John Linnell's debut solo release was an EP for the Hello CD Of The Month Club, and the first releases from his ongoing project to do a song for every state (sort of a small-scale Sufjan Stevens, though John Linnell was first!). Some of these were remixed for the State Songs album, but "Nevada" was completely re-written for the album (and I prefer this version). "Pennsylvania" was also re-recorded, but it was just lengthened a bit. Mostly, the lyrics have nothing to do with the states, and just mention them. (This would become even looser on the full album, as some of the tracks were instrumentals.) This is almost a must-have, at least if you feel like spending way too much money on something that's readily available in a slightly different and expanded version for much, much less. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
