It’s understandable for Brookline native Eli “Paperboy” Reed to depart from his stylish retro soul roots after dipping into the same well over his first three albums. Now he takes a risk with a venture into slickly produced contemporary pop filled with electronic flourishes. There are some undeniable thrills (“Shoes,” “Pistol Shot”) some of the charm and quirks that make Reed such an engaging vocalist. The songs are good especially “Grown Up” and “Not Even Once”. The best track, “WooHoo,” was previously released and, though tinkered with here, it still captures the energy and attitude of Reed at his best.
