I have no idea how this disc came to be in my possession. I don't remember buying it. Mysterious origins aside, this is a very good singer/songwriter record. Ben Jelen is a bit like a darker-tinged Ben Kweller. This record has a lot of interesting textures, but is backed by some strong songwriting. It was a pleasant surprise and might get another spin sometime soon. Oh, and I feel I should mention that women seem to love this album. My wife took it to work once and all her graphic design co-workers all fell in love with it and wanted more.
