CD Review: Ben Taylor

Listening (Sun Pedal Recordings/ILG)

by

Ben Taylor's parents are Carly Simon and James Taylor, so his singer-songwriter chops come naturally. On his fourth album he channels his father in both style and sound: He borrows James' easy flow on songs like "Worlds Are Made of Paper" and the title track, while "Oh Brother" lifts a line from Dad's "You've Got a Friend." There's nothing as timeless as "Fire and Rain" on Listening, but it's pleasant, effortless folk-pop.
