Michael Penn returns - Mr. Hollywood Jr. 1947

I know there are a few fans of his on these boards – Michael Penn’s “Mr. Hollywood Jr. 1947” just hit stores this week. I bring it up because it seems like it just dropped out of the blue – about a month or two ago, I was looking on his official site, and I couldn’t even find a mention that he had a new album on the way.

So far, I can’t say I like it as much as his previous albums. It feels a little too laid back, too meandering. That’s after 3 listens, though, so it may still grow on me. He’s appearing on Leno tonight if anyone’s interested.

I thought he was terrific on Leno. Well, maybe he was about average, but the song he did was awesome.

Really liking the new disc so far.
