A real shorty here... I discovered the fact when I was listening to Shawn McDonald's CD "Ripen" that I really enjoy, that we had not written anything about it on the page, and because it is the best he has done I felt compelled to write a few lines. Following its debut in 2004 he released this CD in 2006 and Shawn took his sound to a more acoustic but still modern singer songwriter pop. Howie Day on prozak with hints of Jack Johnson and Edwin McCain. What can go wrong? Not much. This is a really good record.
