Some great tracks, including the cover of Nirvana's Bloom.

Starts off really strong, but tends to wail on a bit and repeat the same sound - in parts that it doesn't it is uninteresting.

Definitely some good parts though and worth a listen. The opener is great.

The first country album I ever listened to. I love the sound and the passion in it. Sturgill Simpson writes a beautiful letter to his newborn son. It is a brilliant welcome to the world with messages to people of all ages about the world we live in and the best ways to fully experience life. I love the Nirvana cover, it is a fantastic reimagination of a classic song. The sailing themes and sounds tie the album together so it sounds very cohesive. The album flows perfectly. It transitions from slower tempos to fast-paced tracks seamlessly many times, without being jarring or awkward at any times.

Not as strong as the previous album, but still intriguing. The In Bloom cover is cool, the songwriting is as strong as ever, but it sounds a little over-produced. It's like the Waylon Jennings sound went a little like 80s country instead.

I admire this album. I appreciate the genre-bustin'. But It's still got that modern country singing thing going on. Makes me wonder if someone can unlearn that way of singing.

The album cover looks exactly like how the music sounds.

Favorite tracks: Welcome To Earth (Pollywog), Breakers Roar

Definitely not to my tastes, but neither is it a bad album. (The Nirvana cover was the only cringe-inducing moment for me.) I can't get around the twang in the vocals. Some of the instrumentation is interesting and decidedly not country/western, but others are obviously so.

Leaves me craving more stories from the sea. I'm not a huge country fan, but I really loved this. I want more.
