This CD reminds me a little of a hospital stay. A bit depressing but ultimately hopeful, the CD tells you that one day you'll recover.

Barenaked Ladies keyboardist Kevin Hearn recorded this CD after his bout with leukaemia and it's referenced in the album title, H-Wing. But there's no hospital-like sterility in this CD. The piano, guitars and bass are simply arranged but create a lush soundscape. The only criticism is Hearn's thin voice, but only on the first few tracks.
