JOEY CAPE: Let Me Know When You Give Up: CD

The mostly solo-acoustic project of the singer of Lagwagon, Let Me Know When You Give Up features a number of tracks of Cape with a full backing band. The production quality is top notch, as you’d expect from anything on Fat Wreck. Cape is solid as a songwriter and a musician. I was never much of a Lagwagon fan, but they at least had an intensity to their music that I could get behind. Cape, as a solo artist, is mellower, and while that might appeal to die-hard fans of Lagwagon and of Cape’s already extensive solo career, this felt lackluster. –Paul J.
