When an album starts with a song titled “This World Is a Dangerous Place”, it’s hard to know whether that’s a dire warning or a mere observation. In the case of Ben Glover’s Atlantic, it’s a bit of both. The tune goes on to sketch out details of life that are not so thoroughly drawn as to block either interpretation or interpolation. The listener can still inject herself into the specifically vague scene, whether as participant or witness, and come out the other side all the better for it.
