Wait is a haunting album of stark piano and vocals with industrial-type guitar and bass and percussion. I don't think I've heard anything quite like this combination of influences and textures. Johnson's classically trained voice belongs in theatrical productions and you hear that here. His piano is laid bare at many points and you hear its harmonics singing; it's really quite beautiful. You have to give Wait your full attention. I love it.
