One Man’s Crazy

***
Bespectacled and bereted newcomer Mark McGuinn crashed the Top 10 in 2001 with “Mrs. Steven Rudy,” sporting a quirky sound as unique as his look—then promptly vanished into oblivion when his record label suddenly went belly-up. Five long years later, his second album sounds like a natural continuation of the ebullient country-pop on his self-titled debut. Social observations, common-sense wisdom and clever turns of phrase sit side-by-side with catchy choruses on this sophomore effort, which will hopefully allow this talented North Carolina native to pick up where he left off at last.
