Label: Emblem / Atlantic
Much about Rob Thomas' second solo LP is in the lead single, "Her Diamonds," a song about mid-life ennui with a looping electronic drum rhythm and a strident chorus. The record's other singles -- "Give Me the Meltdown" and "Real World '09" -- use a familiar blueprint, and they all are streamlined Top 40 jumbo jets. As a whole, the cradlesong is brighter, more polished and a bit more varied in orchestration than Thomas' solo debut. A thudding drum pulses behind the record's most dynamic tune, the bold "Fire on the Mountain," where the singer's writing is the most imagistic.
