The long-running trio of Phillips, Craig & Dean have come along way since their 1991 debut. Their sedate, plaintive sound evolved along the way to include the insistent pull of mid-tempo rock. Their latest album aims to bridge the two sides of their musical worlds, reining in the group's more fist-pumping ways while adding some spice to their quieter ballads.
