Buddha Hotel -- last year's debut album from Glen Stace -- painted the Saskatoon rocker as Canada's answer to Steve Earle. His sophomore effort finds a more mature performer beginning to come into his own. Road To Damascus leans to the dark side. The country influence is still there, but it's the kind of western feel that evokes a stench of death in the air after a high noon shoot- out. Before you can peg him as the brooding, demonic type pictured on the cover, he closes with the rousing take-life-as-it-comes rocker "Whatever Goes 'Round."
