CD Reviews

A grand entrance to the Alt.Country movement
Duckadoo | Calgary, Canada | 08/03/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This album has it all... from the stalwart beginnings of the alternative country scene (Emmylou and Steve Earle and Gram Parsons) to the more rambunctous sounds of the edgier bands (BR5-49 and the Texas Tornadoes), it gives you a beautiful overview of what's in store behind that foggy glass which is alt.country. It even features a local band (Jr. Gone Wild) which unfortunately is defunct, but lead singer Mike McDonald still belts it out like he means it! An Lucinda... ahhhh Lucinda what can I say? If you are new to the genre, pick this bad boy up and get the taste of country dust in your mouth without the icky aftertaste of big ol' beltbuckles and red neck hassles."
Tangy and sweet

"I picked this one up because anything with the Mavericks on it has promise, and the rest of the album backed that up. I don't know how "alt" it is, but this is a great album for someone who isn't really sure they want to get into the whole country music scene. After you listen to this, you'll go willingly- the Emmylou Harris track is my favorite, as well as Steve Earle's Telephone Road. The Mavericks song isn't the one I'd choose, but they did right with the rest....... (except Junior Brown,this guy needs to go)"
