Another Step

I've been a fan of Arlo's from the get-go, but haven't purchased an album in quite some time. When I read about this release on Expecting Rain I thought I'd give it a go, and the surprise has been pleasant. Folk singers and symphony orchestras may seem like over-reaching, but this work is a positive step in a new direction. The songs fit the arrangements and vice versa. A few of them are quite moving, and St. James Infirmary is nothing short of stunning in it's mixture of verbal pathos, and musical wit - and Arlo's guitar work is terrific. My only complaint is the sameness of so many of the tunes - a little more variety, and maybe a few up-tempo numbers wouldn't have hurt.
