Editorial Reviews

Following up to their critically-praised debut Ways Not to Lose, The Wood Brothers (vocalist/guitarist Oliver and bassist Chris) are back with their rootsy blend of Americana, Blues, and Folk on Loaded. Again enlisting longtime friend and artistic collaborator John Medeski as producer (who gets behind the keys on a few tracks as well), The Wood Brothers create an expansive exploration of their music, eschewing the more spare, acoustic, in-studio setting of their debut album for a more collaborative approach with other musicians and friends, resulting in a fleshed-out, multi-layered band effort. Blue Note. 2008.

The Wood Brothers are in no particular hurry to impress you. They just take their time and hope that the music will eventually speak for itself. I knew virtually nothing about the Wood Brothers, so I first played "Loaded" with no expectations at all. One by one, the songs glided past, leaving the subtle impression that I wanted to hear it again. Since that first listen, I've played this CD numerous times, and it keeps growing on me in ways that I never would have expected. There's no high-tech production, no musical gimmickry, no forced energy and no pandering to the audience anywhere on "Loaded." Instead, the songs lope along at a casual pace, enveloping their own space until they seem to physically become a part of it.
"Loaded" is an album built from natural ingredients, with an earthy production built around traditional instrumentation. The songs are full of warmth and space, and benefit greatly from vocals that are expressive yet relaxed. "Postcards From Hell" paints a subtle portrait of a lifer-musician, a man who plays music simply because he must. Oliver Wood beautifully captures the essence of this character, singing "If you ask him how he sings the blues so well, he says `I got a soul that I won't sell and I don't read no postcards from hell." Like most of the songs here, the image is poetic, but straightforward and honest. A similar moment occurs on the title track, which utilizes a few of the many interpretations of the word `loaded'. Accompanied by some brilliant steel guitar, Wood sings, "I was loaded, proud to say I was loaded. Sometimes the tip of my tongue is the barrel of a gun and it's loaded." Oliver's brother Chris (whom you may know from Martin, Medeski & Wood) sings, too, and the brothers usually pair up to write these organic gems.

Ways Not to Lose was my favorite album of 2006. Loaded may be my favorite of 2008. There is more instrumentation on this one. There are a couple tracks where I think the guest musicians get in the way. The song writing is outstanding on all the originals and they do a great job of putting their own stamp on Jimi Hendrix's "Angel" and Bob Dylan's "Buckets of Rain". This music really defies category. It's great modern roots music. Dripping with Blues and Folk with funky hooks and really interesting arranging. They put on a great live show too. Do yourself a favor and buy the album then go to a show.

The first time I saw the Wood Brothers live, it was in Cherry Hill, NJ in the park. I was hooked on these guys right then and there and have been a fan of everything they've done, including the older brother's work with Martin and Medeski. With "Loaded," they have kept up their good work. They just refuse to disappoint.

Excellent work on this piece, especially on standouts like "Postcards From Hell," "Lovin' Arms" and "Make Me Down A Pallet On Your Floor." It was also refreshing to hear Amos Lee make a short appearance on one of the tracks. But the thing that interested me the most was Chris Woods' solo performance on "Don't Look Back." I've never heard him sing before as his younger brother normally takes lead. It's a haunting, soulful piece that's not designed to impress or change your life. It's just a great song.

Well done, guys. Looking forward to the next album already!

This album is absolutely amazing from start to finish. It ranges from touching melodious folk to gritty and funky. Excellent lyrics and writing, excellent instrumentation, and excellent all around. Get this album!

The Wood Brothers - Loaded (2008)
Loaded, The Wood Brothers' 2nd album, is a fine example of "the song comes first." Stark solo acoustic tunes are intermixed with leisurely paced mellow rock tunes whose spirit is at once funky, soulful, melodic and easy on the ear. Tunes swagger with the confidence of a seemingly effortless delivery, but the production is honest, humble and free of gloss, evoking a cool, uncluttered spirit so reminiscent of The Band. If you like the artists below, this album is a shoe-in for you.

Genres: Folk Rock, Mellow Rock.

Buy if you like: Jackson Browne, The Band, Little Feat

Key Tracks: "Lovin' Arms," "Angel," "Pray Enough."

Let me start by saying this album is good. It might be really good. But I came with the expectations of the first album, and it's just not that. This album is produced nicely - but maybe over-produced. The core strengths are still there - grainy, soulful, catchy, folk-with-a-twist - but I listened to it and wanted a little more. This album sounds like they're trying a little too hard - they didn't capture the raw beauty of the first album. Again, maybe that's ok, but it wins second place in my book. Get the album - you'll like it - but don't get this one instead of the first.

Great CD from a great band. Not so well known, but great music. Should be played more on the radio so more people could discover how great they are.
