“Change” leads this album, with jazzy undertones and easy listening; it greets you at the door and welcomes you in. “Helpless” follows suit and I find myself feeling as though a long time friend has led me to the couch and started the conversation. Lead singer Jason Differ has a melodic yet captivating voice, leading fluctuations in tempo and tone, that not only makes you stop and listen, but keep you there.
“It’s You I’ve been Waiting For” is both fun and uplifting, giving you hope for better things to come. And come they do. Once again there is a subtle shift in the music and it seems to develop a bit of an island feel with soft percussion accents in “Wake Up.” This leads into the final track, “What You Wanted” which floats you along the remainder of the journey, this conversation that begs you to consider love and all the possibilities, begs you not to turn your back on what is right in front of you. Change is, without a doubt an extremely well thought out compilation of music and lyrics which is timeless.
