Marty's done it again! A nice production, but not so overproduced as to ruin his earthy musical charm his audience enjoys when he plays live. Some Amazon reviewers of his Christmas CD complained of it being too raw, whereas some complained of THE AMERICAN (his major label debut) too overproduced and polished. Even those naysayers may find some common ground with this release, as the music touches upon the many genres he's played, yet maintaining a cohesive album "flow". A remarkable feat, for sure. A little tribute to Tom Waits (Keep It Simple, the closing track) breaks some new musical ground, without sounding to "experimental" (read-"out there"). The fans have been hungry for a new studio CD from Marty for some years, and this should not disappoint, and maybe even expand the fan base a bit! BUY THIS NOW!
