Most of Jeff Wood's debut is of the '70s sensitive singer/songwriter fare, although a couple of cuts stand out and help to establish him as a viable country artist. The opening track "You Call That a Mountain," and is the strongest track in this collection and could almost sell the album on its own merit. Wood's style and delivery are worthwhile, and he cowrites five of the ten songs here. Also noteworthy is the Don Schlitz/Vince Gill contribution "You Just Get One," and Wood's uptempo "Long Way from OK." A mostly mellow set, heavy with pop-ish power ballads that should appeal to fans of the Dave Loggins-meets-John Berry school of country-pop.
