This CD is brimming with great songs. The great thing is I can't place this in one sphere of music as it crosses from classic rock to funk to soul to blues and often all together at the same time. I'm often reminded of Mo-Town with the rhythmic keyboards peppered throughout. JJ's great guitar work which can be whipped into a frenzy one second, then groove in awash of subtle blues the next gives an eclectic mix which is instantly accessible. Hughes voice is never stretched as he switches genre mid song, from searing rock pyrotechnics to the most soulful spoon full of honey and the funk comes from his inspired bass playing. There is nothing to criticise here, and if you're tempted this was my second of several Hughes' cd's, once you dip your toe in you will never get enough and will be searching for more. This is great place to start and I would also point you towards the 2005 release 'Soul Mover'
