Former Sea Level saxophonist Randall Bramblett comes to the plate on this one with a stripped-down sound heavy on the guitars, leaving his customary sax and keyboard work on the sidelines for a more organic sound than his previous two outings. The main themes are loss and redemption with tunes ("My World," "See Through Me," "Shining Birmingham") that lyrically mirror the dark side of Bramblett's psyche. All is not dark and somber, however, as "Angel Dressed In Red" and "Soul Killer" rock as hard as anything here. While his earlier solo albums sported a much shinier production both in the playing and the sound, this one finds his music presented in a far more stripped-down and basic format, and it's all the more direct and honest as a result.
