His second album, Heartbreak Yellow, is cheerful and poppy, perhaps best suited for driving through a sunny mall parking lot. While Davis’ Winter Loop is edgy as a sponge cake, it remains catchy in a condescending kinda way. Story Just Starting is my favorite off the album and is perhaps the purest exercise in song writing by Davis to date. The title track would fit as a Ben Folds B-side and showcases Davis’ vocal abilities, but most likely won’t make it out of the Starbucks lobby.
I have no doubt that a few of our members will want to stay far away from this album, yet a handful may actually enjoy it.
