Very talented Rock artist Timothy B Schmit has released him latest album titled Playin It Cool and Wow! It’s really a good one.
Playin It Cool will grab your attention right out of the gate with Playin’ It Cool and doesn’t let go until the very last note of the very last song Give Me The Money, which by the way is another great track.
Playin It Cool is a nicely varied, mix of 9 tracks that are very well written songs by this clearly talented artist. Most of the songs display a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Clearly drawing from what I can only imagine are him own real life experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions like love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.
If you’re a Timothy B Schmit fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don’t even have to be a fan of Schmit, or even Rock to know is good. It’s just good music. Period.
While this entire CD is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 – So Much In Love, track 7 – Take A Good Look Around You, and track 9 – Give Me The Money.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Playin’ It Cool. Outstanding!
