Kristian Matsson’s music is proof that they do indeed make ’em like they used to. Shit, in some ways, maybe even better. The Bob Dylan/Nick Drake comparisons are obvious, but you get a far wider variety of emotions packed into each song, and he makes you feel them on a much deeper level than I’ve ever got off of either. Even from the first time I listened to this, I felt some weird kind of longing and nostalgia. It makes me think of times gone by, people I’ve known, life, love, death, the past, present and the future.
