"The Independent Songwriters' Online Magazine says of "Tough Love": "This path to the blues gets off on the classic foot of, "Use Me". This song has been done by so many guitarists but it sounds the best when the writer of the song, Chris Michie, gets to strut his stuff all over the production. "Shaky House" Even with the repetitive lyrical structure, there's no denying that this tune rocks with the best of them. It's all about feel and this has got it! "A Bone To Pick" A decent guitar player will let the natural resonance of the instrument sing the song. Chris lets the chords breathe on their own and doesn't bother to squish the notes on top of one another. The guy knows how to play,that's for sure. "Evil Employer" funkified sensuality. "Gimpy" retro-60's flavor with a somewhat subdued edge. "Don't Wanna Go" Ain't nuttin' like a sax to set that sultry kind of mood. Everything from Kennedy, Nixon, Lennon and Saigon......it's all in there and ready for your listening pleasure. "Burnin' Down The Wind" hard rockin' satisfaction. "Sweet Disposition" there's danger in the air. "The Method" the drums really cut through the mix and give this one a powerful presence. Impressive drum work and exciting musical directions that bounce around playfully. "The Terminal Dog" the B. B King and Johnnie Johnson kind-of-ditty that just makes you have to get up and dance. Another awesome display of Chris' guitar mastery. "Anita Shodda" made for full decibel audiences. Tight, reverbed harmonies weave in and out of the odd backdrop. IN SUMMARY: Chris Michie is a strong, solid player with a knack for writing a clean song. No fluff or fill. This is 100% blues/rock played straight and sweet."
