What a turn for Webb! I miss the Cons, but he shines in a tastefully low key way on this album. At times the fact that this is a new project is audible to my ears, but I think this has legs. Hope to hear more.
Provider isn't necessarily going to settle old scores. Its a notable release, though, both as a new work by a talented singer-songwriter and as one of what one can only hope will be several satisfying postscripts in the narrative of a great band.
