Wilkins inhabits the same Texas-centric universe as Pat Greene (who adds harmony on "Velvet Sky"), Cory Morrow, and others. It's a scene that purposely shucks off the radio-homogenizing influences of Nashville, keeping its twang firmly in place, even as it reaches out for folk and rock influences. Wilkins' second studio album (a CD of live performances recorded at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe and a disc of demo recordings appear to be floating around, as well) finds him continuing to explore his role as a balladeering observer, wedding gentle fiddle-and-guitar driven backings to a folkie's introspection. ¶ The major changes in his life -- predominantly marriage and fatherhood -- provide the focal point for Wilkins' new songs. He essays on-going realizations of adulthood ("Poetry"), exuberant love ("Spacewalk"), the transcendent beauty of home ("Walnut Street"), and the memory of an unexpected snowfall. His miniature contemplations bring together the bits and pieces that make up Life, and his clear-eyed view of personal circumstance continues to impress. ¶ Track #12, unlisted on the tray card, is "Field of Blue." ¶ 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
