Although I haven't heard much from Winwood lately, this cd is undoubtedly one of his best. The music is deep and reflective at times. The track, ''Split Decision'' has Joe Walsh perfroming one of his best guitar solos. Other tracks such as ''Wake Me Up'' and ''Take it As It Comes'' are jazz/blues and quite profound. Great cd for communters and good for late night listening while you lay in bed. Can't lose with this one.
