In his debut album The Middle of The World, Evan Goodberry incorporates mellow, almost Simon and Garfunkel-ish vocals to make this one of the better albums I have listened to in a long time. Soothing vocals and trance-like melodies- what more could you want in an excellent acoustic/folk/indie record?

Evan Goodberry has a sound like no other, as his relaxing music is very simple yet very detailed. The majority of the songs feature just Evan and his guitar- and because it’s not too crowded with instruments, this is a very unique album. The vocals are soft, and the guitar parts sing the melody. It is all you could ever want in an acoustic album.

Although the vocals are excellently written, that cannot change the fact that the songs start to sound the same- I felt myself becoming bored with the music about half way through the album. For the most part, the minimalist songs are enough for you to casually enjoy, but in some cases there is not enough going on during the song to hold you to it.

Other than that flaw, I really enjoyed The Middle of The World. It’s been a while since someone put out a good solo acoustic album, and this is one of the most relaxing CDs I have heard in a long time. If you enjoy good folk-style acoustic music, then check out Evan Goodberry’s The Middle of The World.
