Overview

Catch the Wind: Songs of a Generation is a quite peculiar follow-up to Damien Leith's proper debut album, 2007's Where We Land, and unfortunately it goes a long way towards erasing the praise he received for that album, one of the better debuts by a winner of a television singing contest. Leith -- who was born in 1976 -- sings as if he has no personal connection to the songs, and given most of the songs here, that's not a surprise. The portentous subtitle leads one to expect a set of generational anthems, but aside from a pair of protest tunes each by Bob Dylan and Donovan (all of them delivered in a heavy-handed, subtlety-free fashion), the 18-track set is far more heavily tilted in favor of soft rock singer/songwriter types like Cat Stevens, Bread, John Denver, Peter Frampton, and Jim Croce. [The CD was also released with a bonus track.]
