Iron and Wine's most ambitious and accomplished recording to date, and also the most satisfying. While many of US learned of Iron and Wine by way of the tender and spare rendering of the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" on the GARDEN STATE soundtrack, those who dug deeper discovered a classic American tunesmith with a precocious musical signature. This whole album breathes, It's seductive rhythms percolate and unulate. THE SHEPHERD'S DOG is informed by a sensuality that brings a dreamscape to life.
