Long Line Of Leavers
Released: Oct 2000
The opening strains paint a picture of what's to come: an organic folk-rock sound that's understated and wonderfully ambitious at the same time. But it's the lyrics that really stand out. The honesty of tracks like "Mistake of My Life," "Ballad of San Francisco" and "Love Is Different" are a testament to songwriter and co-vocalist Derek Webb's lack of ability to be a people-pleaser -- and we're all the better for it.
