Don’t give up, as I almost did! I first thought the voice of Brett Sparks was strange. Every now and then I even thought he sang out of tune. But he isn’t, I think. Well, I don’t care anymore. After a while his voice declared the words perfect for this gently kind of alternative country music. It all sounds so natural, like someone’s old and folky wooden imagination. Yet I find it unusual, sometimes a little bit bizarre, like in “The Loneliness of Magnets”, where the refrain is funny in its merciful absurdity. The melodies are generally awesome. The best tracks are “Love is Like”, “The Petrified Forest” and “The Winding Corn Maze”. Something is hidden here, but I don’t know what it is: small mysteries of chords deep inside the handsome forest.
