3, so named because it's, well, his third album as a solo artist, shines a well-deserved spotlight on Kasim Sulton, the ever-reliable sideman, operating here in an unabashedly pop pretext. Though far removed from his former day job with prog rock enthusiasts Utopia, there is more than a hint of his frequent employer Todd Rundgren throughout, particularly in a song like "Fell in Love for the Last Time," where Todd's earnest and wistful breeziness casts an unmistakable influence. It's part and parcel of a consistent whimsy that keeps the material unencumbered and carefree, be it the McCartney-esque "The Traveller," the irresistible balladry of "Clocks All Stopped" or the absolutely infectious "God of Low." Those who pay particular attention to the credits will notice an impressive supporting cast in tow, one that includes Rundgren, his colleagues from Utopia, a member or two from The Cars and Blue Oyster Cult.
