still there and still quite audible.

Great album. Cant wait to get this one, despite that album cover.
