3 stars I got a bit contradictory impressions from this album, which has both beautiful symphonic ballads and more conventional bluesy numbers. Maybe I'm just so keen on the moody tracks, that the songs with different feelings feel here a bit alien to me. On the other hand, this union of two contrasting musical characteristics makes the band's sound quite personal, and the mixture seems unique. My own favorites of this album are the royal title track "A Salty Dog", quiet and fragile "Too Much Between Us", prophetic "Wreck of the Hesperus" and the ruminative and elegiac "Pilgrims Progress". The covers are also so distasteful that they are actually quite cool. Kellogs!
