The catchy cut "Oh Sheila" has a hook that closely resembles Ready for the World's 1985 R&B hit of the same name, but instead of RFTW's plea to a potential lover, "let me love you till the morning comes," Chrisinti's chorus advises a wronged woman to "run that worthless boy there off of your veranda." In "Magic Stuff," a frolicking ska tune with comedic tuba counterpoint, Chrisinti teases his paramour, "Tell me if you want my love, 'cause if you do, I'll give it up." The down-tempo, quiet storm of "Love Is Gonna Keep Us Together" is accented with flamenco-style guitars, giving it a beachy, pastoral feel. Chrisinti picks up his "freedom fighter" banner on a few songs, bracing listeners for hard times with cuts like "Come What May" and "Runnings Run." Again's lead single is a funky, uplifting number called "Ruff Ride," but the track, like the rest of the album, is so jovial and upbeat, it's more like a smooth sail.
