Enthralling opener but by-and-large a tame effort for Taj.
on January 6, 1999
There is certainly nothing wrong with this album, everything is done quite well. It's just that once you've listened to Taj enough, you get to start expecting the unexpected, and this album is as straight-forward as I've heard him play. "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes" is an absolutely beautiful and highly emotional original. If you don't get shivers after listening to that one, you best pick up a new hobby. After that though, it's surprisingly simple blues. Nothing wrong with any of the tracks, but it's just not very adventurous.
