Michael Knott, "Fluid"
This is my favorite and most-played MK album. "Life of David" runs a very close second. Thematic, lush, hard...it fits all the categories for someone like me who is a literary shoegazing rocker. Knott looks at the world with eyes more open than perhaps any would like to see. I feel like I'm reading a story by Colm Toibin or Nelson Algren when I listen to this recording. Raw, sometimes in-eloquent, yet eloquent even in its in-eloquence Never awkward, always true in tone and sentiment. And it rocks hard!
