I bought the vinyl on Friday night and haven't gotten around to listening to that yet. But I do love it.
It is his first "band" album in a long time and definitely the best one by the 400 Unit.
He can't help it for setting the bar so fucking high. I think this record sits comfortably aside the other two most recent ones. It is also quite an accomplishment to move forward without repeating himself... and he's doing it on his own independent label, while collaborating with his wife without it seeming forced.
Plus, he seems like a great guy.
