Ok, I just listened to this cd today and well, i'm disappointed, upset, and a little p*ssed off. I'm not saying this is a bad cd, but I dont think its for me. The first thing that really p*ssed me off was the constant treble hiss. There's a microphone, channel, port, whatever thats hissing throughout the entire cd. Not just one song, but all of them. At first I thought it was the snare wires vibrating in a bad way, but it wasnt. I then thought it might be the brush work from the drummer, but that wasnt it either. I'm not sure what it is, but it goes away when that mic (whatever) is turned off. It happens on every song. There will be the hiss and then on one part of the song, it quits and then starts again. I cant listen to the cd without concentrating on that.
My second issue is, well I cant lie, it bores me to death. The songs are all done well and Pauls sounds good, but its just not for me. Slipping my wife a roofie is about as romantic as I get, but if I were to ever be in the mood, I have tons of easy jazz and crooner stuff thats better than this. I'm kind of mad that I even spent money on this especially when I was kind of excited to hear it. Oh well, i'm not saying this CD is bad, but i'm going to quietly slip this on the shelf right beside Macca 2 and the Firemen projects. Unless there's a serious review of the songs, I doubt i'll ever listen to it again.
