Record Review: John Vanderslice

John Vanderslice
Romanian Names
[2009, Dead Oceans]

FULL REVIEW HERE. To put it simply, I just wasn't very impressed with this album. To get more perspective on Vanderslice's work, I revisited Pixel Revolt and Emerald City. Romanian Names just doesn't come close to the greatness of either of those records. I saw that NPR is calling this album one of his best, but I have to respectfully disagree. If you're new to this great singer/songwriter, go check out one of his previous two albums first.

Buy it
