You don't hear authentic rock'n'roll much anymore. The Springsteen, Tom Petty, Jerry Lee Lewis kind. The ice cold beer and red hot guitar kind. The kind with unfettered emotional urgency. Bursting from the seams. Scott Miller & the Commonwealth do just that on Citation. Citation is no fear. Flat out. No tiptoeing around subject or language or anything. Feet firmly planted on the ground. Rock'n'roll. The kind you don't hear too much anymore.Scott Miller & the Commonwealth went to Memphis, Tennessee, and cut this record in 14 days. Produced by the legendary Jim Dickinson (Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Replacements, Big Star).

5 Stars Is The Easy Part

"I love the attitude of this record. There were signs of it in Thus Always To Tyrants and Upside Downside, but Citation drives it home. From the opening notes of "Freedom Was A Stranger", this CD pulls you in. Scott uses dynamics in this record to help drive home all the important points. In a day and age when artists are out there protesting everything from the President to Colonel Sanders, it was refreshing to hear a real protest. A protest of the people who have fed you full of s**t all your life, from your best friend who steals your girl while you are deployed overseas (listen to "Jody") to the halls of congress who slings enough bulls**t to power a big engine designed to run on it (listen to "8 Miles A Gallon"). Perhaps the best protest is the album itself which seems to protest getting older. 5 Stars was the easy part for me. Taking the CD out of my player has proven to be the hard part."

"Scott Miller writes and plays like a seasoned veteran in what is an extremely complex presentation of heart, soul, and sweat. Smokin' hot. I see dead people when I hear `The Only Road...' homage to the Minor Chord so full of angst, despair, longing and a generations' lost innocence that I find myself practically in mourning after each spin. That one's a single with attitude. My bourgeois favorite has to be 'Eight Miles a Gallon' and its no-nonsense rock and roll, but I found a much deeper appreciation of `Still People Are Moving,' the tribute to American hero Sam Houston (`Say Ho'), 'Wild Things,' 'On a Roll,' and 'Long Goodnight.' Stunning and powerful.

"Stripped down, drinking, driving classic Scott Miller. More literary than past releases- a tad more understated. Stays with you for that very reason.
I would give it five stars but I have to save that rating for Willie and Family live- and scott's next record."
