Track by Track Review

Human Calculator

Bluesy rock with a bit of a punk sneer, this is cool stuff. It a little on the raw side, but it’s also fun.

Wounded Bird

This is even more pure punk rock. It’s a high energy tune. The guitar solo has some of that old school rock and roll. Beyond that, though, it’s pure punk.

True Faith

There is a classic element to this number. It’s a mid-tempo rocker that’s quite effective.

Change in Latitude

A bit mellower tune, this has a lot more of a classic rocking sound than punk. It’s one of the most “different” tunes here. It’s also one of the best.

Song for You

I love the rather noisy guitar that sort of soars over this whole cut, ever present. The tune is more of a mid-tempo rocker beyond that.

Been Away Too Long

Punk, raw rock and roll and something a bit like The Stones all combine here. This is solid, but not a big change.

Rain

More of a balladic piece, this works pretty well. It grows to a more rocking number as it builds out beyond its origins. This is actually one of the most interesting cuts here. It’s one of the best, too.

It Happened on Willow Street

This starts on acoustic guitar and remains with that as the only backing for the vocals. It’s a folk meets rock kind of piece. It’s a good change, but not a great song. I think a more rocking thing would have made a better closer.
