oh wow, this cd is one of the best i've heard in a while. my friend described it as "what john mayer would sound like if he had soul" the guitar playing is really good and the man's voice is one of the best i've heard in a while. the lyrics stay above the mainstream for the majority of the album. very strong debut[?] for this singer hailed by one critic as "the bill withers of this generation" go cop that right now!
