Jeb Loy Nichols: Just What Time It Is

uncredited writer, No Depression, 28 February 2001

JEB LOY NICHOLS'S first release since his acclaimed 1997 disc Lovers Knot is so laid-back, it should come packaged in a hammock. And while there's nothing inherently wrong with being laid-back, the problem creeps in when "laid-back" turns into plain old dull. That happens quite a few times on Just What Time It Is, and the result is a CD that misses more than it hits.

Total word count of piece: 228
