Mike Melito: The Right Time

Read "The Right Time" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When the word “predictable" shows up in music reviews, it's often wrongly viewed as the kiss of death. Somewhere along the way, “defying expectations" or “charting new territory" have become the quickest way to gain recognition, but the tried-and-true shouldn't be sold short.
