Jared Caraway Hard-rocking riffs face off with Becker's whispered verses in this showcase of the band's raw talent. While the album is a nice introduction, the live show is always worthwhile. You owe it to yourself to catch this duo in person. Favorite track: When Hammer Hits Stone.

The real revelation here comes on the other three songs, however, where RTB2 workshops its way through 40 years of classic rock experimentation, exploring the sonic possibilities of its home studio to re-record a couple old tunes and offer up the breezy, Thin Lizzy-ish "Letters to a Young Danny Kennedy." "Beta Crush (Fleshed)" is an aurally interesting revision of the Both of It tune (it's spooky vibe enhanced by slowly shaken maraca, droning organ and bells) but "Yer Fool's Suite II," another re-worked track, just might be the band's prettiest recording to date.
