On the initial note emanating from this album, Cole Guerra recalls the catalog of singer/songwriters like Tom Waits and Randy Newman by offering a lovely, tender, piano-fuelled track entitled "Away Awhile." While the singer also brings to mind Eddie Vedder performing a solo, string-laced concert, the starkness of the tune is its selling point, particularly thanks to the cello of Alan Toda-Ambaras. It's as if Guerra has urbanized the Americana sound with great results. Michael Stipe is another obvious reference point on the softer, safer, slightly off-kilter but radio-friendly "Holed Up," which recalls a cross between Jakob Dylan and Daniel Powter. Mellow and at times reflective, the musician delivers a fine and light pop-jazz feel on "Latent," with Anna Gleichauf on harmony. The song changes gears quickly into a Floyd-ian, deliberate prog rock feel and simply shines before veering back to its original arrangement. Unfortunately, the ambling, autumnal nature to "Gina" doesn't work that well, resembling an Ed Harcourt outtake or B-side in some respects. Thankfully he nails the ensuing roots rock gem entitled "Hocus Pocus," which works some magic in the mode of Michael Penn. "Lucky One" has a sullen, melancholic air to it as Guerra tends to rock out a bit more than usual during the chorus. An acquired taste is the pop-meets-barroom saloon hue to "Off Off-Broadway," but the singer is able to pull it off thanks in large part to the Dixieland brass that colors the bridge so lovely. Guerra is able to pull these songs off thanks to some pop smarts and styles that, while overused at times, can succeed by striking the right chord as he does on the somber, Counting Crows-light nature of "Left Coast Hopes." The true closer is a lovely, tearjerker sort of tune with Guerra alone at piano for "Downtown," which makes you yearn for dreary, rainy Sunday afternoons.
