Dan Wilson: “Love Without Fear” (2014)

Semisonic front man and main songwriter Dan Wilson’s creative and commercial peak may be a couple decades in the rear view at this point, but he can still turn an appealing melody and lyric phrase. Actually, his writing always seemed a bit “mature” for the grunge-influenced era of Semisonic’s peak anyway, so it fits nicely into the AOR slot which will inevitably be the market for his latest solo LP.

His too-infrequent releases always find welcome where melodic, coherent and heartfelt music is still appreciated.

Do check out the other recommendations below. Semisonic’s Great Divide is truly one of the most unjustly overlooked albums of the 1990’s.
