The Master Craftsman of vintage pop is back with his first full length album. This album features thirteen tracks of pop perfection with slick and warm production that only Dave Rahn can achieve. The patience and poise that Jesse Smith and Rahn learned as Carbonas members is perfectly executed in pure pop form on his Self Titled debut album. What sets the songwriting on this album apart from other recent pop records is its ability to intelligently combine structure and simplicity. Simplicity is thematic on this record from the songwriting down to Rahn’s exquisitely balanced recording and even extends itself into the record’s artwork. If you even kind of liked the "I Don't Wanna Know" single, this record is essential for you.

This is really good Power-Pop along the lines of the Nice Boys. I think I read that some of these guys were/are in the Carbonas? This is a good record full of some bright tunes and good vocals. They did commit the sin of a 2 panel insert with no lyrics? What the F**k? I will forgive them this time.
