Ron Sexsmith – Long Player Late Bloomer (Warner Music Canada)

Was producer Bob Rock the one to finally coax an end-to-end masterpiece out of Canadian songwriting treasure Ron Sexsmith? There is little question that this is Sexsmith’s most upbeat record in years and could finally be the “one” to bring him mainstream exposure. Tracks like Get In Line and Believe It When I See It probably hold the best chances of adult pop success while other songs such as Heavenly and Miracles are “classic” Sexsmith, which in the context of this record, is perfectly alright.
