Super first and only album for these guys. John Dittrich is the lead in this group.
Promising band lets us down ( 2.5 stars )

"The Buffalo Club is made up of vocalist Ron Hemby, Charlie Kelly on lead guitar, and Restless Heart's John Dietrich on drums. Great name, great talent....ready, set-hold it.A less than firm album gets to a not bad start on 'You Should See Her Now'. Hemby has great pipes, and his dusty vocals are cool. In this tune, when the chorus comes around, it gets you wincing as he nearly squelches the title. Musically, it's a big catch. Nice job mostly.'Heart Hold On' and 'The Funny Thing' are pale, failing to impress, filling space and nothing more. It gets better later, when 'If She Don't Love You' comes around. Finally, the band impresses. Sure, the song is safe and a bit familiar formula. The song nonetheless is a good one.'After Alice' makes a gloomy day gloomier. A good song, just don't get caught listening to it on a day of rain. That's how effective it is.The quality takes a step back again on'End Of Lonely Road'. The band skips again in and through another filler that doesn't mean much. 'I Wish For You' is such a beauty, you'll forgive the guys for all the others that didn't do enough. Thoughtful and tender, really tender.The best is (ironically) saved for last, and it really is one of the best contemporary country tunes out there. 'Nothing Less Than Love' is a triumphant and tall song , with a big beat and nice rythym. Hemby, Dietrich and Kelly all sound terrific with the harmonies, and could almost vocally compete with a better trio, Blackhawk.I must say that just because this album is overall weak, I still really had a lot of faith in this band since some of their songs really impressed me a lot. Waiting for a new album to arrive, they amicably parted ways after their label, Rising Tide, washed out. Too bad. I had faith the'Club' would get better."

"Let's admit it, this ain't no Album of the Year nor Group of the Year. But it sails well. All songs are easy-to-the-ear and while they don't break new grounds, they're not bad. Put this in your car, and the songs will pass enjoyably without hurting your ears or giving you a headache. Don't look for clever lyrics or extraordinary melodies but take this set rather like a good way to relax in your car on the highway in the rain."
