We gave it a C+

The only guitarist who’s a member of both the E Street Band and Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band, Lofgren continues a long line of solo work featuring delicate string-plucking, pleasantly hoarse crooning, and sincere but trite songwriting (”You are the bomb/You make it calm”?). When the best tune is a (lovely, deeply understood) cover of the Everly Brothers’ ”All I Have to Do Is Dream,” you should consider outside writers more often.
