I miss the good Shakey

My wife and I love Shakey Graves and have seen him in concert three times. Unfortunately we’re both very disappointed in this album. His originality, soul, grit and unique sound is nowhere to be found on this album. “Can’t wake up” is an appropriate name for this album - the only reason I’d listen to it is if I were trying to bore myself to sleep. Sorry Shakey. Not sure what happened to you on this album.

He woke

Don't let the title of the album fool you, Shakey is more awake than ever on this new album. His style has shifted from his earlier days, but the brilliant lyrics and songcraft are still there. This album is so dense that I have a new favorite song every time I listen. The album has everything from songs with fanciful wordplay ('Aibohphobia'), to punk-rock infused folk-ballads ('Cops and Robbers', 'Kids These Days'). There are dreamy psychedlic romps ('Mansion Door', 'Counting Sheep') and songs with an almost anthem-like gravitas in 'Excuses' and 'Big Bad Wolf'. To those lamenting Shakey's change in direction, I say give these a few more listens and tell me they are not stuck in your head for days. Keep it up, Alejandro.

The wait is over- NEW SHAKEY!

Been a fan since the early days- nice to hear these new sounds - you can hear the maturity of the music in the 2 singles that dropped - can’t wait to hear the rest of the album! -JTA
