Old Man Romance Review

by Richard Meyer

Patrick McGinley's songs have the same sort of feel as David Mallet's. McGinley is often looking back or around wistfully at a world he doesn't feel comfortable in. His melodies are soothing, and the tempos are moderate on this ten-song self-produced disc. The song that stands out the most is his description of tired small-town life in "Millie's Stop and Dine," a metaphor for the selling off of traditional American life.
