Richard Shindell works impressive alchemy with the plainest, most primal American pop melodies. Stark and unsentimental, Shindell's songs unfold with the unadorned grandeur of hymns... the music glows, and when the words illuminate complexly shaded situations - an unspecifically troubled family man waiting alone in his house for an oncoming monster storm, for example - the effect can be shattering.
