Another collection of all original music penned by Cox himself, an underlying theme is woven throughout the lyrics of many of the songs dealing with "stuff". Apart from that Cox moves seamlessly from singing about a mischievous woman's stained wedding dress to a man forced to spend his first holiday season alone; then from haunting imagery of relatives who've passed on to even more haunting imagery of a man singing to his ex-wife from his own casket (sounds terribly sad, but it's actually quite funny).
Fans of Cox's last CD- Song Stylings- will be glad to know that "That Old Feeling" could have just as easily been named "Airways Motel Part 2", and don't lift the laser from the CD until you hear the trailer song, which is actually the title track- "Stuff"- and sounds like a mix between Johnny Cash music and Roger Miller lyrics.
All in all a great CD that makes you think, laugh, and maybe even shed a tear- highly reccomended if you like traditional or alt country.
