Chicago's folk favorite Sons are celebrating their 20th anniversary of their search for the musical grail with King Fisher King
, highlighting the song writing talents of Sue Demel: ''Eve
is the best song I've heard all year.'' - Richard Milne, WXRT. Roper's celtic/traditionally tinged Arkansas
is a poetic and powerful dance with fiddles, mandocellos and banjos telling tall tales, accompanied by Sons' iconic harmonies. Lader's lush Window
is a glorious remembrance with her trademark guitar style and collage-like lyrics. Demel's Face on Mars
is a view from a lonely planet with perfect piano and vocal touches by her band mates. ''Our most pointed album.'' - Bruce Roper.
An exuberant, optimistic approach to music-making. --Chicago Tribune
