- "[I]mbued with vitality and life by Langhorne's unique vocal chords, his winning way around words and a talent which suggests he's only just getting warmed up here."
This is a deluxe two-disc reissue of the Brooklyn-based bluegrass and folk revivalist Langhorne Slim's well-received 2005 album, adding five unreleased tracks to the original's 15. The preternaturally gifted songsmith plays with both heart and talent on his sleeve, with real enthusiasm (and no traces of opportunism) for the bluegrass sound. And WHEN THE SUN'S GONE DOWN might well be his best all-around collection: there's the usual flying-finger banjo and steel-string virtuosity on tracks like "In the Midnight" and "And If Its True," beautiful high-range vocal trills on "Mary," and touching ballads like "Checking Out," among many other highlights.
