Customer Reviews

This needs a review so badly.

Other than the completely terrible one below, that is. The point of a review isn't to assess an album's money-making potential. That is such an irrelevant and trivial thing to focus on, especially considering that this is Denison Witmer. I can almost guarantee you that the very last thing he considers when writing a record is how many copies it will sell. Please just stick to Nickelback and Lady GaGa albums. True musicians write music because they love music, not so they can make millions of dollars and be on MTV. Sorry, but I felt that something should be said.

Each carefully written song is complemented by equally brilliant instrumental arrangements (for reference see the title track). Fans of Ryan Adams, Sufjan Stevens (especially), The Swell Season, or any folk music should go ahead and click that "buy album" button. You will be glad you did.

Good, but...

Tagged by many music journalists as one of the most likely songwriters to fill the void left by Elliott Smith in the acoustic indie singer/songwriter movement, Denison Witmer catalogs the experiences of young adulthood in almost painfully honest detail. With a soft and sensitive voice that perfectly matches his laid-back 1970s California pop production and subtly expressive guitar work, he has gone from writing in his journal to becoming an intimate of like-minded artists like Damien Jurado and Pedro...
