Editorial Reviews

Kieran Kane's Dead Reckoning is rooted in the acoustic simplicity and dark, knotty storytelling of pre-1960 country music. Kane wrote nine of the songs all by himself (no well-connected Music Row cowriters), and they seem cut from the same cloth as the two songs penned by Hank Williams Sr. and Buck Owens. All 11 arrangements leave lots of space around the world-weary vocals and the starkly sketched guitar lines as if the lyrics' open-ended possibilities needed room to develop. On the bouncy, Steve Earle-ish opening tune, for example, Kane sings of escaping the crime and pollution of "This Dirty Little Town," but his vocal bears a hint of fatalism, as if he knows he's not leaving any time soon. Kane gets help throughout the album from Emmylou Harris, Mike Henderson, and Lucinda Williams, but the focus is where it should be--on Kane's songs, which are strong enough to captivate the listener without a lot of fuss and clutter. --Geoffrey Himes

Format: Audio CD
This album is far superior to Kane's most recent album, the dull "Six Months, No Sun." Here, his songwriting is first rate, particularly on the witty "This Dirty Little Town," in which he gets down and grooves with Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris." Some of Kane's songs have a bit of the Irish in them, but basically he never strays far from singer-songwriter country rock. Overall, this is an overlooked independent label album that deserved a bigger audience.

Dead Reckonong is an ideal introduction to the talents of Kieran Kane. Recorded in 1994 with Dead Reckoning label partners including Mike Henderson (guitars), Tammy Rogers (fiddle) and Harry Stinson (drums) providing support, the tracks on "ead Reckoning are well structured, sung, arranged and played and effortlessly cross the alternative country, roots, folk and rock boundraries with precision and ease. Overall, Dead Reckoning is extremely user friendly and will satisfy fans of contemporary singer song writers and those (like myself) who need to add some more twang and rockin' pedal steel to their CD collection.

Cool Me Down.... One of the coolest songs I have heard in a long time. The album is pretty good, but this song is excellent . To bad Kane isn't advertised much like other music. I heard that song by accident & got hooked on it ever since.

...I first heard him as a member of the O'Kanes on "Home of Happy Feet", KUNM radio's roots music program, and, frankly, I liked his name enough to remember to check out this CD. After the first listen, you think: this is almost too good to be true. After the fifth listen, you think: this is the best CD I've ever heard. Kane is a jewel. If Americana music interests you, Kieran Kane will surprise and delight and make you want more.

When I first got the disc, I played it constantly for days on end and I never got bored. I heard something new each with each spin. I also own Six Months No Sun (which I also liked) but Dead Rekoning is a superb disc which I recommend to anyone who appreciates good music.
