All-too-brief mini album
Arguably, this isn’t a proper follow-up to 2001’s instrumental set Change Is Coming. With only six tracks clocking in at 18 minutes, it is?as the title itself indicates?merely a work-in-progress release. The good news here, though, is that Money Mark has largely returned to the quirky pop classicism of 1998’s Push The Button. “Three O’Clock” is a lovely slice of breezy Stevie Wonder soul, while “Nice 2 Me” shows that MM can do indie guitar pop as effectively as he can keyboard funk. All good stuff, but such gems deserve a full-length setting.
