Ellwood is a storyteller of the "small town growing up and learning the ways of the world" variety. The album is laidback, and the music is generic but satisfying if all you are after are some new story songs. He uses a lot of similes in the manner of Butch Hancock, but without as much invention or wit. This is not a bad album, but it does not break any new ground.
