"You don't see many singer/songwriters who, besides guitar, play trumpet. That's just one of the differences that make David Myles stand out on his second release. This is one of the most accomplished discs this critic has heard so far this year. It does everything well. He has an engaging voice, the songs are good, the players are all top flight, the horn section soulful, and the instrumentation and arrangements are imaginative and cleverly put together. If he keeps up like he does here, and avoids the self-destruction trap, this young man is going to the top. You heard it here first: he is as good as Paul Simon or some other rootsy musical prodigy. Really. A terrific second disc. Penguin Eggs
