Snapshots of the Universe
Snapshots of the Universe is Cleveland native Michael Jantz’s second album of well-produced, varied songs. The opener “Love is But an Ocean” and the upbeat pop-rock of “Better Than You” display Jantz’s knack for penning memorable melodies and there is plenty of diversity on offer with the laid-back folk of “Sierra” and his cover of the traditional “Goodnight Irene.”
The writing isn’t always consistent —“Mama’s Comin’ Home” and “Turn On The Radio” are cases in point– but on the excellent “You” and the ska-influenced “Livin’ On Sunshine,” Jantz demonstrates his promise and potential.
