Good Mac and Cheese!A solid effort from Marshall Crenshaw. Gone are the bright and cheery pop melodies that marked the start of Marshall’s early cherished career.  These songs sound as if lived in, confident and comfortable but not complacent. The tunes here represent a natural artistic progression due to the inevitable mellowing of the mind where the world gets portrayed through more nuanced lyrics and a more pensive tone to the music. “Will We Ever” is an example of this, where the singer comes to the realization that maybe the best of life has passed him by and the weeping guitar brings that point home. 9/11 seems to hang over “Where Home Used to Be,” with its mournful regretful qualities. “Few Thousand Days Ago”  is a wonderful gentle road song, with a sublime subtle melody that caresses the lyrics like a cozy couch.  The Prince song, ‘Take Me With U’ fits in well with the other songs here and does not feel like a stunt cover.  A notable achievement in my book.  There are two instrumental that show off Crenshaw’s much undervalued acumen on the guitar, “Despite the Sun’ and “AKA-A Big Heavy Dog.” Over twenty years into his career at the time of this release, Marshall showed that he still had a few crafty tricks in his bag.  While much more subdued from his last sterling studio effort, 1991’s energetic, “Life’s Too Short”, “What’s in the Bag” is like good mac and cheese, tasty and filling.
