CD Reviews

Already a classic
Mitchell Howard | Havelock North, NZ | 04/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recently I put this album on in the car at the beginning of a road trip to sell incredibly good Hawkes Bay, New Zealand wine, to the great unwashed, thru out the Lower North Island in New Zealand.

It had been a while since I'd played it but to be fair I had already rated it as an alt country classic and purchased all the Bellwether albums I could lay my hands on. (I still need one)

This time around I was surprised and even ejected the CD thinking I had mistakenly thrown in an old Son Volt or Farmer Not So John album. Not to be. Tthe first song suddenly struck me as an absolute Alt Country classic and rapidly in my mind an all time classic opening track, and on it goes this album slowly over time insinuates itself into you. It is an absolute classic, no question. Its brilliance is in its understatedness and immediate familiarity. Its not until you realise how much you are enjoying it that it uncovers its true depths and beauty.

If you enjoy anything in the wide field of alt country, new country, no depression genre's, then search for this album because it is not mainstream. Buy it and enjoy some of the finest music made."
Classic alt country
S. Jensen | Minneapolis, MN United States | 08/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With each listen this album gets better and better, until you realize it's as good as any alt country album in your collection. It doesn't blow you out of your chair like early Uncle Tupelo, but instead weaves itself into your brain like Son Volt. There may be few obvious "hits" (as if there ever were any alt country hits), but taken as a whole, this ranks at the top of the alt country genre. Fans of Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt, Whiskeytown, The Jayhawks, and Blue Mountain will not be disappointed -- as long as they allow this subtle-but-great album to really sink in."
Alt-Country Gold
Dwayne Cantrell | Lexington, KY United States | 07/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album, in my humble opinion is the best of the 3 CDs this band has put out. Think of it as Jayhawks meet classic Wilco meet Ryan Adams. Every song is very good, although Front Yard stands out above all the rest. This is one of those songs you will play over and over. The songwriting is very unique throughout the entire record- you will hear new meanings each time you listen."
