Humor Risk reaches listeners with the same wandering feeling that Cass McCombs embodies so truthfully in every record he produces. As a follow up to Wit's End, which was released in April, Humor Risk brings with it as a hopeful sort of second coming. It has just as much traveler's grit that McCombs does so well, but with a more joyful, life loving disposition. The last track on the album, "Mariah", feels like a kiss on the cheek with its simple plucked backdrop to McCombs yearning, doubled voice comes off irresistibly sweet and tender. While opening track, "Love Thine Enemy", has the same amount of passion but with a drive of subtle, nomadic sensibilities (also felt on "The Same Thing"). With this album, McCombs has seem to have found a great sense of contentment that he can't help but to want to pass along.
