8/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd January 2018
2nd album from eccentric Chicago artist has a fuller, more produced feel than the debut, but still puts Beal’s unusually expressive voice in the foreground as an unconventional storyteller with an insightfully twisted perspective. The music is a mix of acoustic folk, semi-smooth R&B/soul and street-corner bluesy boot-stompers—with lyrics that read like intensely personal poetry of the soul. Includes a guest appearance from Cat Power. Sometimes recalls Tom Waits, Dave Van Ronk and R. Stevie Moore. An unusual and subtly powerful album.
