The urgent, driving guitars in "Caffeine" are the highlight here; the track is bursting with enough energy to light up a Starbucks joing. However, McKay is fairly consistent in writing one memorable song after another. "Torch", with its rumbling beat, is a fiery rave-up that explodes from the speakers; it will shave your beard with its sizzling riffs. The acoustic prettiness of "Branches" reveals McKay's versatility. His talent is no one-trick pony even when it gallops with scorching intensity.
