He needed Jaur to pull this off. And a half dozen better songs...I don't know maybe it'll grow on me.
Laur Joamets, but yes, I agree.

I've always called him "Jaur", I guess I forgot I was being funny and actually thought it was his name in my mind's eye :-)

I've liked him since Sunday Valley days but It disappoints me to say I'm not a fan of this one.


He's getting further away from me. I'll load up on more Childers and I'm becoming a fan quickly of Zach Bryan.

I'm gonna give it a go tonight. I hated his last album the first time I listened to it. Now I listen to it more than any of his others. He's not a guy to keep the same sound and I like that to a degree.

This album is extremely disappointing. I have no idea what he's doing.

I always appreciated his classic country sound with a modern twist. Vocals with a unique tone and great lyrics.

What's the reason they make it sound like he's singing into a tin can on almost this entire album? I understand mixing country and rock beats, but this just feels like a jumbled mess. He's not expressing anything that he's talented at on this entire album. I don't see me listening to this more than a handful of times ever, it's that bad.

I mean... if you read anything leading up to this, you kind of had an idea what to expect. I like the album, but it is closer to Arcade Fire meets ZZ Top than anything in his past. He’s said he’s going to do 5 albums, each with its own statement and sound, then move on.

He’s a weird, heady dude who has a specific artistic vision. It doesn’t surprise me that he got tired of a specific sound and moved on. It also doesn’t surprise me that fans who loved his country sound don’t like it. Just like I wouldn’t expect most of those fans to like CAN or Dungen or some other modern psychedelic band.

He may need to lay off the DMT a little bit.

I don't know about the album but okay as a heavy metal anime knockoff.

I've listened to it twice now. I don't hate it. I don't love it. I'll listen to it another couple of times and have a solid opinion.

He may have hit his peak w/ 'A Sailor's Guide to Earth'.

I'm kind of in this boat with it, as well.

It's not unlistenable, but it's not something I absolutely HAVE to hear again...

Hope he gets back to actual songs sometime, because there's 3 or 4 songs and then a bunch of cool sounds.

I'm a 'song' person.
