Album Notes
- Frank Gutch, Jr., No Depression Magazine
God knows what in music makes us respond but Laterzo has me looking out windows of trains and sitting around mountain campfires and even isolating myself in whatever landscape is available. He makes me wonder because this world is full of wonder and he brings a tear to my eye while I am driving the backroads, trying to figure out how I got here. He makes me love AM radio once again (listen to “Subaru” and if you lived during that golden era, you will understand) and he rocks with just enough energy to make me want to head to the beach, head back, in the convertible I never had.

I know it's my mood but I've been in it for the last few days after hearing this album. I hear Gene Clark and I know it's unfair to compare, especially in a review, but Laterzo has something within that captures my ear. Oh, it's not copying, what Laterzo does. It is very much his own. But I hear the soul of Johnny Rivers (yes, he has soul) and the smooth delivery of J.D. Souther. And it is all Chris Laterzo, plain and simple.

Laterzo released four albums before this one. I don't know how, but I missed every damn one of them. I don't know how that happens, as hard as I search, but it will make for an adventure, backtracking.

I almost hate wrapping up this review. Stacks of CDs and files are begging to be heard but all I want to do right now is lay back and listen to Chris Laterzo. I think it might have the same effect on you. We can all use a little break. Start with this.
