This album is even better than his post-record deal, highly-promoted (and very good!) hit Twentysomething. The album is jazzier, groovier and most of all I much prefer his voice. He sings the songs in a more simple way, he gives less effect to his intonation, and for me the result is far better - fresher, cleaner, and less apt to grate, as it sometimes does on his follow-up. His piano-playing is assured and inventive, his treatment of some old standards is innovative and will definitely get your toes tapping, and his backing band support him very well indeed.
