A Good Enough Day


Royal Wood
A Good Enough Day
(Dead Daisy)
This Toronto-based former child piano prodigy hasn’t squandered his natural talent or sweet tenor voice—A Good Enough Day is a pop delight, an old-fashioned train-car stocked with alternating riffs on love and heartache. Squeaky clean, but not overproduced, fans of Ron Sexsmith and Hawksley Workman—who plays drums on one track—will find plenty to grab hold of, without an annoying nip of imitation. Lovely strings on “Siren” beckon, while “Step Back” takes a fun leap to ’60s pop “do-do-do’s,” providing needed levity. Catchy as hell, “A Mirror Without” has the guts to become a classic. Musically and lyrically well-written, this album is more than good enough.
