Happy New Year, folks. Thanks to Stephen Deusner for including Poor Moon among his “Most Underrated Albums of 2011” list on Salon.com. Says he:

Poor Moon represents a personal, very expansive view of America and Americana music, alternately recalling Dylan, Hank Williams and any back-porch pickup band, yet the superlatively breezy country-rock vibe conceals bleak implications about morality, fatherhood, and country. Taylor sees a darkness, and to his considerable credit, he never flinches.”


Thanks too to It’s Time to Play B-Sides for ranking Poor Moon as the top record of 2011.
