I hesitated before buying, simply because I thought this might be a watered down version of the Sexsmith's talents. I was wrong - totally. All his creative way with a melody is displayed to the max and I now consider this one of my favourite Ron Sexsmith albums. That is, it shares equal billing with, among others, Time Being. There's a hint of the Everly Bros, but, strangely, not in a particularly derivitive way. It gauls me slightly to read in the album notes that these songs were "left over" from a previous album because there is no hint that they are in any way second division. For any person appreciative of strong, melodically adventurous songwriting the whole Sexsmith canon - this album included - should be a must.
