There's a solo acoustic performance of You Can't Hurt Me Now from Beware and it's absolutely stunning. He also does a beautiful reading of The Brute Choir and a pretty cool interview. Well worth checking out

Beware is absolutely awful,the worst thing he has done by a long mile, imagine the worst bits of Lie Down In The Light (I like most of it at lot), remove any semblance of a song and then add more hokey fiddles and you'll come close.

If he's been working on this for three years then its time well wasted! A massive disappointment

This review sums it up perfectly

I know there's more than those too, because I just bought a ticket for his show in Boston on May 17th

yeah, those are just the most up to date full listing i could find

 

I kind of stumbled upon the Boston date anyway.. he should really make a formal announcement because there's no way he's selling out the 1000-seat Wilbur Theater in Boston without any kind of press release

Ok just finished my first listen. People were talking about all the new instruments and stuff he was using and really it doesn't seem all that different from previous records of his in that sense but it is very similar in the sense that on the first listen you really have no clue if it's genius or not. Maybe its just me but his records always take a while for the tunes to show themselves, but when they do oh oh how I love them.
