"Up and coming singer/songwriter Pressley evokes the solid soul-pop balladry of yore with this impressive indie entry.
His music is like Lionel Richie meets Christopher Cross in a rowboat on a still lake. 6 of the 8 songs like the title track (f/ Kim Waters on sax), "He Could Never Love You" and the sorrowful "I''m Lonely" are as heart-onsleeve as love songs come. But just to show he''s not hopelessly whipped, Byrd also kicks the soulful "Show Me" and "Outta Here," a funky, drums-driven kiss-off."
