Mile by Mile (Smith Entertainment)

Though Honeybrowne has emerged as a formidable force since 2005's Something to Believe In, the local quartet's fifth studio disc, Mile by Mile, unfortunately keeps safely to the middle of the road. Fred Andrews still wrings songs like the title track with genuine emotion, but aside from the playful Roger Miller bounce of "Bowling Green," Honeybrowne is largely covering the same well-worn ground.
