Where Wauters does execute depth is lyrically. There's an underlying sense of existential wondering here, a noted change from his first record. The piano-driven "Misbehave" might only clock in at under a minute long, but the length puts focus on one of Wauters' grander ponderings: "Lately I've been thinking about what's right or wrong / I've been thinking about what it is to behave / and why do I choose wrong." Is this Wauters growing up? Hardly. But two albums in, he has a better understanding of himself.
Contrary to his debut record, which was recorded casually over one year, Who Me? was recorded in a tight, purposeful two weeks, and it's evident in the polish and punch of songs such as the groovy, Wes Anderson-score ready "I'm All Wrong."
Still, it's that childish appeal which remains most enduring and endearing. Here's hoping he doesn't lose it. (Captured Tracks)
