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.
