 TrouserPress.com :: Son Volt
For Son Volt, Farrar recovered drummer Mike Heidorn, who had left Uncle Tupelo after the third album, and enlisted brothers Jim (bass) and Dave (guitar, fiddle, banjo, etc.) Boquist, who had previously worked with Joe Henry.
It was hard not to notice that he and Tweedy both shifted to more tricked-up, deconstructed regions in 2000 — the latter in recording Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and Farrar with his solo debut, Sebastopol, which received none of that lauded record's fanfare.
The album was finished by the summer of 2000, but wasn't released until the fall of 2001, as Farrar looked for a label.

 The Eternal Sonship of Christ
This teaching destroys the internal relationships within the Trinity, because if the Son was not eternally begotten by the Father then neither did the Spirit eternally proceed from the Father through the Son.
Under both analogies, whether as the Son of God or the Word of God, the second person of the Trinity is depicted as eternally proceeding from the first person of the Trinity.
For the Father and the Son were not generated from some preexisting source, so that they might be accounted as brothers.

Molina's Son is relatively straightforward in its lyrical approach (love, life, loss), but her musicality is complex, confusing, and often wondrous.
Because of its uniformity of sounds, moods, and tempos, "Son" features few standout moments, although album closer "Hay que ver si voy," with its interlocking melodic lines, is particularly mesmerizing.
Like the visuals of the gorgeous CD cover this album comes in, "Son" is intricately textured together, making a varied but cohesive whole.

 * Dusted Reviews - Juana Molina *
In concert, she’ll say that she’s turning the tables after hearing English-language music throughout her youth, but it’s also a canny strategy to focus the listener’s attention upon the attractive timbres and melodies that the Argentinean singer and multi-instrumentalist has crafted for this marvelous record.
Son is Molina’s third album for Domino, the third that she made at home and mostly on her own, and her best to date; the songs are simultaneously more richly detailed and more succinct than those on Segundo and Tres Cosas.
Her first record, released a decade ago in Argentina, is reputedly a fairly conventional product of conventional pop-craft methodology; get the chick in to strum her guitar and sing her songs, then wrap it up in flavor-of-the-month studio-hack backing.
