It's the Good Crazy

It's the Good Crazy

by Matt White



The highlights on It's the Good Crazy, the second album from pop
ock tunesmith Matt White, are the ballads, which are intricately arranged by a number of producers who moonlight as solo songwriters. The guys keep things warm and tuneful throughout, recording everything onto analog tape and boosting White's piano-and-vocals approach with strings, background vocals, and other radio-ready accessories. "Taking on Water" finds him duetting with up-and-coming songbird Emma Lasry while acoustic guitars strum quietly beneath them, and "When I Fall" gives him a chance to show off his falsetto, with a chorus that hints at Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work."
