Further In contains some of the most beautiful and haunting tunes Brown has recorded. His distinctive voice, deeper and richer than ever, provides the ideal medium for his lyrics, while the musical arrangements are virtually perfect.
Further In is a rich, soulful, and very sexy album. This is Brown at his most compelling, filled with gritty romanticism, sardonic humor, bluesy melodicism and disarming honesty. The images are built on a base of blues, folk, rock, gospel, and country, played by four superb guitarists: Brown and Dean Magraw on acoustic, Bo Ramsey on electric, and Kelly Joe Phelps on slide.
