Citizen Cope - "Healing Hands"

Citizen Cope's single "Healing Hands" off his latest effort, The Rainwater LP, reminds a lot of college: it's political, idealistic, and sounds like an outdoor lawn concert permeating with reggae rhythms and a loose jammy vibe. It's also a much more polished sound than Cope's three previous efforts (compare it to the gritty "Mistaken I.D" or ethereal "Let The Drummer Kick"), but this change isn't necessarily a good or bad thing—it's simply a matter of taste. It suits him especially on the escalating skank of "Off The Ground"—perhaps the best song on the album.
