Wow! What a great album. Featuring 13 songs sung with a rare passion and delivery, this is terrific stuff. Hugely melodic, complex, yet simple at the same time, this album is one of those that rewards repeated listening. Musically,this album covers a lot of ground, even some vaudeville type stuff and waltzes. Eclectic is the word. Great lyrics, too. There is even a cover of one of his dad’s songs One Man Guy, which is simply ace. So, in summary, don’t hesitate, this is terrific stuff. If you like music that stirs the senses, this is for you!
