In his day job as the Promise Hero's guitarist, Daniel Eli Weiss plays Saves the Day-style pop-punk. On his solo debut, he sounds like Elliott Smith. In fact, casual Smith fans may even mistake "Never Woulda Guessed" and "Don't Invite the Devil" for songs actually penned by the late singer-songwriter. But Weiss is so good at playing the sensitive guy, it's easy to get lost in The Dipsomaniac. Weiss amps it up too, in tracks like "Today I Saw You" and "Follow the Leader," both of which are sprinkled with bits of '60s psych-rock. The album charts a young musician's maturation as he combs through classics and finds new ways to become part of it all.
