On Can’t Go Back, Payson Lewis is able to make an emotionally intense appeal to the past. The brooding, intricate instrumentation of the single provides a perfect counter-point for Lewis’ voice. With just a tinge of distortion dripping off of Payson’s vox, the resulting effort is cohesive as all get out. Can’t Go Back has so much going on during its run time that listeners will have to play the song multiple times before hearing each and every nuance that has been inserted within. A solid fit for rock and alternative rotation, with just enough pop influence to keep listeners happy.
