Earnest is a good word for this album. He's trying harder than Phil Collins for sure.

A more earnest album than their debut, this one's punctuated by the title track ode-to-deceased-father. "nobody's perfect", "seeing is believing" and fine ballads "blame" and "don't" also ground the album in solemn song-craft, while the meandering last 2 tracks deflate what could've been a stronger album.
