Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Jeb Loy Nichols

Days Are Mighty

2008-05-19

Intimate, groovy, and softly passionate. Soulful title track is most suited for heavy rotation. But every other song should find air time, especially the harmonica driven “My Kind”, while piano punctuates the regret of “Lay Down and Cry”, similarly sorrowful “25 Years Too Late” manages to be warm. The most tender and personal may just be “Poor Little Barn”, a simple song about a worn out building. “That's Not What She Said to Me” is countryesque, and “I Need You So” revisits the catchy, soulful groove of “Days Are Mighty” (the song finishes around 2:40 but the track extends into a separate salute from Nichols).
