The Mexican neighbors' women are crying

"The second greatest rock album ever recorded. The entire album has an organic transition, and should be listened to on "repeat," but stand out songs include "Calling Up Thunder" "Watermelon Man" and "Fire of Love." But the most outstanding song is the ballad "Texas Serenade" in which guitars and vocals alternate the lead and a haunting slide guitar cleans up and transitions us into the ether after an extended lead guitar solo has rent every last tear from your heart. It is as if we are watching the corpse twitch to stillness and the soul rise, while still surrounded by heat in the sweat of recent violence and the faint iron smell of rust and blood. A beautiful and moving song."
