Jon Strider - Fresh tracks (2010)

I really do like Jon Strider´s voice, I thought his previous album "White wings" was pretty good and also think the new album "Fresh tracks" has a warm sound.
But we get just too much of everything on this album that feels like a compilation, the songs have been written over a long time period between 1994 up to now but they´re all new recorded.
Jon surely love to show his love for all kind of genres like blues, country, folk, westcoast and roots rock.
This is the problem with this album, I think it open very strong with the California pop of "Apple pie song" and then continues rather fine with "You need me", "The bridge of redemption" and "Magnolia tree".
But half through the album, Jon goes genre diving and it´s a shame since the first half was promising.
