REVIEW:
By Yours Truly
This is a nice, laid back, jazzy, late at night kind of album and well worth a listen when you not in the mood for some Motely Crue or something else along those lines. The content of this one is considerably different from his first solo album but Mr. Roden seems to be able to handle about anything vocally you can throw at him. Give it listen....it comes with a money back guarantee!
