Keaton Henson's Dear (2010) is one of the most intimate experiences I've had with music recently. It sounds at times like a more humble Bright Eyes, without any of the bells & whistles. The fingerstyle guitar in Charon reminds of Elliott Smith's Angeles, but the album is a lot less produced.

What makes Dear special is Henson's bare and beautiful fragile voice, it's the fact that every song on the album is well written, heartfelt and honest.
