I have wondered what you've been up to - good to hear from you. As usual, the material is fantastic. Crisp, clean recordings, imaginative lyrics, etc etc. Some of the vocal distortion is so thick, it's hard to make out the words ('Rat House' in particular). 'Jacks and Aces' is a great Dylanesque number, even tho it assaults you with various musical styles. Some of them go on a bit too long, but all in all, it's hard to quibble. I'm a big fan of the 'Dire Straits meets Blair Witch' sound.
