Wolf rocks here too: “I Don’t Wanna Know,” with its big ringing guitars and wailing harmonica, is a betrayal song to dance to. “Watch Her Move” is a snaky, nocturnal old-school R&B tune that shakes in modern parlance. “There’s Still Time” is the album’s hinge piece. Slowly beginning with acoustic and electric guitars, it gradually soars, adding a string section and a gospel-ized backing chorus.
