On Snapshots of the Universe
, former Clevelander Michael Jantz
divides his time between rash rocker and introspective singer-songwriter. Jantz (whos now based in Washington, D.C.) is at his best when the tunes on his second album reach poppy roots-rock territory, like on the swirling Better Than You. The mishmash of styles, which can be a bit off-putting on record, should work better onstage -- a more suitable setting for his creative genre swings.
