AllMusic Review by

A ten-track side of Nashville blues that manages to blur the borderline into lounge jazz, late '50s coffeehouse, and more -- it's interesting to detect hints of such luminaries as Tennessee Ernie Ford, Otis Redding (though Mecyssne's voice doesn't compare), Elvis Costello, and Randy Newman (who seems likely to be the biggest influence of any in that list.) Given the pleasant, well-played music, and intriguing lyrics, it seems like Mecyssne could use a few voice lessons to bring him up to par with the material.
