Emotional, quiet, and acoustic – seems like an appropriate way to describe the work of M. Ward. Before he was a “Monster of Folk”, he was just a man trying to write some indie-acoustic rock, and this was the release that landed his first spot on the charts… giving way to M. Ward fever (She & Him, Monsters of Folk, and M. Ward-based indie-rock madness). The biggest downfall? Once you hear an M. Ward release, it’s all kind of the same.
