iTunes Review

For his second album, 2004's Our Endless Numbered Days, Iron & Wine's singer, songwriter, and principal musician Sam Beam expanded his sonic palette considerably from his debut of gorgeous but stark acoustic folk. In stepping into a studio with Red Red Meat's Brian Deck, and bringing in other musicians like sister Sara on harmony vocals and Patrick McKinney on acoustic slide guitar, Beam invites us away from the bedroom and onto the porch for a breath of air. The music is still highly personal and brilliantly beautiful, and the lyrics remain filled with Southern gothic poetry, but there are pulses of gauzy, subtle rock and roll underneath it all, echoes of the band's live shows at the time and finding fruition on the 2005 EP, Woman King.

Customer Reviews

Folk Gold From Miami Wunderkind

This album is simply the best true folk album that has been released in years. There really is not a bad song on the track-list, though some highlights are "Naked As We Came," "Cinder and Smoke," "Fever Dream," and "Radio War." The acoustic guitar is downright amazing in this album and Sam Beam's voice is perfect and you can tell that he is a student of folk music. Top notch album, I'd give it six stars if I could.

Best Iron & Wine album

I think Iron & Wine is one of these artists where you can hear one song and know whether or not it is your type of thing. Upon first listen, I enjoyed this album but thought that much of it blended together, sounded similar. Upon repeated listens, each track stands out on its own and the album doesn't have a weak song. This is the quintessential Iron & Wine album and, contrary to other posters, is even good listening regardless of the weather. Last 2 tracks are personal favorites.

Mellow and amazing

This man with an acoustic guitar whispering into a mic creates a unique and subtle kind of beauty. Simple, almost minimalist, yet it still manages to evoke emotion in the listener. Listen to it while watching the sunset on a summer evening, with the volume low enough for you to still hear the wind and the shouts of the kids playing across the street. In my opinion, it is one of the most relaxing experiences possible.
