This CD is ****ing awesome, there is no way around it. Usually when a member of a band takes personal time, their solo stuff usually sucks. This however, is incredible. Sounds somewhat like a release from Radiohead, but not quite. Its hard to put a finger on it. You can tell he worked on this album himself. It's got some of the crazy beats that are remiscent of Kid A or Idioteque, but with soft acoustic-ish singing. If you like Radiohead, get this album.
