Review:
Singer-songwriter Hans Mayer's message songs about community, diversity, and green power are hardly subtle, but they go down nice and easy with Mayer's mellow vocals, infectious melodies and deft, folk-flavored guitar and mandolin accompaniment. A few highlights: "Camp Abilities" emphasizing "can" over "can't" ("A loss of sight is not a loss of vision"), "Fields of Windmills" ("watch 'em go, round and round") and "The Other Side," a toe-tapping, critter-happy twist on why the chicken crossed the road.
