The past few weeks have seen releases from a CYHSY side project, as well as a solo effort from frontman Alec Ounsworth, but neither compare to this album, which was self-released back in 2005. In fact, even CYHSY have yet to produce anything half as good as their debut. I'm listening to this album properly for the first time in a long while, and it still hasn't lost it's immediate impact to astound and amaze. Ounsworth's vocals - he slurs like a drunk stroke victim throughout the album - add to CYSHY's unique sound, and the cherry on top of this tasty little cake is 'The Skin Of My Yellow Country Teeth' which is, dare I suggest it, perfect.
