The post-it on this says “Toad the Wet Sprocket meets Elton John meets Tonic meets Sting,” and I’ve had to say it’s pretty accurate, in a happy way. Those whose hides were riled by those references should steer WAY CLEAR of this, but it’s otherwise an excellent collection of lyrics and music that will certainly appeal to fans of… you know. Madonia has a powerful voice that seems somewhat out of place with the thoughtful and well-orchestrated backgrounds (has he tried his hand at metal?), but his creative ideas seem stifled by those traditional arrangements. Something to watch… Soft Monkey Music, 1007 SW 18th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
