  1. A Small, Good Thing begins on a Saturday afternoon in an unnamed American city. Ann Weiss, a young mother, drives to the shopping center and orders a chocolate cake for her son Scotty's eighth birthday, which will be on Monday. The baker is a taciturn man, and Ann does not take to him. He promises the cake will be ready on Monday morning.
  2. Slim Westerns ' tracks all blend into one another over the course of 50 minutes, and while the basic sound of the album is easily summed up by that first song, it reduces the enjoyment of the disc not a jot; as late-night music, it's downright perfect, with everything from dramatic string parts to soft chimes adding to the album's quiet grandeur.
