    The sophomore album of Smith Westerns is yet another reason to keep an eye on this musical act. 'Idol', '3 AM Spiritual', 'Varsity', and 'White Oath' number among some of the most creative things I've ever heard. It may not be as groundbreaking as 'Dye it Blonde' was, but it is certainly worth a close listen.

    Soft Will, a polished, richly layered trip, even if it never fully arrives.

    Soft Will is certainly pleasant enough (which shouldn’t really be what you’re striving for with a rock album), and I’m sure is being hailed by indie taste makers everywhere who like their rock on the sterile side.

    It's a lovely place that Soft Will fashions here, but it sounds hesitant about pulling you in, perhaps because its creators are secretly concerned that you'll realize you aren't really going anywhere.
