I've listened to this album 3 times since its release yesterday, and I am mezmorised by the beauty, the power, and the crashing blues and jazz styles on offer. Tom Waits comparisions have already been mentioned, but Sean's voice fits the bill! There's class and classic written all over the songs. I can't get enough of this. In fact, I can't get enough of Sean's last three albums - all with the blues/jazz vibe of Mr Tom Waits.
