M. Craft I Can See It All Tonight

Martin Craft draws from a diverse array of sources: bossanova, instrumental hip-hop, folk rock and what is now called indie rock. And though he's obviously taken in a lot of music that's preceded him, he doesn't sound like anyone else in particular. But I Can See It All Tonight proves a frustrating listen. Its songs can't help sounding so...normal. So busy waiting for a commercial breakthrough. So diluted. So conformed to the conventions of pop radio. So, yes, Martin Craft may be huge in the near future-perhaps even the indie rock equivalent of Norah Jones-but his descent into blandness negates the potential maverick lurking under the surface.
