“Rott’n” Dan Shinnan proves both a powerhouse vocalist and prolific collaborator on this rock-solid Edmonton-based outfit’s current offering.  There are no holes to be found in their set list, all co-penned by Shinnan and band members and drenched in savvy of the genres they embrace.  There’s a big taste of Bobby Womack in the horn-laced leadoff track, “Players Blues”, and Shinnan’s high-voltage delivery preps the listener for what’s to come on successive tracks.  Standouts among these include the soul-rocker “Foolish Mind”,  an “after hours” ballad, “Hard To Tell You”, and a high-octane, rave-up shuffle “Easy To See”.
