AllMusic Review by

The Texas indie-rocker Faris Nourallah combines the sad-eyed pop sensibility of Badfinger's Pete Ham with the incisive observation of Ray Davies. This extensive retrospective captures the singer-songwriter's lo-fi classic moments, from the simple singalong of "Problematico" and the Farfisa-laced neo-surf music of "Will We Ever Know Why?" to the goofy psychedelia of "One Who Doesn't Love You."
