Alt. country minus the alt. attitude
Earth that Was | 01/01/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is one of the "under-rated greats". Probably the best of the Lonesome Strangers' albums, along with their excellent self titled album. This is fine rockin' country with a true 'new traditionalist' feel for the hillbilly roots, but it all new songs, no homages or covers, no rural corn and no rustic hokum.
I'm tempted to call this alt.country. But thankfully minus the whole self consiously alt-iness that weakens the whole alt.country genre. In a way it is musically comparable to Robbie Fulks although where Fulks specialises in a cynical lyric line, the Lonesome Strangers follow a more traditional country lyric line.
One of my favourite country albums, I think if you give it a chance it could be one of yours' too. I wish I knew what happened to these guys."
