"This is like two distinct half albums. The great songs are worth the price and time, but the run of the mill, American Idol style pop stuff is totally dull. The lead-off song, Dreaming has magnificent guitar riffs and is full of driving energy. Darling Be Home Soon is a great cover of the Lovin Spoonful's hit, complete with 60's style guitars, but it doesn't sound dated. When You Dance gets the mood of late night AOR radio from the 70's with the cover of the Neil Young song.
The Soul Side Of Your Mind & Lately make me appreciate the skip button on my remote. 7 of the 11 songs are excellent. If you know the music of Christy McWilson, add her style to the mix of artists listed in the previous review. Grab this thing if it's still bargain priced. You'll play most of it over & over."
