La pochette de “Second Contribution” contraste avec la richesse sonore de l’album. Les chansons, telles que “She was waiting for her mother at the station in Toronto”, “Keep on”, “Sleepwalker”, et “Song for mister C.”, montrent la polyvalence de Phillips, passant d’un vibrato intense à des rugissements bluesy. L’album comprend également des odes folk majestueuses comme “The ballad of Casey Deiss”. Des miniatures variées ajoutent à sa diversité, avec une finale en acoustique sur “Steel eyes”, mettant en valeur la voix grave de Phillips.

The cover of “Second Contribution” does little to enhance Phillips’ visibility, with a desert-like setting featuring a figure clad in black, holding a twelve-string guitar. Despite the stark imagery, the album’s sound is richer than its predecessor. The tracks, such as “She was waiting for her mother at the station in Toronto”, “Keep on”, “Sleepwalker”, and “Song for mister C.”, showcase Phillips’ versatility, ranging from intense vibrato to bluesy roars. The album also features majestic folk odes like “The ballad of Casey Deiss”. Diverse miniatures add to its variety, with an acoustic finale on “Steel eyes”, highlighting Phillips’ deep, poised vocals.
