Acoustic, rough-hewn, genre-unifying folk.
None (not even the gallows-defiant "Sam Hall," its "Damn your eyes!" refrain making it a dramatic foil to the gallows-penitent "I Hung My Head").
Your old men shall dream dreams (about a Bible-quoting Queen Elizabeth II, to be specific) and write songs based on them (the title cut, about Christ's second coming).
The performance moving, the genre unification brilliant.
