The latest album from the Billy Nayer Show has the group back to a four piece, James Beaudreu and Michael Silverman taking over the guitar and bass chores. The sound is more in line with Villian, just a little more focused. Songwriting chores are shared on a few songs this time around, but it all seems to complement and enhance the band's infamous persona. McAbee goes more for subtlety, as witnessed in the reprises of BNS classics "Window" and "Apartment #5," but can still snarl out twisted gems as "ABCs," "Only I Can Save the World" and isn't afraid of some experimentation like the tape loops on "The Men of Dreams and Secrets" or the surf-like "Everyday I Dream."
