Well I haven't got around to hearing My Casette Player yet but I got Good News lately and it's a very good, solid album. However, 'Taken By A Stranger' is a complete anomoly. Besides that, it really is very acoustic and laidback, not to mention very samey. My advice would be to search a few songs on YouTube and if you like them to dive right in. I'd recommend 'Push Forward' and 'A Good Day', perhaps 'Maybe' as well.
Basically if you like acoustic stuff you should like Good News but don't think it's going to be Taken By A Stranger X12 because it could not be further from it.
