Reseña de álbum

Michael J. Sheehy is a clever fellow. The first song on the morose crooner's sophomore solo release also doubles as the title of his debut full-length. The sparse and haunting segue tune, "Sweet Blue Gene," is the perfect bridge between the companion pieces. Basically, Ill Gotten Gains is the expected sequel — another solid batch of lyric-oriented vignettes concerning sin, love, detachment, and pain.
