Customer Reviews


This is one of those albums you listen to from beginning to end! Great work Yarn!

Perfect Yarn

This is my new favorite record from my all-time favorite band. Fell in love with Yarn back in 2007, 2008 -- when they were still playing the tiny funky places (actually they still sometimes do that so keep an eye out people, and BE THERE FOR THAT). They'd just put out their first record (Yarn) and then Empty Pockets right after. Those gorgeous harmonies, lyrics that stick with you, amazing musicianship (repeating, SEE THEM LIVE), the whole deal. Those two were my first and til-now favorites, though I've been completely on board with everything they've done since then. Except THIS record just slays me. Their high-water mark, I think. There are some great detailed song-by-song reviews out there (No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, others) but in a nutshell: if you already know Yarn's music, then you know what to expect. This exceeds all expectations. If you're new to them, then This is the Year is a super start -- that classic Yarn sound, like nobody else can do. It's records like this that go into a cd player and never get taken out, and get people out to shows on school nights. This record and this band are the real deal.

Best Work Yet

Through the years I've had many favorite songs by the band, but this is far and away my favorite album they've ever released. It's intimate, spirited and even funny at times (i.e. I'm A Man). Nothing better than a collection of songs that actually take you on a journey. Very well done boys. Long may you run!
