CD Reviews grow up in Georgia
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you grew up in the south (particularly Georgia) in the late 80's early 90's you can understand why this album is held so dear to so many. It smells like a spring day, tastes like a cold beer, and sums up being young and pleasantly naive."

"This record remains the favorite of most dnc fans, since it comes from their most creative and unique period. Continuing the previous record's ("The Whisper Tames the Lion") balancing act between hard rock and folk, "Mystery Road" brings these two aspect's of the band's sound closer together by delving into southern rock--"Toy Never Played With," "Wild Dog Moon," and the anthemic "Honeysuckle Blue"--and by upping the ante on the folk/country side with the top-notch writing (veering from story-song and socio-political rant) of "Ain't it Strange," "With the People," "Peacemaker," and the band's signature song "Straight to Hell," a trash-country sing-along if ever there was one. And I haven't even mentioned "Wild Dog Moon," a "Rocket Queen"-style anthem. In 1989, reviewers were apt to mislabel the band as "southern rock," but it's more than that. If your tastes include Neil Young, Son Volt, or like bands, then you might like "Mystery Road.""
Mystery Road is quite simply one of the finest albums I own.

"Mystery Road is a beautiful combination of rock, folk, and a touch of bluegrass without a twangy southern voice. This collection of songs is truly an album (a distant concept these days), and one song flows nicely into the next. The album has a nice blend of rock (Honeysuckle Blue, Wild Dog Moon) and some more folksy songs (Peacemaker and Straight to Hell). To those of you who are unfamiliar with Drivin N Cryin (or who have only heard one or two songs), I highly urge you to check out Mystery Road. If you like R.E.M. or the Indigo Girls, you'd probably like DNC. This band is a quality group of guys who care about making good music."
