Review Text An almost spoken-word delivery added to a large heaping of witty lyrics could prove disaster for many, but for Danny Bakan, the plan seems to work. While it may take more than one listen to appreciate the man's style, stories of past lives and doing laundry instead of having fun speak volumes to common chores in a quirky yet humorous manner. The only miscue seems to be the commercial jingle flavor on "Dead Song." Certain additional instruments, such as the horns used on "The Rat Named Patsy Cline" give it an overly jazz hue, which doesn't bode well for Bakan's style. The absorption of various genres is a definitive asset, with high points being the waltz framework on "I Did My Laundry on Saturday Night." Bakan's banjo is also prevalent on the opening "Dance," but the organic, wholesome thread is what makes the album effective. "Fool" is a lovable but depressing tune with the best lyrics found. A solid wordsmith who has made a very credible album. ~ Jason MacNeil
