"DAN ROTHERY: ac-ci-den-tal (Maplenationwide)"

Rothery's pleasant, unassuming attitude disguises a songwriting ambition that has blossonmed into an album marked by its diversity. His light, thin voice is supported by Jeff Long's often imaginative and comparitively heavier production and arrangements that sometimes soar ("Accidental Kisses") and sometimes are dramatic. "Can't Go Home" makes good use of its violin while "Underhanded" has some piano that might be termed florid but is still effective. A little rootsy here, a little flamenco there, hints at Rothery's range.

"Dan Rothery - Can't Go Home"

This is a big sweeping vista of a song, with clean writing, superb playing, powerful vocals and world class production.
