iTunes Review

As impressive as his past work has been, Samuel Beam (a.k.a. Iron & Wine) blows away all expectations with Kiss Each Other Clean. Previous Iron & Wine releases have explored American roots music themes in quirky, provocative ways; this time, electronica elements are applied to old-fashioned song motifs and folk instrumental colors to gorgeous effect. Beam’s clear high tenor soars to serene heights, surrounded by subtly layered background vocals. The songs shift from sunny invocations of the past (“Tree By the River”) to shadow-haunted narratives (“Rabbit Will Run”) and oblique cautionary tales (“Monkeys Uptown”). A warm spiritual glow lights up the enraptured “Walking Far from Home” and the delicately shimmering “Godless Brother In Love”. Unexpected sonic curve balls — like the funky, saxophone-accent groove of “Big Burned Hand” and the use of analog synthesizer sounds on numerous tracks — keep things pleasantly off-balance. The seven-minute “Your Fake Name Is Good Enough For Me” closes the album with jazzy wails and prophetic visions.

Customer Reviews


Stunning collection of songs, had an immediate impact on me, this is an absolute must buy for anyone looking for quality song writing and composition. An instant classic. There won't be many that come close to this in 2011.

i want to love it

I want to love this album, every fibre of my being wants to love it but unfortunately I just can't seem to get my head around it. I loved sams early work and although the shepherds dog was a slight departure from his usual style I could still appreciate the music and I loved the album. The album introduced new instruments, new sounds and yet it still kept its inherent iron and wine-ness. However I just didn't get the same feeling with kiss each other clean, it felt like a complete departure from his original sound. An evolution of style is to be expected but this album just didn't feel like the iron and wine I fell in love with so long ago. Perhaps I just need a few hours to put the album on repeat and listen until I love it but for now I feel slightly disappointed after the long wait for a new album.......

great timeless classic album

so many great moments in this record iron and wine's song writing has reached new heights! i wouldn't say it's a different style only he's introduced a full band that compliments his songs that just sounds amazing.

Definitely put a smile on my face, i will treasure this for years to come :)
