“While there is no denying his chops, his compositional skills on some tracks here deserve special recognition. “Living the Good Life” is an uptempo rocker with a melody that’s instantly hummable. Guitar drives the song and Martin’s journey through modulations are gorgeous, calling to mind Larry Carlton’s more melodic pieces. The song also lets Martin show off his harmonic talents as he glides through a chord solo. The title cut mixes metalesque riffing with a loud, melodic solo. It also shows another talent of Mike’s, the layering of guitars. He likes to put down tracks that sound great together. And it wraps with shredding that’ll make you run for the hills. “The Trouser Trout” is a funky pop tune with more of that layered guitar sound that he has obviously perfected. His ballad work shows considerable influence from some of the finest popsters from the past on cuts like “Lavender” and “Salute.””
