Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Derailers' problem: If you love a band that sounds as perfectly like Ray Price and Buck Owens as the Derailers do, then why not buy some vintage Price and Owens instead? Reverb Deluxe occasionally confronts this problem by including a few more influences than on previous releases: "California Angel" is Gram Parsons-style country rock; two other songs suggest the Nashville Sound. But even on these cuts, the Derailers are sowing a fairly narrow field--and with songwriting that doesn't live up to their heroes'. So the problem remains. The concluding, hidden, track, a Bakersfield-styled cover of "Raspberry Beret," is an entertaining novelty, but no solution. --David Cantwell

CD Reviews

Great, fun music

"I disagree totally with the Amazon.com reviewer on this disc and Jackpot. I think the Derailers make music that is a lot of fun to listen to. They have great concerts and the good time they very obviously have on stage is shared by all in the audience. The CDs are quite good too. This is not "serious" music made for soul-searching or anything like that. It's not supposed to be. It is fun, twangy music that is great to sing along to. The band is very tight and Villanueva has an interesting and good voice. They have another disc coming out before the fall and I intend to add that one to my collection too. If you like old-timey twangy music, surf-inspired type music and certain '50s-60's light up-beat pop, you will love the Derailers."

"I finally am getting around to writing my thoughts about this excellent CD. I cant say enuf about it. This CD sounds like a greatest hits compilation! I love EVERY song on it and I dont think I can say that about any CD Ive ever purchased. The songs are catchy and so fun! Its hard to pick favorites but, I absolutely love California Angel, No One To Talk To, You Dont Have To Go.....oh its hard to pick! I have listened to Reverb countless times and I enjoy it every time. This band is wonderful and I truly wish all country fans would check them out, if they havent already!! This is one of the greatest cds Ive ever heard. Thanks Derailers! Wendy from MI."

"I just picked up this CD on 6/3/00. It is great. I hate it has been out so long and I am just now getting it. The Derailers have a sound some what like Buck Ownes or Dwight Yoakam. I would call it Honky Tonk Country. I am a fan of alt-country and this is one not to miss. The producer is Dave Alvin. When I saw he was the producer I knew this CD was worth a listen. I hope to get Western Dress soon."
