The Shepherd’s Dog

I’ve had this CD for a while now and it didn’t even cross my mind to write a review of it until this morning on my way to work. I stuck the CD in to let it just play from front to back because I had Boy With a Coin stuck in my head and realized I hadn’t heard the rest of the entire CD. There are a few select good songs on it such as “Boy With a Coin” and “Resurrection Fern” but all in all the CD just really isn’t my cup of tea. This song for instance is “White Tooth Man” which sounds more like a cross between Phil Collins and Ghandi than the Iron and Wine I loved in “Our Endless Numbered Days” or “The Creek Drank the Cradle”. The CD is a little too organic and out there for me. With lyrics about bales of hay and mother earth, I’ll leave this one to you hippies.
