    With the exception of a few standout tracks (ie. Roll on Oblivion) this album took a few listens for me to get into. Now I can't stop listening to it. This is an excellent album that shows a lot of progression from his last.

  1. High-pitched coos gatecrash the song's chorus like they've just been kicked out of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil," and a harmonized keyboard solo injects a bit of the Steve Miller Band into an otherwise minimalist, Southern-styled slow jam. Such unexpected moves seem to be a new thing for Collett, and they combine to make this his strongest solo effort yet.
  2. There’s good understated playing throughout, strong songwriting and a casual, immediate feel that comes from recording an entire album in six days.
  3. This mannered, understated virtuosity permeates Collett's music, just like it did the Band's.
