The MC4 grew stronger. Their second single, 1988's Clear Blue Sky is more frenetic than ever. On "Clear Blue Sky" Wiz lets the rain clouds depart for a host ringing guitars and an expansive chorus that just keeps building as the song winds up.
"Distant Relatives" is another song of sweet sorrow. While Wiz, with his vocals dominating the mix, laments the absence of his family, the chorus still cries out, "Don't ever leave me, Don't ever wander, don't ever let me slip away". A masterwork, only made sadder by Wiz's early passing.
