My favorite tune: Weightless

Two years after his debut album ‘Within and Without’, Ernest Greene adds just too few new layers into his musical pieces.  The reggae flavor in ‘It All Feels Right’ is certainly a breath of fresh air, while other songs remain essentially sound like a not too bad B-side from his previous L.P., and this time Greene also a bit overdo his laid-back bossanovaesque vocal concept, reducing it to mumbles in ‘All I Know.’ Washed Out almost ironically becoming a washout within its own paracosm.

My Rating: 6/10
