Just in time for a solid year end finish this Ohio rocker brings everything to the table – the lyricism, the groove and the tempo.
- Say It to My Face:
Nice catchy little tune that manages to pack a punch in its more sublime moments when the tone shifts with subtlety and grace.
- You Can’t Take My Soul:
Another ditty that lingers and leaves you wanting for more as the crooner steals the show with his beautiful voice and mesmerizing chords.
- Got a Reputation
Some Steve Earle and Tom Waits crossover vibes here. Decent track tucked nicely in the middle of the album.
- She Said
This one is heartfelt and sincere and I could feel the man. Rock straight up from the soul served hot and honest.
This one is optimistic and became an instant earworm. Nice touch here rocker man. The Ohio spirit is infused every second of this track and you can feel it.
- How Do You Sleep at Night
A weak track for me. Didn’t really fit in with the rest of the album thematically I felt but nevertheless it works here and there.
- Broken Wing
The penultimate section begins with this song which is dry and at times runs the risk of being boring
- Ordinary Man
Kinda wished they had edited these songs out. Felt they dragged the album
- Lost Child
This one is the penultimate song and it brings back some of the energy from the first half. Full marks for saving the album from a dry spell.
- One Last Goodbye
The closer is heartbreaking and is a solid finish to a very well polished and thoughtful rock album. Worth a listen.
