Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's a peculiar sort of alchemy at work behind Fred Eaglesmith's brand of roots rock. His musical influences are certainly eclectic--a bit of voodoo blues here, some T Bone Burnett there, not to mention traces of rockabilly, bluegrass, and even the odd nod to Tom Waits. But Eaglesmith effortlessly blends them into a seamless, powerful whole that sounds exactly like the sort of music you dream of hearing in some crowded, hot, beery bar near closing time. And that's really the point. For all his influences, Eaglesmith conjures up a truly timeless brand of primitive rock & roll. "Gettin' to Me" manages the amazing feat of fusing Del Shannon and Link Wray without sounding dated (think of "Runaway" propelled by reverb-drenched guitar lines), while "Crazier" is the kind of unadorned tearjerker that Nashville hasn't produced since the '60s. And once you hear "Blue Tick Hound," a swampy exercise in Zeppelin-esque dissonance, you'd never guess Eaglesmith is considered something of a folksinger. --Percy Keegan

5.0 out of 5 stars Country music for the 21st century September 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Fred Eaglesmith have really managed to take country music to a new level. He builds up a musical and lyrical landscape whith strong ties to old heroes like Hank Williams, Bill Monroe and Elvis Presley. But even though he never strays from the tradition he has taken the old ways and adapted them to the 21st century. "50 odd dollars" starts where his last record "Lipstick lies and gasoline" left off. This time the songs have a somewhat rawer edge to them, but the lyrics deal with the same kind of issues as his last record: loneliness, desperation, cadillacs and guns. This record is a must buy for every country and rock'n roll fan out there who believes in the future of a musical tradition that is allmost dead in comercial radio and television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surf Alterna-tonk? It works! June 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's interesting to see the change and development of this great band over the last three albums. There's still some classic broken-beer-bottles-and-chickenwire Eaglsmith on this album, but more impressive is to hear the new things that are going on. Definately worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance through simplicity June 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The beauty of Fred is that he has an uncanny ability to cut to the chase with simple yet profound lyrics and music. He's clever and insightful without being overly dramatic or cryptic. He cuts right through and gives you damn good honest music! This album is certainly different from prior releases though not better - just different. His use of studio musicians and electricity shows a different side of the band. Not one you would likely see at one of his live shows. Through this CD he shows that he's got range as the review above indicates. Blue Tick Hound rocks, Alternator swings, Carter swoons, and Mighty Big Car flat out kicks butt.

4.0 out of 5 stars New territory for Fred, but worth the trip! September 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a new direction for this band. Longtime fans are familiar with his more acoustic, multi-instrumental work. I was a little surprised with the sound of this CD at first..but I fell in love with almost immediately. The surf guitar on "Gettin' To Me" totally shreds! It's all still Fred; just cranked up to 10!!! Can't go wrong with this one!!!
