Adventures In Your Own Backyard, the third full-length effort from Patrick Watson, was recorded in Montreal after a grueling five-year run that saw Patrick and his band (bassist Mishka Stein bass, guitarist Simon Angell and drummer Robbie Kuster) tour the world in support of two critically-acclaimed and successful albums, including the Polaris Music Prize-winning Close To Paradise. The album's title is a nod to both Watson's attempt to make a more 'personal, humble' record - and to the fact that it was recorded almost entirely in his apartment in Montreal. The result is an album that is still ripe with the touchstones one has come to expect from Patrick Watson and his collaborators, but permeated with a greater sense of patience, and confidence.

Le disque conserve une certaine ambiance du début à la fin, sans toutefois que les chansons soient toujours du pareil au même.
Je recommande cet album sans hésitation!
Secret City Records claims on their website: "We like vinyl." But if that were true, they would have used a more professional company to press this record; one that would have made an effort to produce a quality product, rather than the third-rate first-run pressing I purchased.
The disc has never tracked correctly, and it had a scratch right out of the shrink-wrap!
Granted, I haven't seen/heard any others, so I can't judge the quality control. Perhaps there were better ones. Perhaps they're all this bad. At least I could download the .wav files. They sound much better than the LP, and I do love the music.
Another great offering from Patrick Watson, but a shameful waste of vinyl.
