Pssst... want to know a secret? This is a GREAT album.

"This is an amazing, life-changing album and its a darned shame it never got the recognition it deserved. I can throw this masterpiece on the stereo (or the iPod these days) and it just goes down easy with its gritty, down-and-dirty, world-weary mood. Great for those days when your PO'd at the world but know its a little to late to call that girl or tell your current boss to stick it.In many ways, the Silos sound closely resembles alt-country with a Southwestern flavor, and with a little Rock en Espanol thrown in for good measure. It's too bad that they never caught on, but on this album, at least, they caught lightning in a bottle, and created a collection that deserves a far wider audience. There's no shortage of real classics on here (Caroline, The Only Story I Tell, Commodore Peter, Porque No) but the real standout is I'm Over You. This is a get-over-the-bad-break-up song that rivals the best ones out there by capturing the conflicting sense of regret and freedom.I'm gonna phone her, but not today
I'm gonna write her, but not today
Today I'm gonna be
Driving down Highway 441 with the windows down
A beer in one hand, the radio blasting
My old needs I won't recognize
I'm Over YouIf you're looking for a solid album to add to the rotation, check this gem out."
A damn shame

"If you have Loaded, Pleased to Meet Me, any REM (up through Monster or so), or any of the Jimmy Miller-produced Stones albums (save for Goat's Head Soup) in your collection, and you listen to them with any regularity, do yourself a favor and get this album. It's the one with the crow's head on the cover. At least I think it's a crow's head. It might be a penguinn.

Alt-Country Fans Take Notice

"I grew up in Florida seeing the likes on Molley Hatchett, Greg Allman, and Tom Petty perform. Fast forward to the 80s, and while the folks in Athens, Winston-Salem, and other southern college towns were experimenting with fusing southern rock and country traditions with indy and punk, the Silos showed up in Gainesville, FL and had an interesting twist. The lead singer is the son of Cuban immigrants, and he does sing one song in Spanish on this cd, but the whole feel is alt-country (before the genre existed). When he sings about "driving down 441, a beer in one hand and the radio blasting...I'm over you" he harnesses the power and tradition of Hank Williams but with the styling of the Rave-Ups, X, and eventually what will be Son Volt."
