Great, catchy, well-written songs by talented and experienced musicians.

Formed of Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold (Days Away) and Dan Schwartz(Unlikely Cowboy) Good Old War makes some of the catchiest folk love tunes you will hear.

What I love about the album 'Only Way to Be Alone' is that it really doesn't follow any particular trend.

From the ashes of Days Away and Unlikely Cowboy comes the band Good Old War. At first this sounds like terrible news seeing how Days Away and Unlikely Cowboy were both great acts. But actually it is the exact opposite. Formed of Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold (Days Away) and Dan Schwartz(Unlikely Cowboy) Good Old War makes some of the catchiest folk love tunes you will hear. From start to finish this album is 100% solid. If harmonies and melodies are your kind of thing then I suggest you pick this up. It's not everyday that you can find three beings that are able to harmonize in perfect unison like Good Old War. From tracks like "Weak Man" which features Anthony Green(Circa Survive)and Dave Davison(Maps and Atlases) to "Stay By My Side" which features the Wadsworth Sisters, there is something for everyone. Tracking in at thirty six minutes long "The Only Way To Be Alone" has moments that will stick with everyone for a long time. I'm not sure I have bonded with a record like this for some time. For fans of bands like Fleet Foxes I recommend you pick this up now.

When Days Away disbanded, many people worried that Keith Goodwin's new adventure wouldn't live up to the great work done while with his rock outfit.

It is now safe to say: Good Old War is the real deal.

One review that sticks in my mind stated that this album could have been released in any of the last five decades and would still make an impact. Quite honestly, that review could not have rung any more true. Good Old War's approach of mixing catchy vocal harmonies and hooking guitar parts makes this album perfect for anytime you want to sit back and enjoy something refreshingly original.

For those wondering, the band is also just as good live.

If I could rate this album any higher then five stars, I would.

while browsing through some bands and artists one day, i came across this album. i'd heard of good old war a bit before, but never had given them a listen. i listened to the preview of "tell me", and though it can be an unwise decision in many cases, i clicked "buy album" immediately because i completely fell in love with that short, little 30 seconds that i heard of them. that was pretty much the best decision of my life, because the album as a whole is stunning. there is not a song that i don't love, and i consider it quite an accomplishment to write an album that is brilliant track after track. the instrumentation is creative, the harmonies are spot-on and gorgeous, and the lyrics are really very relevant. if you're hesitating to buy this album, just get it. now. and then go buy their new self-titled album, cause that's amazing as well. =]

What I love about the album 'Only Way to Be Alone' is that it really doesn't follow any particular trend. If I didn't know better I'd think their music came from my Dad's old 8-track collection. With their indie-folk throwback sound, Good Old War prove that it doesn't matter what genre you play - good music is simply just good music.

Very cool band, this is the first I've heard of them. Bought it on a whim and now I can't wait for their next albums!

I heard "That's What's Wrong" as bumper music in a podcast? I wanted to know Who is this audio lovechild between Simon and Garfunkel and CSN?
I can't believe that I've missed years listening to GOW! Every song on this album is a winner, charming, quirky, and a gem. I responded very much the same way as I did to Mike Daughty's "Haughty Melodic" that is, smiling all the way through.

Only Way to Be Alone has been in constant rotation for me since it's release in the Fall of 2008. The folk trio has something that is hard to come by in mainstream music these days: soul. The harmonies are beautiful; the guitar playing is sick (check out Window...), and the percussion (I'm a drummer, so I paid attention) really adds to the depth of the songs. Tim knows what he's doing with those brushes!

Do yourself a favor and check out this release. I hope it connects with you like it did with me.

Choice cuts: Well...everything. But for starters, Just Another Day, Looking For Shelter, and I'm Not For You.

Enjoy!
