“Sometimes accidental discoveries are the best, and Sinnett’s newfound talent adds an unexpected dimension to songs like the rhythmic scat-meets soul Gotta Roll, a surefire hit. On the opening Bump in the Road Sinnett talk-sings sparsely on a tune that could be happily set in the 1970s, but with a contemporary quip, ‘it’s just a bump in the road, yo.’ Singing all the parts on Slights and Slings, Sinnett delivers a tune that will have audiences joining in word for word on the chorus. Burnin’ Berman cooks at a high tempo and off-beat time signature, and yet Sinnett’s vocals are right on the money – perhaps his most impressive delivery, though his Sade-like approach to Higher Calling is pretty smooth.
“Sinnett and company also shine bright on the album’s instrumental tracks. Where guest keyboardist Justin Kauflin provides some nice fingerwork as a compliment to Rakes’ melodic guitar lines on Thinkin’ ‘Bout Where Ya Been,’ the group injects a blurring of prog rock, blues and gospel to After the Storm for a nice change of pace.”
