Tooth & Nail is an album on which Billy does what he does best – creating a tension between the struggle to change the world and the struggle to maintain relationships with those who we love the most. Returning to the rootsy sound of the Mermaid Avenue sessions and recorded in just five days in the basement of legendary producer Joe Henry’s house in South Pasadena, Billy’s voice has never sounded better. The overall effect is an album that Mojo magazine described as, “…his best yet”.
The vinyl version of this album has been pressed on to finest quality 180gram black vinyl, mined from the fabled vinyl mines in Patagonia where the local tribes folk make a tidy living guiding fresh faced record executives into the bowels of the Black Magic Mountain and…alright, alright too much detail. The lyrics adorn the inner sleeve in a visually pleasant array of words and pictures. Err…oh yes and there’s a download card so you can get the album in digital format to play on your portable gramophone player thing. All in all, everyone’s a winner. Result.
