Customer Reviews

Give this album a listen.
Owen M
Though it's the same 3 guys, each song has a really different feel, and they did a great job in choosing a variety of moods and rhythms of the songs.

This is Another Great Album by a great band.

Good Old War comes out with another great album. The self titled album showcases their growth and skill as musicians together. it incorporates more complex rhythms and riffs while adding in the accordion to drummer Tim Arnold's line up of instruments (which already includes the keys and vocals). their vocal melodies are still perfectly in tune and actually take it beyond their Simon-and-Garfunkel-esque harmonies. Songs like "My Own Sinking Ship" and "I Should Go" retain the same, catchy style that they brought out in their first album. The album also shows off drummer Tim Arnold's (arguably my favorite drummer of all time) not only drum skills, but skills as a versatile musician and vocalist. He brings back some of the showing off with rhythms and subtleties that he drew me in with as a kid in Days Away.

But where it falls is in some of their new style, some songs such as "Sneaky Louise" are a bit too folksy and cute sounding for me, at least, to take completely seriously. It just reminds me of my ex-hippy 40-year-old, male nanny when i was growing up. But it redeems itself in its new songs like "That's Some Dream," "My Name's Sorrow," and "Get Some" bring forth a new style, which clearly draws from their previous work, but adds in some of that classic folk sound, with some slightly darker vocal melodies and instrumental compositions which really bring back a new style that keeps them at the front of my favorite musicians list.

We saw Good Old War at the Cleveland House of Blues when we saw Xavier Rudd. I bought both of their CD's and absolutely love them!

This album is spectacular! First of all, the layout is really innovative. The three shorter tracks titled good, old, and war respectively are poetically woven into the album and exhibit beautiful, instrument-focused melodies designed, I think, to showcase their creativity. Though it's the same 3 guys, each song has a really different feel, and they did a great job in choosing a variety of moods and rhythms of the songs. The harmonies are glorious, as usual, and the perfection that is attained in this album is what music is all about. I just cannot stop myself from listening to this, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!!

If not for the deal of the day when it was available for $2.99, I would have missed what is a very good album! I listened to a few samples, and was immediately impressed by this band. Needless to say, I downloaded it and have already listened to it several times. This is solid throughout, although "Here Are the Problems" stands out for me. Recommended to anyone who likes Fleet Foxes, or to go way back- Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Their debut "Only Way To Be Alone" is also one of the $5.00 deals for June- do yourself a favor and pick that one up, too!

I like this CD - a lot. In the month or so that I've owned Good Old War, I've listened to it dozens and dozens of times and like it all the more each time. I hate to sound so gushy, but I have nothing bad to say about the CD. Even the filler tracks, Good, Old, and War, are enjoyable to listen to. I've recommended the CD to several others, and will continue to do so. I'm curious to hear some of their other work now, but until then, I'll keep listening to this self-titled CD.

Their second album is a wonderful listen from beginning to end and front to back. For only $5.99 its a steal too! These guys have an amazing way with beautiful lyrics and harmonies. This album, like their last is just perfect summer music to sit around a campfire. My personal favorite right now is "That's Some Dream". They are one folk/rock group that you should be getting more attention.
