    Michael Johnson has a relaxed, pleasant voice with an ever-so-slight bluesy feel. The mellow songs on Departure complement his voice. The four tracks (including the title track) written by Hugh Prestwood plus the W.T. Davidson-penned "She's Real" are the highlights of this fine pop album. There's not a bad song in the bunch. Allison Krauss makes a subtle guest appearance. ~ Tim Griggs
