Superstitious Mind is a hard-rocking track that ties together the work of Guns N’ Roses with a more current and contemporary (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood) country sound. My Perfect World keeps with a strong instrumentation and showcases Lim’s eclectic set of influences. With more than a passing nod to sixties psychedelic rock and nineties grunge, My Perfect World has the hooks necessary to garner a substantial amount of replay. Broken Promise Blues is one of the hardest-rocking tracks on this CD, allowing Lim to come forth with some alluring unity of sludge-metal (Danzig, Corrosion of Conformity) and seventies rock (38 Special, The Outlaws). Where the band continues to set out on a tremendous groove, it is Lim’s vocals that push the track to an entirely different realm.
Please, Please Don’t Go slows things down considerably, with Lim taking a Mott the Hoople approach. Considerable use of an electric organ gives listeners a large dose of seventies rock, while the theatrics of Lim’s voice will appease fans of Alice Cooper. Let Go is another memorable effort on this self-titled release. This is due to the cohesion that is palpable during the effort; no matter whether Lim’s vocals, the guitars, or drums are kicking into high gear, the rest of act coheres and creates a unitary effort.

Lim’s self-titled LP is an example of an album that continually impresses, with each of the album’s cuts catchier than the last. Lim is able to hit it out of the park wit this one.
