Fourth project from this acoustic pop foursome with a little touch of roots, country and bluegrass and which is an ideal accompaniment to a long hot summer (well, we can always dream, can't we?!). "How You Love" and "Who I Am" are infectious slices of radio-friendly fare. "Always Time" is strangely reminiscent of Wild Cherry's "Play That Funky Music" done on acoustics, but it would be hard to single out tracks when every cut engages the heart and the mind in such an effortless way. If you have a spare 45 minutes then spending it in the company of The Pool Boys would be little short of perfection for this is one of the best American independent releases you'll hear this or any year.
