10 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Eight years and seven albums since Mike Rosenberg took Passenger solo, he arrives at a sweet spot between indie pop and traditional folk. The Boy Who Cried Wolf is an album to escape to, road trip ready with a trunk full of hearty choruses. As ever, Rosenberg is most impactful when his songs are simple, like the achingly romantic “And I Love Her” (a love song you’ll wish was written just for you). Meanwhile, “Sweet Louise”’s meandering melody recalls his street-performer beginnings, and the twinkling pianos of “Lanterns” light the way home.

GOOD!

Michael Rosenberg is the second coming of Yusef Islam (Cat Stevens)! The voice, the lyrical style, is just amazing!
