Soft touches of syncopated percussion on "Shugum Boom" season the clever lyrics and vocals with a tasty tonality.

The musicianship displayed on this collection is top-notch, marked by tight and accentuated dynamics. Overall, "Crazy Man" offers some diversity in styles and is sure to please listeners of adult pop with hints of rhythm and blues.
