For Epic Soundtracks, lo-fi has been more a matter of economics than aesthetics. But his third solo album has a more varied, muscular sound, the better to put across this collection of well-crafted songs that cross Phil Spector’s dynamics with blue-eyed soul. If his voice is not always up to the task, it only adds to the Change My Life‘s fannish, knockabout charm. B+
