This album was recorded way back in 1988, before Chesnutt knew he was going to be a rock star and had no career to worry about, and it has a wonderful, disarming innocence. Some songs are great. Some are embarrassing. Some are both great and embarrassing. The recording, by Michael Stipe when he was still only a plain old superstar, is simple, just Vic and his guitar, with the occasional dab of keyboards. They sound like they were done in one take. Lyrically it's often clumsy but when Chesnutt keeps things simple, it works.
