Why it’s so good...
The fall of 2008 would’ve been a really hard time to survive for me without Ray LaMontagne.
Trouble re-taught me what it is to feel.
I’m a sucker for acoustic guitar-driven music, soulful singers, string quartets, and all live recordings.
And this album possesses each of those.
Assuming you’ve heard the man and are already aware of how mind-blowing and heart-quenching his voice is, this collection of songs is so well written. You want to hear a love song that isn’t like every other one you’ve heard- this album is packed with them.
It’s honest and real, to the point that I really feel like I’m becoming acquainted with Ray as I listen. And you can tell that he’s aware of each piece of the song and what it’s meant to communicate.
