About Time (Landslide, 2005)

Webb Wilder

Reviewed by Robert Wooldridge

It's been nine years since the release of Webb Wilder's last studio album so the intended irony of the title of this effort is obvious. Wilder's wide range of influences is on display. The country side comes out most strongly in the tounge-in-cheek cowboy tune "Scattergun," as well as the Hank Thompson-style ballad "Old Copper Penny." There's also an effective cover of Tommy Overstreet's "If You're Looking For A Fool," delivered here with a harder edge.

Elsewhere, Wilder serves up bluesy rockabilly on "Down On The Farm," "Miss Missy From Ol' Hong Kong" and "Battle Of The Bands."

"Move It" has a surf feel, while a cover of Johnny Burnette's "Little Boy Sad" recalls the early Kinks. Wilder also shows his command of pop ballads with "You Might Be Lonely For A Reason" and "The Only One."

This collection of catchy tunes and stellar performances reveals that after nearly a decade away from the studio Webb Wilder is still in fine form. (404-239-5441)
