Make no mistake about Greene and Berlin took tremendous time and care to make sure every note was properly placed and each bend of his guitar string had meaning if not emotion put into it. His ability to move from one instrument to another as he has done during shows since he was too young to vote or enlist in our military, there is a distinct fingerprint on it all. It doesn't come across as giant leap into the future. The title alone would tell you that, instead it exemplifies what a great musician can do when not hastened by time, money or other motivating factors that can turn a talent sour. Greene is like a bottle of Great Champagne ready to pop and that is what he has done here. All together that pop turns out to be a pop leaning album, at least by Jackie Greene's standards. It translates into some of his most mature tracks in the live setting yet on the record you might find a softer side to the usually raw and gritty rock star who has rarely traveled so far from the path of Americana Roots.
