This CD is the aural equivalent of summertime morning dew. It’s delicate, pretty and over before you know it. Foregoing the cynicism that one would expect from an outfit called Clem Snide, there is in its place an unrelenting sweetness that would certainly cause sugar shock if not for its obvious earnestness. This is a timeless, romantic record that should be filed in between Willie Nelson’s Stardust and kd lang’s Invincible Summer. From the quiet, beautiful opening of “Forever Now & Then” to the bittersweet “Every Moment,” the only darkness in these tracks is the shadow of the knowledge that all good things must pass. (P.O.
