Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2010-12-14This represents page one in Steven's solo career after his departure from the Barenaked Ladies. The CD's opening track "A New Shore" was what I would have expected to be Steven declaring his independence a solo artist and would represent a big change in the sound from his BNL days, instead I found a CD with the most creativity since his "Gordon" days. Even though the songs on this disc deal with love, loss, and new beginnings, Steven presents them in the same quirky fashion that made the Barenaked Ladies such a success. This CD is pure pop candy that is able to pack a punch and leave you wanting more. Steven broadened his sound on this disc by adding Princes horn section on many of the tracks and included his friend Glen Phillips on vocals for "Over Joy". If this CD represents page one of Steven's solo career, I hope the book is long. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
