Solid

I just bought Fake Plastic Trees before I posted this review. I was almost going to purchase Willin' but stopped short when I heard the singer mispronouce Tonapah. It's the only misstep in this set that I've heard so far, which is why I've witheld a star. In any event, Downeaster Alexa is awe-inspiring--the boys here make a version vastly superior to Billy Joel's original!! (What does a man from Hicksville, Nassau County--where they wrote the book on cookie-cutter American suburbia--know of the sea & fishermen???) All in all, a must for hardcore folkies.
