Kelley Stoltz is a man thatís not afraid to make known his influences. I wouldnít go so far as to say heís riding anyoneís coattails, but song after song makes it more than apparent that bands like Pink Floyd and songwriters like John Lennon are such.
Itís your being in the simplest song, itís the melody so strong / It wonít let you forget what it is youíve done, between the brain and the blackboard every lesson / Right or wrong you know that youíre still guessing / And that shine hasnít been replaced itíll hide the lines on your face.Silly and nonsensical, the lyrics require no more thought from a listener than the most basic of song structures and instrumentation. Taking numerous cues from a simpler time in music -- the `60s, Stoltz establishes a stong, albeit not completely memorable basis, on which to build his playful songs and style.
