Compression cd cover

Sheehan, Billy

Compression

Compression is sort of a modern rock album with strong roots in blues and jazz. Thereís a little Kingís X and of course some Mr. Big, but it also has a pretty unique feel in a lot of ways. While the song structuring is relatively simple, and even the melodies themselves seem a bit basic, there is always something interesting going on musically. There are just layers and layers of detail and of course the playing is superb. Billy vocals are very laid back and relaxed. He isnít great but heís more than capable. With a career spanning over twenty years Billy is one of the most respected musicians around and this cd shows why. --Scott
