Mellow gentleness served up quite acceptably by a promising newcomer. There are certainly flaws, but nothing that can't be remedied with experience's helping hand. The lyrics without exception cover well-trodden paths and could use some new thoughts and different angles, though Steve does express the reality of his testimony quite passionately. The interplay of instruments becomes a bit garbled in places and it's really quite a mess in its worst moments. Having said all that though, I'm aware of a spark waiting to fire up at some point. The voice should become stronger with time, but is already quite expressive and pleasing. Yes, I reckon one of these days...
