Russell Baillie

The Aussie soul-rocker formerly known as Diesel has dropped the moniker for the first album of the Stateside part of his career, and come over a bit singer-songwriterly and serious.


This makes for a solid album which runs a line between the guitar and voice anthemics of Radiohead (on the title track) and U2 (Satellite), a delve towards Crowded House (on the Neil Finn co-written Burning Water) with occasional reversion to his soul-rock stylings (Dig).

It suffers from being over-produced but shows much proof of Lizotte's jack-of-all-trades talent and old fans should adjust easily.
