    Not a bad album but not what I had expected, unfortunately in mostly an unappealing way. There's maybe three or so tracks that I enjoyed and the "Hollywood Forever ..." track was the one stand out I'd add to my regular playlist. I kept wanting more of that but instead got plenty of pretty standard country influenced tracks.

    If your up for that then I think this'll float your boat,

  1. Though he dumbs up his songwriting half the time by fearing fun literally as regards forward motion, don't give up.

    Fear Fun leaves his previous work in the dust.

    [An] inspired brew of, indeed, both fear and fun.
