www.steelnotesmagazine.com Steel Notes Magazine Track 16 - Don’t Forget The Christ in Christmas by Bob Shaw - Get ready for a little Christmas hoedown. The thing is I dig this song. The music is good, but the lyrics and the way they are sung really make me smile. I laughed out loud when the singer simulated smacking a kid who wants presents. I can’t really decide if the entire song is tongue in cheek or not, but I do like it! Track 17 - Sleigh Ride (Spoken Comedy Sketch) by Bob Shaw - This is Bob riffing. Bob, you are a funny guy! I have not laughed like this since I heard Peter Wolf tell the world he wanted a pizza win ‘No anchovies please!’ So folks, what is the bottom line? The bottom line is that this is a very enjoyable album! The tracks range from Punk Rock to simply beautiful vocals, from Rap to spoken word humor. There is something for almost everyone on this album. The Grouch | Sweden Steel Notes Magazine www.steelnotesmagazine.com 105
