Aiding & Abetting
Aiding & Abetting (6/1/05) Lanky is Frank Stabile, but this hardly sounds like an eccentric one-man effort. Rather, this is pop-inflected roots stuff, perfect for AAA radio. Stabile does have a tendency to turn to the handbook when he gets stuck with a song--there are a few too many predictable moments here for me to get overly excited. But then, maybe that's what it takes to get mainstream attention. This is good, if not great, and more than listenable. - Jon Worley
