Paul Baribeauís self-titled debut remains one of my most pleasant blind purchases. I simply saw it in the Plan-It-X catalogue when making an order, and decided to risk my five dollars on the disc. I had not read anything about Baribeau at that point, nor had I heard one of his tracks. So, when my package arrived (along with an expired lottery ticket, a playing card and a personal note thanking me for putting my trust in the Gainesville postal system), I was pretty surprised at what I heard. The music was raw and passionate. I listened to a guy sing about what seemed to be every embarrassing feeling or fact about himself that he could remember. He did it with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and an oft-cracking voice. And though it should have worn thin quickly, it didnít. The disc still manages to get fairly frequent playtime from me.
