The album opens with the title track "Proceed with Caution," a song that features Calvin Quise's quintessential, comfortable and intricate guitars, followed by M3 "Efflugence," with its fast-paced rhythms, technical guitars and Brazilian comfort, and M4 "Affection," with its blues-like structure that invites dancing. The title track "Proceed with Caution", M3 "Efflugence" with its fast-paced rhythm, technical guitars and Brazilian comfort, M4 "Aunt Lovey" with its blues-like structure that invites you to dance, and the last song "Night Cry" with its moody atmosphere reminiscent of a jazz cafe, all six songs have different colors, and Calvin Keyes' amazing guitar skills are on full display!
