This album is the definitive Drivin' N' Cryin' album.
Earle Neil Wester
This record remains the favorite of most dnc fans, since it comes from their most creative and unique period.

It was really the only song I liked by them, it was good to hear it again.

If you grew up in the south (particularly Georgia) in the late 80's early 90's you can understand why this album is held so dear to so many. It smells like a spring day, tastes like a cold beer, and sums up being young and pleasantly naive.

This record remains the favorite of most dnc fans, since it comes from their most creative and unique period. Continuing the previous record's ("The Whisper Tames the Lion") balancing act between hard rock and folk, "Mystery Road" brings these two aspect's of the band's sound closer together by delving into southern rock--"Toy Never Played With," "Wild Dog Moon," and the anthemic "Honeysuckle Blue"--and by upping the ante on the folk/country side with the top-notch writing (veering from story-song and socio-political rant) of "Ain't it Strange," "With the People," "Peacemaker," and the band's signature song "Straight to Hell," a trash-country sing-along if ever there was one. And I haven't even mentioned "Wild Dog Moon," a "Rocket Queen"-style anthem. In 1989, reviewers were apt to mislabel the band as "southern rock," but it's more than that. If your tastes include Neil Young, Son Volt, or like bands, then you might like "Mystery Road."

Mystery Road is a beautiful combination of rock, folk, and a touch of bluegrass without a twangy southern voice. This collection of songs is truly an album (a distant concept these days), and one song flows nicely into the next. The album has a nice blend of rock (Honeysuckle Blue, Wild Dog Moon) and some more folksy songs (Peacemaker and Straight to Hell).
To those of you who are unfamiliar with Drivin N Cryin (or who have only heard one or two songs), I highly urge you to check out Mystery Road. If you like R.E.M. or the Indigo Girls, you'd probably like DNC. This band is a quality group of guys who care about making good music.

This was the current release when dnc played the yearly Winterfest concert at my high school in Chattanooga, TN. That was probably the loudest show hosted at the school up to that point, and one of the biggest names to play one of the Winterfest shows.

I was a sophmore at the time, and found their music to be different than most of what was popular at that point. While it's possible to mindlessly sing along, most of the words of all the dnc songs have some sort of meaning, like the helplessness of an elderly man losing his home in "House For Sale," and pride in Southern scenery found in "Honeysuckle Blue." And who hasn't been drunk and belted along to "Straight To Hell?"

While this album was the current one at the time of the show, the band treated us to some cuts from the soon-to-be-released "Fly Me Courageous."

This album is a good one to look at the band when their reputation was building, and their sound was evolving toward the hard-rock sound that brought them onto MTV.

Good ol'boy Southern fried classic rock that is very consistent from the beginning to the end of the album. I get the feeling,if this album is any indication,that they are more than a beer drinkin'and hell raisin' type of band.
The song arrangements and production appear to be very fresh and clear to me considering that this album was made in the late '80's.
These guys seem to exude a dedication and maturity that to me makes them seem to be a very tight musical unit that writes great lyrics and plays strongly as they whip thru each tune.
It's a shame that although DnC has a great history and following in the south that they weren't bigger than one hit wonders(Remember Fly Me Courageous?) in the rest of the states.
They are still out there chugging along.
Try this one out.

Drivin' n' Cryin's 3rd album, is solid. "Mystery Road", didn't chart and that's a shame, too many people buying Tone Loc and M.C. Hammer at the time. Kevin Kinney wrote a great album here. It start's out with the Appalachian fiddle played by Mikel Kinney for the fiddle popper "Ain't It Strange", "Toy Never Played With", brings out the riff-rockin' DNC. Great tune and video of "Honeysuckle Blue", loved this song since it's release, I got married when this was popular. The great chord changing folk-rockin' "Wild Dog Moon", followed by the jangly folk "House For Sale", the down home "Peacemaker", a favorite of mine, love the mandolin. The rocker "You Don't Know Me", "Malfunction Junction", a superb riff-rocker, agreat chugger of a tune. And they close with the classic country rock of "Straight To Hell", you can't beat this song for nothing. Michelle Malone sang on this record, she's been recording for 20 plus years, and had a good album last year with "Debris". In 2009 DNC released a great rockin' comeback album "Great American Bubble Factory".

This album is the definitive Drivin' N' Cryin' album. Standouts include "Straight to Hell," the then overplayed southern youth anthem.
Mystery Road also includes one of my personal favorites, "Honeysuckle Blue," a song whose lyrics and sublime melodies capture the verve of my youth in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains.
Also notable: the angst ridden "Toy Never Played With" and melodic "Syllables."
Tell me, have you ever seen the Blue Ridge Mountains boys or the Chattahoochee or the honeysuckle blue?
