In the Face of Logic
After over two years in the making, this long anticipated CD has been worth the wait. With so much variation between songs, it's hard to lock Chuck Selfe into a genre. Somewhere between Power-Folk and Acoustic Metal, with the songs 'Another Day' and 'What Goes Around'. Then there's some mellow but thoughtful moments such as 'My Own Way' and 'Deanna'. This collection demonstrates Chuck's witty and sometimes sarcastic nature as he chronicles moments of everyday life, as well as some not-so-everyday moments.
