James Toth suffers the burden of being an evocative troubadour in an era when no one's buying truths any more. In his journey from Vanishing Voice to solo Wand with a brief and tragic slide through his given name; he's encountered more brilliance and bullshit than most souls can handle. Now back with the moniker that made his stake, he's eked out a quiet release on CD-r (Mad Monk) and LP (Blackest Rainbow) that recaptures the wounded storyteller in full Wooden Wand regalia. Wither Thou Goest, Cretin burns with the cinder of truth that's marked all of Toth's releases and should act as a nice primer for another proper full-length (Death Seat) scheduled soon on Young God. Though that may be a bit fuller sounding, this one is pure voice and guitar. Just the sound of a man and his hopes, his demons and his truth laid out on tape.
