Disarmingly similar to Yost's One Starry Night record from 1999, Road Less Traveled is an album of deceptively simple, contemplative house music for late nights and chill-out rooms. Hammond organ, jazz guitar, and waves of atmospheric synth move the title track, while on "Move Your Mind," Yost toys with the vocals of Holly Morris, echoing her plaintive "dream on" over and over again. Elsewhere, he makes attempts -- mostly successful -- to vary the sound, pushing the tempo up for "Love Not Love" and dropping it down on "In Walked Mr. Cool."
