I wasn't too familiar with Ray Wilson's music before I recieved this album. I guess I was expecting a rock album somewhat similar to Stiltskin, but the music on this album is lighter and is actually more pop music than rock. Wilson became known while singing for the aforementioned Stiltskin and the legendary Genesis during the 90's and this is his debut solo effort. The promotional copy contains only four songs off of the album, so I can only hope that they represent the rest of the album as well.

Wilson is definitely a pro singer. His voice sounds quite a bit like Bryan Adams' as it is slightly hoarse in a soft kind of way. In addition to singing Scottish Wilson is also a multi-instrumentalist (bass, piano, harp and string instruments) and producer. Musicians who participated on the album were Wilson's brother Steve (guitar, vocals), Black Crows' bassist Andy Hess, Genesis' drummer Nir Zidkiyahu, and female singer Amanda Lyon.

The songs are mainly acoustic pop/rock with with some string orchestrations here and there. The melodies are beautiful and catchy and especially on "Goodbye Baby Blue" there's a sad touch to the song. "Along The Way" is a little more easy-going, while "Another Day" is airy end emotional. I see absolutely no reason why Wilson wouldn't succeed with this release since it is filled with quality melodic pop/rock.
