Chris Caffery “Music Man” EP Black Lotus Records 2004 --Ken Pierce
This EP for “Music Man” is a welcome addition to the CD pile. It hightlights one of the more radio friendly compositions from "Faces". He also includes 4 new tracks as well. There is a clean version of “Pisses Me Off” which by making clever use of bleeps for the cursing, makes it a humorous listen. It also makes me find things that piss me off to compare notes to Chris’ ranting and raving.
The main reason I made sure to review this EP was for its inclusion of two new Christmas tracks. Fans of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra might like that aspect right off the bat. I really enjoyed "What Child Is This" as it holds a similar power and feel to "Christmas Eve Sarajevo". Chris did a great job on it this one and it is getting serious ply in my CD Changer. The track "Christmas Is", is the more ballady track of the two , nice and pleasant. Among the remaining tracks "Amazing Grace" (from GDW) while poignant, I think would been best to be left on the main CD and given room for another track.
This is also readily available via the website and I recommend that since Chris often gives his fans some cool extras when they order online.
