is back 12 years after his last new record, but It's About Time
isn't entirely new. It's mostly live with a couple new tracks, the excellent partnering with the quirky-cool rapper E-40
for "In My Ride" being the best. Day
's goofy-sexy swagger is still believable, and when playing old Time
tunes the band re-creates the perfect Prince
production fairly well. Too bad the whole show wasn't included and it's odd that the curse words are edited. Editing the vulgarities makes you wonder who Hollywood Records perceives as Day
's audience, but the label brought the swaggering joker back to the home stereo and hardcore fans should thank them for that.
