Album Review
Reviewed 2004-09-28
More of Oneil’s blend of down home experimental acoustic folk rock. Amid the quiet and more traditionally song-structured pieces are inventive and slightly noisy bits. Oneil has both ends mastered and this is an excellent, albeit not “beautiful” album. Her singing, where she sings, is an unaffected, almost plain, instrument. Her guitar is frequently distorted.

1. Mechano-industrial rhythm under a gentle wordless vocal and muted guitar
2. Sweetness and quiet country stylings
3. Nice violin accents
4. Woolly ramble
5. Brief but pretty
6. Rough-edged gem; a pretty song not over-polished
7. Accordion drone and banjo; what more need be said?
8. After a twitchy intro, a slow, dark ballad
9. FXed guitars and a piano from one of the rooms down the hall in an empty house
10. Slow, fully arranged ballad that builds nicely; singing is gorgeously balanced between conversational start and the final crescendo
11. Slightly jarring violin and distorted guitar support up-front and simple vocal
12. I would say front-porch nice but there’s something odd about the reverb-y banjo
