Pettersen's work on this, his second release, typifies the essence of the Americana format at radio. A combination of many influences, Pettersen is a strong presence as he shows off his skills. Variety seems to be the spice that keeps Pettersen interested and interesting. His songs range from the Motown-inspired "Deep Waters" to the Asbury Park, NJ vibe of the title track. One of the most interesting moments comes during "Run Away"; almost a C&W booze-soaked tune that seems to demonstrate the wilder side of Ed Pettersen, this tune grabs the listener's attention and holds on tight. Pettersen proves he's got all the right stuff.
