This is John and Tad (bass) from BT along with Marcus Bleecker (drums) and DJ Logic (turntables), and a number of the songs sound like Blues Traveler with more of a beat, groove and rhythm to it. If you're averse to rock with turntables and the occasional programmed beat (e.g.: "Trigger"), I'll say this: it's done pretty well and tastefully. It's obvious but not overpowering to the point that the song suffers. It's also not rap-metal, so no worries there.
It also doesn't always work, either, but I enjoyed the CD as a whole. Some songs are laid back, some are jammy, some are fast-paced and some sound like sped-up BT. A few songs will garner many repeated listens (such as "Louisiana Sky", "Fire in her kiss" and "Morning Light"), though some will not. Truth be told, if you like Blues Traveler, you'll find something to like (Popper's lyrics, his harpistry, his vocals; the occasional keys; Tad) on this CD. Whether it's your cup of tea is up to whether or not you're interested in taking a chance on an entertaining yet decidedly different shade of John Popper.
