Overview

This longtime native son of Las Vegas mixes pinches of Gram Parsons and the early-'70s twang swagger of the Rolling Stones on some songs such as "Conversation" and "California Blues, Pt. 1." But it's the pop sensibilities on tunes like "Built to Last" and "Paper Route" that makes the album work cohesively, particularly the lovely blues-rock solo closing the song which gives it a needed extra layer of skin. Led by a well-rounded and capable supporting cast, the singer/songwriter has most of the raw, cutting-room floor feeling to some of the songs, although "Nothing" comes off slightly overproduced and a bit lightweight. The airtight rock on "Lost You" resembles Tom Petty at his zenith, as does the yearning to leave described on "White Trash Town." "Downtown," the longest of the baker's dozen tracks, is another high point, with more of a cutting edge to it. It appears that the album's middle is the slight weak point, with a great start and finish.
