Album Review

Recorded in 2005 and subsequently released in Europe and Canada of that year, Chris Stills' sophomore album took an unexpectedly tumultuous path to its eventual appearance in the U.S. nearly three years after it was recorded. The track list was also changed for the disc's stateside bow. The follow-up to his 1998 debut successfully widens the distance between his somewhat derivative initial offering as he stakes out more unique, personal territory apart from the folk-rock of his previous set. That has been replaced with an introspective and appealing pop/soul mélange which not only distances him from his famous father Stephen, but is unique in its own right. Credit goes in part to producer Hod David (Maxwell) who assists with the instrumentation and finds a comfortable space between R&B and singer/songwriter pop.

When Chris was a child, his mother taught him how to play the piano, and though he also played drums, it wasn't until Chris was 12 that he picked up the guitar. On the road with Crosby, Stills & Nash one day, one of the band's guitar techs put a spare guitar in the young Stills' hands and --...
