CT Review: Over the Rhine
I can’t believe the big day is here; I’ve been listening to The Long Surrender since September, and it finally releases on CD today. In the time I’ve spent with it I’ve only become more confident that it’s my favorite Over the Rhine album yet– something I attribute in large part to Joe Henry’s involvement as producer, but even more so to the songs, which continue to get their hooks in me and surprise me anew every time I play the thing. Suffice to say, a really special album. My brand-new, five-star CT review is posted today; my much-longer rave is still available here.
