    Reckon is a statement that hits hard (and close to home) if you'll give it a careful listen.

    The songs never sink to the downbeat morass of its socio-economic subject matter. On the contrary his voice, somewhat like John Lennon's, is boyishly refreshing even when the music is as stark.

    With Reckon, Collett offers an unblemished view of all its troubles and travails. To his credit, this tireless troubadour puts it all in perspective.

    Even though there's a dramatic shift thematically, Collett maintains his signature sound of acoustic slow jams and the occasional up-tempo number.

    Permanently set on "saunter," these songs' clever structures are often overshadowed by their aw-shucks delivery.
  6. 80
    The folksy settings are tinted with brooding strings and tearful pedal steel, adding colour to well-turned lines.
  7. It's tender, touching and not nearly as miserable as its subject matter suggests.
