Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

David Wilcox

Airstream

2008-03-17

Yes, an Airstream. The songs were conceived and recorded in one. This is like the 10th or 12th album from this prolific writer, and it is barebones: just guitar and voice on the whole thing, that’s it. This allows ample opportunity for Wilcox to display his accomplished guitar work and smooth baritone vocal. And though he can turn a phrase pretty well, you get enough of his deep-life-lyrics after a while to border on being preached to. Not that that’s bad, necessarily, and especially when taken individually there is some good stuff here. There are: Love ballads (tracks 2, 6 and 11) Political/Religious songs that require you pay attention (tracks 4, 7, 8, and 9) Songs about life (the rest) 1, 3, 7, and 8 sat the best with me. - Pete Lewandoski
