The silky smooth-ness of them carrying you from one to the other, as you hang on the edge of your seat and absorb every late note, not wanting to miss anything. This is tender pop-folk at its best, the feeling of sitting there playing a guitar while you think nobody else is listening ever present in every song. I'll give it an A-.
