It tells a rich story that sets the album off on a journey you know you want to stay on. It is impeccably produced and developed, Turk’s vocals and layers fit so smoothly together you will want can’t stop lovin’ it. The riffs, the textures get you to a place you should want to be. Great start to an amazing album.
Track 2 “Direction” is an upbeat song that features simple melodies and a great story line by Turk. It lifts you up and has a great hook to it. The elements of acoustic guitar and organ make grow on you with a hooky lead guitar. It is remorseful in a good way no sadness here, just a new way of looking at things. A great track.
Track 3 “Karma Wisdom” is probably one of my favorite tracks from this album. It starts off with a cool riff then goes into some laid back rockin’. The interesting chord selections and spot on vocals. The hook of this song will grab you and take you to a wonderful place.
Track 4 “Da Wheel” really builds a great landscape with its great lyrics and production. Turk’s vocals are spot on and the backing vocals creating such a rich presence in each phrase. It is a mellow happy song that you can chill to anywhere, whether taking a long road trip or just chillin your room. The message is great and the song is very well done.
Track 5 “Nice to Know” is an extremely honest song that really speaks directly to the listener and develops so nicely. Turk’s vocal is highlighted on this track and it is superb! It has such texture and richness.
Track 6 “Miles and Miles” is another one of my favorite tracks. It starts off with this really cool rhythm and rawness. You have to check it out for yourself, it is top notch and words are not needed you have to experience it. It will grab you and take you if you pump it up loud enough. It is such a cool gem to this really cool album.
Track 7 ” Rollin’ ” is one hot bluesy track. It has raw energy and power and is tons of fun.

Track 10 “West on Train” is a great ending to a truly great album. The lyrics like the first track tell a great story. The energy and passion make this one great for radio and would be a great first single.
