Just got my copy... love it. I've been listening to it online for about a week now.
This is not as good an album as Real Gone, which is one of my favorite albums of all time, but it is a very good record and is promising as a long term favorite.
Speaking of pre-SFT albums, Are you into "Heart of Saturday Night" at all? That was my first exposure to him and I first heard it when I was about 9 years old. I love it, and still listen to it on occasion.
