I’ve been following Dutchboy since I heard of Nova so I was pleased to know that Dutchboy was dropping an album.
Highlight songs on the album are “West Ting”, “If You Knew”, “Times”, “If You Knew” and “Another Interlude”.
“If You Knew” is the second song on the album and is a good follow up to the “Cookin Up”. “If You Knew” begins to tone down the album. “If You Knew” is a conversation expressing his personal struggle. If you only knew is a great song because of mellow mood it brings.
“West Ting” is the single for the album When I’m Not Around. Cool beat and sound, song is aimed toward woman to make them feel special. Great sound and is catchy, for those that haven’t heard this song it is a must.

“Times” is a recollection of good times in Dutchboy’s life. The way Dutchboy highlights his life makes you feel the pain he is expressing and sharing with the listener.
I enjoy listening to Dutchboy. I heard him a hand full of times thanks to Nova and was looking forward to what he was cooking up on When I’m Not Around. I was not disappointed, Dutchboy did a great job with this album and I am looking forward to more. I rate this album 7 out of 10, but I am sure once you listen you will have a better rating than I do.
