Not as engaging as the first record
on January 4, 2004
More like a 3.5.
This record isn't as engaging as his first record. These songs are more straight-forward compositionally and arrangement-wise and the record suffers for it. Gone is the cool ear candy and funky riffs for a more laid-back, smooth jazz approach (though still decidedly a cut above most of the stuff out, in true McComb fashion). There's some heavy balladry here that showcases his vocals nicely, but as complete songs don't "go there", and many of the recurring soul workouts don't push the unique envelope the first record did.
Not even close to being a bad record, but probably not quite worth the "rarity" price you'll likely end up paying for it.
