    Vol. 3 is at its best when Smith is at his boldest.

    While it would be easy to lose oneself behind a wall of genre tropes in a project like this, Smith's easy breezy, man-out-of-time persona stays front and centre on each of these 15 tracks.

    This is the final group of recordings Smith plans to release from the 100 Records project, and it's just as strong as any of the others.
  4. When viewed on its own, Vol. 3 is a pleasant, though fundamentally flawed, ending to Smith’s musical journey.
