Editorial Reviews

"Fly Me Courageous" is the best D'n'C album by such a wide margin it is scary. Never before (or since) have they shown such a remarkable ability to write great songs. Need an example? Try "Around the Bloock Again," the title track, "For You" or "Let's Go Dancin'." The guitar work is excellent and the lyrics are amazing in their depth. Few hard rock bands ever achieve this level of mastery. Fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers in particular should appreciate it.

This is how rock records should sound - fresh! Listening even today there's no sign of cliches or recycled ideas. It's a great sound - a twinge of the south and a crunch of arena rock blended together.

I grew up on this disc. There are albums out there that when you listen to them they take you back. This is it for me. Virtually the whole album is significant. The Innocent and Fly Me Courageous are just about as good as it gets. If you have never heard Drivin' n Cryin', do yourself a favor and at least listen. Great stuff.

dnc's label, Island, pushed Kevn Kinney, et al toward mainstream hard rock with this release, hoping to get a band that would both rock and possess universal appeal through superior, socially-conscious songwriting (like Midnight Oil or late-80s rem). The result is the band's best-selling record, _Fly Me Courageous_. The increased contribution of hard rock guitarist Buren Fowler and the paring down of the softer side of dnc's personality led to a solid rock record which featured memorable, melodic riffs and rock radio tunes such as the title song, "Build a Fire," and "The Innocent." The country-fied "For You" balances the bombast, as does the Petty-esque "Let's Go Dancing," but mostly the band goes for the "Rockin' in the Free World" approach. Producer Geoff Workman (whose credits include Motley Crue) adds considerable polish to the band's sound, but while it almost put them over the top, the record is not quite as unique as their previous two efforts.

anyone who thinks that this cd is terrible compared to earlier dnc albums is insane. if all your looking for is the same song structure as everyother previous song, than you should stick with the old ones and not insult an awsome peice of artwork. dnc are probably the best song writters in their genre. this cd just shows more of their flexibility to create great music and not bore the world with new lyrics to the same old songs. this cd is a great change yet keeps with their poetic nature of previous material

I listened to this album endlessly as a teenager in the 90's and every song stuck in my head. On a recent flight home, I decided to look it up again on my mp3 player and was surprised at how fresh the album sounded and every bit as good as I remember it being. There are a number of stand out tracks (already mentioned in previous reviews) but pretty much every song has its charm and gets its hooks into you. The sound is somewhere between Soul Asylum and Red Hot Chili Peppers, with crisp guitar work throughout. Kevn Kinney's vocals might not be to everyone's liking, which might help explain the "one good song" reviews, but there's a lot here to like if your listening tastes are a little varied. This is a classic 90's rock album that deserves more attention.

The same year that this was released my younger brother finally succumbed to a disease that no person should have to suffer from. The person who I thought was the love of my life also left me that year. In Idaho we have a lot of country roads almost completely devoid of traffic so I did a fair amount of what the band was called and found that this particular flavor of the month band had songs that were quite appealing to me. I played it for friends who also enjoyed it but I'm always in search of the new next best thing and it was forgotten. One day I was going through a box of old cassettes (Yes, my old tapes) and found this again. I went to Amazon and downloaded it immediately. I still love it after all these years.

Drivin' n' Cryin' is a hard rock country-alt
type band. Every album is different but great.
This is best hard rock album of the 90's that
nobody ever talks about. Songs like the title
track Fly me, The Innocent, Build a fire are
classic rock songs and should be played on
every station. It's ashame these guys never
got their due but they seem to be like the
Ramones, Thin Lizzy, Motorhead and other real
rock bands that have dedicated fans. This CD is
always one of my favorites even today! BUY IT!
