Christian McKee can best be described as a modern type of singer/songwriter. He begins in brave fashion with an opening title track which is bound to divide listener opinion. A dissection of modern life, McKee paints a vision of disaffected youth with a witty, street-wise lyric but the dated hip-hop tricks undermine these good foundations. In truth, it's not representative of the rest of the EP which is mature and less gimmicky than McKee's opening gambit suggests. 'I Will' depicts him as the wounded lover; it's an aching ballad with a subtle backing and it's easily McKee's most convincing offering. 'Writing To You Now' is based around the theme of lost love again but its guitar melody is noticeably upbeat; offering a nice contrast to the earlier self-pity. Finally, 'The Way Things Go' is a step back to the downbeat side but this time with a an acoustic backing rather than a synth wash. Although there are only four songs here, McKee suggests he can progress down several routes but - on this evidence at least - his more soulful material seems like the best option.
