new Clapton

I heard the new Clapton disc today (self-titled).  It sounds like a classic Sunday morning record...the music "looks backwards" (Clapton's words)'s a collection of mellow (for the most part), tin-pan alley influenced songs, with some blues.  Some songs wouldn't sound out of place in any hotel lounge, they border on easy-listening, and he covers some standards here too.  Lots of piano.  Vocals are smooth too...he's definitely mellowing.  I put this next to Van Morrison's classic "Poetic Champions Compose" for perfect rainy Sunday fall/winter morning music.
