The Full Sentence

An unabashedly funky album that uses the pleading and supple voice of Shawn Smith (Brad, Satchel) atop layers of keyboards to strut its slow to midtempo retro vibe. "The Full Sentence" combines drum machines with live drums and percussion, heavy guitar riffs (courtesy of some of Seattle's finest) and analog synth sounds of every color to anchor this remarkably consistent collection of songs. Often reminiscent of Prince's early work, this album is at is best when Smith is on target, as he is on the title track, when you really believe that he "can't wait any more." "The Full Sentence" succeeds on its own terms as a gospel and rock inflected throwback to the funk of yesteryear.
