Album Review

Having made his mark in America and moved back home to Ireland, Luka Bloom attempted to incorporate some of the spirit of the country where he spent four years concentrating on Irish folk-rock, covering LL Cool J's "I Need Love," and the Elvis Presley hit "Can't Help Falling in Love."

While Bloom's second album expanded somewhat on his first record's stylistic range and maintained its urgency, it lacked the debut's exuberance, as Bloom was getting more serious when what he needed to do was to get more substantive.
