CD Reviews

Faint praise and happy accidents
F T Taylor, Jr. | Dallas, TX | 08/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the debut album of a rising band from Louisville, Kentucky who are lead by Billy Bartley. Without a doubt, this is great music! If you are looking to make a comparison with better known musicians, well let's see: Boby Dylan, Tom Petty, and a touch of Counting Crows. Their sound has the right combination of guitar rhythm, drum beat, rockabilly and pleasant mystery. All of their tracks sound fantastic!! I am particularly fond of "tongue tied", "contradiction intention", "grace", "we can go", and "i feel". Don't miss adding these rising stars to your cd collection."
Mind of their own

"I have been going crazing trying to find this band. I heard one of their songs on the radio while on vacation and could only remember the title of the song, "If you can". I am happy to report that I found the album and love it. Finally a band with their own sound. William Bartley's voice is incredibly sexy and mysterious as you will hear right off the bat on "How Beautiful are Thee". slackshop's sound is one I hope continues to grow. It's nice to finally hear a band out there with a mind of their own."
..just brilliant

"Next to nobody has heard of these guys but this cd is really awesome - I know some people who thought it was a new Tom Petty record or something and I guess I can hear that in there too. But it's really just a right combination of wailing melody, shimmering guitarplay and just beautiful music. It does take a few listens to really grab you but most music I really like ends up being that way anyway. What can I say? It's always a delight to find such unknown bands before they make it to the big league and usually lose some of the magic. I dunno if these guys make it there, but it'd be a shame if they didn't. Check it out."
