Blues Traveler frontman John Popper steps out solo on this freewheeling outing. Bluesier and deeper than BT's pop-crafted take on folk-rock, ZYGOTE unveils Popper's songwriting skills without skimping on the ever-essential dose of lengthy solos. "Miserable Bastard" sets the tone for the album with a well-hewn, boogie-band groove that perfectly buoys Popper's scowling, Delta-blues growl. And although precious ballads like "Once You Wake Up," "Growing in Dirt," and "Tip the Domino" barely make the grade as gussied up '70s soft-rock -- let alone the kind of Southern soul Popper seems to be striving for -- the sunny, Little Feat-style flow of "Love for Free" and the double-time driving tune "Evil at My Door" balance his bluesman aspirations and free-wheelin' soul.
