Robb has the technique down, just not the passion. That's what's made him a busy session man for years. But on his fifth album, he just can't break from his proficiency. He's fluid in blues picking, acoustic classical, and even country rambles. But he just can't infuse any of it with emotion. He brings nothing to these songs -- all self-penned -- except a workmanlike attitude. Which may be enough for guitar heads out there, but it leaves everybody else cold.
