Balls-y songwriting - intelligent and bold - David Dondero's Shooting At The Sun With A Water Gun... is a folk-country masterpiece. Roots-y in songwriting style and approach, folk-ish in the storytelling flow of things, but completely edgy in the lyrical department, dealing with topics of divorce, lonely hearts, and getting back on your feet.
Dondero's shaking, ready-to-break at any minute voice, and heart-wrenching tales, coupled with his one moment faint and the next moment tumbling guitar playing makes this acoustic-based record a must have for fans of so many genres. Its mass appeal will surely find it in many fans CD players for quite some time. I'll give it an A. 15
