Keith Alan Mitchell - This Clumsy World

.
Keith Alan Mitchell may not be the strongest vocalist - he tends to drift off key now and again. However, there's one song on this folk-y 12-song collection, "Swaying," which makes this album above average. It's a song about two lovers that may love the booze as much as they care for each other. "We keep on swaying," Mitchell sings, "out of time with the world." It might not be a song about two of our greatest citizens, but it's sure a darn good drinking song.

"Diamond Blues" also shines, due almost exclusively to its two-stepping country beat. It's the sort of rhythmic workout that makes you wish Mitchell would have played around with the sonic a little more during This Clumsy World.

For the most part, Mitchell keeps the instrumental backing fairly stripped down. This approach is exemplified by "You Just Disappear," which roles to little more than a strummed acoustic guitar, some acoustic bass and some tambourine percussion. "Crossed That Line" includes pretty mandolin, which once again makes the listener which there was just little bit more color in this overall picture.
