Listeners who enjoyed my 2007 album More Songs About Drinking and Women Who Left will find some of the same on this release, with the exception that there are lyrical and melodic hints that Bumpkin has gotten five years older since 2007.

Good Sound
The more I listen to this album, the better it gets. The best songs are The Path You're On, Gonna Be the One You've Been Treatin' Bad, and The Maze in my opinion. The Maze could be on the radio if it was longer. I would have loved one more verse.


Mix of alternative, country, and folk
Bumpkin has always been a bit of an enigma, playing by his own rules and never taking requests. His latest effort finds him in a more reflective mood focusing on atmospherics and mood. It works on songs such as Maze which plays on many emotions such as heartbreak, longing, and regret. The guitar creates a sound of early Neil Young and Pink Floyd, while other tracks like Sometimes when I get Drunk, continue the outlaw drinking tunes of his previous album; the excellent More Songs. I think the theme Bumpkin is trying to convey on this album is growing older and love that just seems out of reach. He includes a nice rendition "Shanty", a rocking tune getting on a party buzz. It fits nicely with the more serious tracks like radio single The Path You're On. Overall, this release leaves the listener wanting more but seems just enough until next time.
