Hagen’s rich, Southern-fried voice has lots of muscle and growl in reserve, and it smolders just right on “Dying Alone,” where he and guest vocalist Marja Hansen haggle out a hopeless relationship. We really like the song’s guitar tone and the organ, which lends a Gregg Allman vibe. Hagen stays in the heavy, mid-tempo range on “Wake Up,” which has lots of loud/soft dynamic shifts in his voice. The song’s organ excursion again adds an indispensible element to the mix. Next, we’re completely surprised by this artist’s unique cover of Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks’ “Dreams.” Starting with a sombre piano supported by a lofty, otherworldly drone, Hagen’s take on the classic (though maybe too long) is inspired.
