After 'Where the humans eat' i had high hopes and expectations for the second album 'If the Ocean Gets Rough' and wasnt disappointed. The Rustic quality of the first album was lost as an obviously cleaner more sophisticated recording technique was used and at first i was a disappointed at the softer slower sound. Second time round with the album i became to accept that it wasn't the same as the first and that in many ways it had more depth and was musically a higher standard. The change is there but no one wants to hear exactly the same sound over and over again. Willy provides an equally brilliant follow up, which should cater to the same audiance and maybe a wider one.

I've had this album on rotation for a week and I'm hooked. It's another album of deceptively simple, highly personal songs, as Willy asks for support from family and friends while he tries to pin down what's important in life. 'Simple Town' is my personal favourite, the lyrics are perfect - but there really isn't a weak track on here.

"The difficult second album" that many professional reviewers often talk about...

Well this is as good as "When the Humans Eat" Willys first CD.

His voice is deeper and the production not as raw as the first but the main thing the musical abilities, writing, singing, music and song content are as good as ever,

buy without hesitation, I did, you wont be dissapointed.

only listened once or twice, but its kinda like Evan Dando's solo stuff, countryesque singer songwriter fodder with interesting lyrics. Works well as a whole album, will stand the test of time i reckon! I need to see this guy live

if you liked the first album, you will love this. the second album is always tough, especially after a successful first, but willy mason has done himself proud here.

from the opening track, every song is melodic, passionate, and very very catchy. within 2 listens of this album you will be humming/singing the songs, and will find yourself singing them all day.

i bought this album as soon as i could when it came out, and i am far from being disappointed. if you don't own this album already, then you absolutely need to!

Having stumbled by accident on "Where Humans Eat" and become totally hooked on the earthy sound and haunting voice of Willy Mason I took the plunge on the 'dreaded' second album. A good decision! After a few plays through admittedly, 'The Ocean Gets Rough' is every bit as good as his first album and will become a mainstay of my listening pleasure over many a car mile! Next job is to see him live!
