The album represents a kind of artistic homecoming for Owens. Nowadays, he's the proud owner of a vintage Airstream trailer, which he keeps in California's Joshua Tree country, and where several of the new songs were written during sojourns there in 2005 & 2006. Despite the depth and weight of its subject matter, though, this is a winningly upfront and approachable album, replete with hummable hooks and deftly layered arrangements, centred around the burnished colours, masterly phrasing and vibrant timbres of Owens' singing.
"Every time he sings a song, he means it and feels it with every fibre of his being. Now that is something special Scotland's most engaging and haunting singer-songwriter" from Irvine Welsh's sleevenotes.
