Be­ing a bass play­ing vo­cal­ist it’s fair to say that this al­bum from Will Lee is far from be­ing gui­tar heavy. That said, the qual­ity of gui­tar that does sneak in sen­sa­tional. In fact it’s al­most worth get­ting for Will and Billy Gib­bons’ ren­di­tion of Get Out Of My Life Woman alone, where both sing lead and Billy plays some of his dirt­i­est gui­tar ever. Hugh McCracken plays fine acous­tic on Miss Un­der­stand­ing and there’s a great pedal steel solo from Larry Camp­bell. Steve Lukather throws trem flips, speed runs and slides into his solo on Na­tives and Chuck Loeb weaves his six-string magic on Smile and al­most steals Fooled Him. But make no mis­take this is very much Lee’s al­bum and it’s won­der­fully mu­si­cal with first rate songs and fan­tas­tic pro­duc­tion. It crosses mu­si­cal gen­res yet re­tains a co­he­sive and lush qual­ity through­out. This is one of those rare al­bums that makes you smile from start to fin­ish and gets bet­ter with ev­ery play.
