Much more low-key than most people expected, Let Go proves that the Phelps were the smarts behind the HeadHunters. The title cut was a breezy single that recalled Buddy Holly, and elsewhere on the album, the Phelps made judicious use of Southern boogie ("Were You Really Livin'") and strings ("What Goes Around"). Not a perfect album, and not as good as the HeadHunters at their peak, but Let Go still contains some mighty nice listening.
