Mhai Muang's third album and its full of fine tunes, quality backing and musicianship and great vocals. Track 1, "Keb ruk wai tee plai roong" is a great case in point, it starts off with some relaxed humming and builds into a bright little tune with some nice whistle and relaxed laid back vocals giving it a great contemporary feel. Maybe a better song though is "Luem gun laew gar" which has a very traditional start before building up into a "big" song.
One criticism of this album though would be that it is a bit one-paced. "Gasalong glub baan" for example is a good tune with laid back vocals with a yearning edge to them but its much like quite a few of the other tracks on the album. But i suppose if your template is a good quality one why deviate from it? "Nitarn bai mai" for example is a restrained beautiful tune with good musicianship but lets the vocals shine. An enjoyable laid back and relaxed ride.
