Who Dunnit comments | Reviewer: shelly tumbleson | 4/13/2008

By most people's accounting, Who Dunnit isn't a great song. It's obtuse, obscure, disjointed and it could be argued that it's a novelty song. But the effectiveness of this song isn't in the song itself. The cacophony created by the off time syncopation of Phil's drums and Tony's keyboard work creates a feeling of slightly organized chaos. Granted, it's not chaotic like Pat Metheny's Zero Tolerance for Silence and it's not Ornate Coleman, but it is arrhythmic at best.

The strength in this song is once it comes crashing down at the end, you're greeted by a song that could not be any more different than Who Dunnit. Lonely Man On the Corner is a sad, tear rendering piece that was crafted with all the compassion and brilliance that Tony, Mike and Phil have ever made. Unlike Driving the Last Spike, Lonely Man On the Corner is about the plight of the individual (as opposed to a group), but is no less profound and simultaneously both melancholy in content and uplifting in its beauty.
