Although he's sired a dozen albums under the name of SMOG, he has laid that name to rest. Boasting the propulsive, glittering and classically pretty arrangements of Neil Michael Hagerty, this 2006 album manages to bypass the trends of the modern day while shunning retro entrapments. With a mix of gospel backing vocals by Deani Pugh-Flemmings of the Olivet Baptist Church, the incediary guitar work of Pete Denton, and the honeyed violins of Elizabeth Warren, the music on this album touches on gospel, tough pop and American Light Opera.
