The 12-song effort is theatrical and ambitious. Workman’s signature eclecticism shines brightly on songs like “1000 Miles of Atmosphere,” a nine-and-a-half-minute prog epic that’s stuffed with syncopated rhythms, star-dazzled synth twinkles and unpredictable sonic shifts. Although not every song is quite that wildly sprawling, Workman never goes on autopilot and proves that even an old cheetah can learn new tricks. The style range from the falsetto-flecked soul of “Teenage Cats” to the piano-driven space-rock anthem “We’re Not Broken Yet,” to the salt-of-the-earth folk of “It’s Really Starting to Snow” and the cabaret psych of “Small Town Dracula.”
