Arturo Maldonado This album is awesome, I only wish there was more of it! Each song feels like such a heavy hitter and they're sung with so much emotion. The last song is really lighthearted way to end the album. It almost seems out of place, but it somehow works so well. Favorite track: You're Not A Woman At All.
