Lanky

Inner Onwriter

Imposter Records


The Wayne, N.J., singer/songwriter plays in a free-wheelin' acoustic rock style that has a lot in common with Freedy Johnston, but lacks Johnston's more resonant and personal lyrics. There's really nothing wrong with this CD except that the songs don't stand out as particularly interesting or engaging. Lanky too often takes the road most taken instead of the one that veers just off to the side. The line from ballad "Anybody" is all too appropriate: "I wish I was black and white, not gray." Methinks you could do for a little color.
