Country as played by punks--an idea whose time has come. With their fourth album, the Waco Brothers mellow out just a little, and the result is like smooth whiskey. Songs like "The Hand That Throws the Bottle Down" and "Broken Down Row" carry one all the way through depression and out the other side. --Genevieve Williams

THE WACO EXPRESS IS BACK IN TOWN!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Ex-Mekon Jon Langford and his band of Waco Brothers are back in the saddle with the new barn burner 'Waco World'.
Hang on to your boots and lock up your daughters when these guys come to town with this new batch of songs. This stuff is tequilla powered insurgent country with a biting lyrical edge.
Songs like 'Pigsville', 'Day Of The Dead' and 'Corrupted' are more Langford classics, and Deano throws in a house shaker with 'Red Brick Wall'.
See these guys on tour, and get it while it's hot!"
Not their best

"While I consider myself a big fan of the Waco Brothers, this latest offering from Chicago's country punk icons lacks the energy of their previous efforts. If you're looking for the best Jon Langford and his brethren have to offer look to "To The Last Dead Cowboy" or "Cowboy In Flames." Those discs have a key ingredient that "Waco World lacks," fun. This disc of mostly mid-tempo songs will be a disappointment to those turned on to the bands high-octane style exhibited in their previous efforts. I don't want to give the impression that this is not a good disc; on its own it is a solid set of songs. However, in comparison to their previous three recordings, it falls somewhat flat."
I LOVE IT!

"Alternative country music such as this might be the salvation of country music, returning it to its clever story telling. It's nice to hear something that doesn't fall into the "hat band" category.
-as told by composer Michael F. Patterson"
