iTunes Review

With Jay Nash’s fifth studio album, the Los Angeles troubadour has honed his talent for blending classic country with folk and rock to forge his own style. Though the opening song, “Wander,” is tangled in the tones of American roots music, Nash’s songwriting has a foundation of melancholy indie that’s sometimes reminiscent of early Coldplay and The Bends–era Radiohead. “Twist My Arm” follows with kitchen-sink percussion bolstered to bouncy parlor piano. Here his vocals take on a deeper and more guttural timbre, informed by Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder—though his ramshackle Basement Tapes–inspired sound collages bump into innovative production tricks that owe more to Gomez. “White Whale” ushers in more professional-sounding drums that gallop like horses alongside electric guitar that may have used distorted feedback that sounds like the mating calls of those sea mammals. In the standout “Art Thief,” Nash reflects on a real-life event involving a San Francisco man who stole a Picasso before fleeing to Marin in a cab.

Customer Reviews


Another great album! Every song is a gem and tells a great story. Thanks Jay Nash!

Mostly unsuccessful

I usually like Jay's work, and this album is no exception when it comes to superb guitar. He's an excellent musician. As a singer, however, he leaves something to be desired on this set of songs, too often not quite reaching the note he's going for, or otherwise being just a bit out of tune. Lyrics are fine, guitar work excellent, but vocally, it's simply not very well done.

Gorgeous sound

Every album of Jay's is packed with exceptional, quality music. There's something about this one that feels like a new departure- maybe a little more undertones of melancholy, or possibly more personal lyrics. Whatever it is, one thing is for sure: it's his best album yet.
