Album Review

Solitary, rootsy post-punk of the best kind, delving into somewhat dark and twisted terrrain, but invested with a lot of passion and unflinching grit. The sparse and haunting arrangements put acoustic guitars at the forefront, but vary the pace with occasional searing licks, eerie solo piano, and harmony vocals. It's one of the relatively few releases of this type that will find a comfortable home in the collections of those with an ear for either stark folk-rock or grunge.

Customer Reviews

One of the best debut CDs out there!

This an album that grabs you right way. I am surprised that not many people know about Hayden. Listen to this entire record and it will move you. This release doesn't sem to have Bunkbeds which was released on the first version of this CD (that song is well worth tracking down along with the more recent Tree's Lounge). Sample 'bad as they seem' and 'skates' and you'll find it hard not to diwnload this masterpiece.

Happy I found it

I been waiting a long time to find this song, "Bad as They Seem", for a long time now. Happy that I found it. I downloaded a few other songs of his and they are good as well.

So happy to find Hayden.... my cd is all scratched

This Cd is awesome, but I agree its missing one of the best songs... my favs are bunkbeds, bad as it seems, and skates!!

The critically acclaimed musician first appeared in the early '90s, armed with only a four-track tape recorder like his heroes in Sebadoh and Pavement. Coupling his unnaturally low range with an extremely detuned guitar, Hayden...
