It is eight years since his latest album but the recipe is the same? Sophisticated and intelligent powerpop. Sean has some good guests as backup band ? names like Matt Chamberlain and Jim Keltner on drums, Jon Brion on various stuff and his former girlfriend Bijou Phillips on background vocals. This album has the same problem as his latest one ? it doesn?t grab. It is just like a fluffy cheesecake ? it?s there and it?s good while you?re eating it. But afterwards you have forgotten all about it. I must say that this album is perfectly explained by that.
