If there was one word I could use to describe Never Get Back, it would be tender. Rumbling out the gates with a Black Keys-esque single, the release twists to reveal unspoken desires, then nears catharsis by the end. His vocals are deep like Justin Vernon’s, where some moments even sound like outtakes from For Emma. A steel guitar slides in at pivotal moments on tracks like “Lay It On the Line” and the title track as well, establishing a folk rock energy that blossoms into something truly heartfelt.
