    Humor Risk might be another downer from this accomplished singer-songwriter, but its pulse beats strong as it bleeds.

    It's difficult to say Humor Risk is better than WIT'S END, but it is certainly its perfect counterpart.

    Humor Risk is a livelier affair and its venturesome aesthetic wanders.

    Humor may not exactly be a love record, but its road-ready ballads and attitude toward life are a bit more encouraging than--and a perfect compliment to– Wit's dark ruminations.

    That McCombs is seeking a specialized niche seems all too obvious, even though his sound flirts with being elusive.
