A pleasing example of soft singer/songwriter folk-rock from the early '70s, Aztec Two Step is a consistent effort from the duo of Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman that might appeal to fans of James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkel, and Seals & Crofts. Sometimes their pretensions get the better of them (as on "The Persecution & Restoration of Dean Moriarty [On the Road]"), but overall, the album is quite enjoyable. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
