- When Drivin n Cryin relased its prior last studio album in 1997, I remember the band playing a live show at Little Five Points in Atlanta, GA on the night of the release. A local radio station, 99X, aired the show. I listened to the show's entirety, went to bed at 11:30, and then got up at 5:30 to go and teach elementary school.
- Biographies aside, this Drivin n Cryin release reminds me of their last in that this work stirs a consciousness within its listener. The songs are relavant to both our country as a collective and the individals who make up its society. Though the band has gotten older, they made their first album "Scarred but Smarter" 25 years ago; their genuine talent and enthusiasm still prevails.
- Drivin n Cryin remains an exemplary band who possesses an acumen for diversity by intermingling Rock, Powerpop, Country, Folk, Blues, and Americana to render listeners the brilliant "Great American Bubble Factory". The CD's title track is electrified Folk blended with a nice dose of Powerpop and horns. "Don't You Know" is quirky Country with happy humanity; Tim's mandolin is crisp and perfect. "Trainwreck" is vibrant, romping Hard Rock; Mack Carter shows what a great guitarist he is. Personally, my favorite songs on the disc are "Let Me Down" and "Detroit City". The pure Americana of "This Town" which appears on Kevn's stellar "Flower and the Knife" solo CD is reworked with superior results; Dave V. Johnson's understated percussion on the song is a nice enhancement.
- Drivin n Cryin, led from its inception by Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen, is a band that has endured because of musical telepathy and shared vision. Dave V. Johnson is an immensely versatile drummer. Apparently, he had freedom to experiment on this CD.

I've really enjoyed listening to this for the last couple of weeks. I picked up my copy at a concert they played, and the whole band even signed the cover, which was pretty cool. When I first popped it in, I was pretty doubtful, because I don't think the disc really gets going until several tracks in. Ironically enough, the band plays live the three weakest tracks on the record: I Stand Tall, Great American Bubble Factory and Detroit City. I can groove a bit beginning at tracks 3 and 4 with I See Georgia and Midwestern Blues, and then the record really gets down to business with Let Me Down. Great hook, love the main riff with the subtle distortion. I Stand Tall leaves me cold, but then we get a great little southern tune that will really get your feet tapping. The rest of the disc will not disappoint with a mix of some hard-rocking tunes and one more song that sounds right at home in any small town in the hills of northern Georgia. This last tune, which is also last on the record, has actually already appeared on a DNC album, but here it sounds fresh, new and inspired. It's good to have the boys back, and here's hoping that they can pull another one out of the sleeve a little more quickly than they did this record.

Kevn Kinney is a great songwriter. Melodious Southern hard rock and soulful folk tunes, that's mostly what you get with DNC. I have never been disappointed by anything this band has ever done. Detroit City should have received a lot of airplay. Wicked, hard-driving blues on Let Me Down. Strong observations about what's gone wrong and what we've lost in this country - Whatever Happened to the Great American Bubble Factory; Peapproved, Predenied; Midwestern Blues (one of my favorites);This Town. Trainwreck is just flat-out smoking hard rock.
I've read some really negative stuff about KK's voice - Guess you people just don't get it. All I can say is, if you ever saw them live, you'd understand...He didn't need a microphone.

Kevn and the boys return to ATL for antoher classic rocking cd. Cynical and soulful.. to relate to the "tough times" were at in 2012. Plenty of nice rock Riffs and comedy as only DNC do it.. I am an old school fan and everyone I know confirms this is a classic. Buy this cd, it will renew your faith in southern Rock my brothas.
