Soul is amazing.
Village Fool - you're really getting good at this songwriting thing!
Good to hear you back!

That's the way to do things properly. Let them brew and revisit them often with fresh ears.
Making anything that comes across to people will always be disconcerting due to the fact that you've spent a lot of time on them whereas they all claim to be experts based on spending a couple of minutes (or even just a second or two) of their lives on them. Listeners search for identity, creators establish their own identity in the world and get the benefit of the wisdom that this disconcerting dichotomy provides. Well done for getting it all done without assistant engineers or producers to guide it along for you (like all those supposed 'talented' famous, rich idiots have at their disposal).

Its not too hard to identify the period that influences your style and tastes!
BTW, besides some of the previously mentioned comparisons, I hear some brief hints of Golden Earing in there.
Boston Rock= "I don't know why"
Lots of guitar layers and textures. Many "influenced by" flavors, yet quite original.
Was it Worth it:
For a moment there I thought you were breaking out with some modern country. Nice romp.
Tasty and smooth groove.
I'd suggest maybe the bass could use a little tightening up and definition, and the high end ("brushed snare" maybe?) is a bit too fizzy and slightly overbearing to me.
Beatle-ish pop? Nice and tasty. Bit of similar fizz again maybe? Something in the cymbals I think. Maybe its just my playback at the moment, have to check on other sources.
(Nice "play on words" title) Now we jump to another era! Diggin the guitar tones again! Nice use of tempo change.
Nice piano ballad intro. Just the right length too. Nice tune with jazzy bits and lots of change ups. I like it.
