'Thin Black Duke'

Eugene Robinson: "Oxbow's entire oeuvre is as challenging of a thing as I have ever been involved in, and whose "success" was never guaranteed as it was about war with self, others, fate, circumstance and shorn of a moral framework, making it strange to use, but a certain kind of evil. Tough to spend 5 minutes like this. Even tougher to do so for 25 years. Post-Thin Black Duke… the expectation should be for a kinder and more beautiful Oxbow. Because? Because we've earned it. Maybe.
You may not enjoy Thin Black Duke, but it'll be one of the best records you've heard.
