    Yeah, I should have mentioned this - I have been discussing it over on the
    Lewis Taylor forums (check out and so maybe I've
    been Lewised out. I pretty much agree with your analysis of it. It's not as
    good as the first one but it's still very good, and I've been listening to
    it a lot. I think the second half of the album is better than the first -
    starting from "I'm On The Floor" onwards. His cover of "Everybody Here Wants
    You" (the original was by Jeff Buckley) is a classic. It's not a complete
    re-run of his debut in terms of the sound - the debut was kind of trip
    hoppy, but the new one is funkier and more uptempo. His bass playing ain't
    bad either.
