The comparisons with Elliott's solo stuff are inevitable but beside the point. Though there are obvious common threads that span his entire body of work (his great voice, tuneful sensibility, and sincere perspective), this must be said with emphasis: When I want a Heatmiser album, nothing else will do it, and (IMHO) this is tied for #1 with 'Mic City Sons'
Everything about this LP is classic: The sequence of songs is fantastic, the band is tighter than hell, the production has real crunch, the performances are passionately executed, the arrangements are constantly throwing you curveballs (without sacrificing cool structures that get under your skin fast), the lyrics are tough and honest and catchy ("Your smile wraps around your head so you don't have to turn to show off your good side"), ... and there's not a bad tune in the whole bunch, not even close.
