4.0 out of 5 stars Brotherly harmonies (ala the Everlys) with a beat June 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There's something special about the vocal harmonies of brothers. Whether it's the Delmores, Louvins, or Mike and Bob Delevante, the common familial root strains wonderfully against the natural fight for an individual voice. This sophomore LP showcases the brotherly bond with harmonies that chase and push, and phrasings that finish each other's thoughts.
The Delevantes' New Jersey origins are strongly flavored by their Nashville residency, shading Springsteen-esque landscapes with an earnest and optimistic light. Producer (and former E-Street bassist) Garry Tallent punches up the band's country-rock, while maintaining the bluesy edge of the music's roots.
The brothers' lyrics pit the comforts of home against the lures of the unknown. Wanderlust, both remorseful and joyous, fill "Suitcase Made of Leather" and "My Daddy's Cadillac," while hope fuels the itinerant search of "This Engine Runs on Faith." Travels along inner roads include the self-realization of "I Know I Promised," and the cherished memories of "Reminds Me of You."
The Delevantes deliver the perfect soundtrack for a summer's roadtrip.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you buy one album this year, you must buy this one! December 8, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Delevantes are an extremely unique act that transcend all musical barriers. Their lyrics cut to the core, yet their voices are almost angelic. The Delevantes hold onto every syllable they sing and refuse to let go of it. Brilliant harmonies highlight excellent songwriting about the working class and growing up in the culture on the East Coast. This is where the similarities to Bruce,etc., are noticable. It's hard to describe the appeal of the Delevantes, only that they are fabulous! Songs like "This Engine Runs On Faith" and "Heart Shaped Locket" have a feel-good urgency to them. They prove they can croon the heartbreaking ballad on "I Know I Promised", a song that will make the hardest heart a little tender. The best song on the album is "Blame It On the Horizon Line", about a young man struggling with the bittersweetness of leaving his home. I would love to see this performed live-I rank it as one of the best overall emotional performances I've ever heard. Closing the album are "Right About Now" and "John Wayne Lives In Hoboken", 2 songs that evoke the satisfaction of living in the present while appreciating the beauty and subtleties of the past. I don't know what else to say other than this is the best album I've heard in a long time. If you like jangly guitars, beautiful harmonies, harmonica, and great songwriting, give this album a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dirt road off the New Jersey Turnpike November 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful record, poorly marketed and unjustly ignored. Good tunes, vivid images and air-tight playing that mixes rock and country.
The brothers know how to take small, human moments and make them big -- a skill mastered by another New Jersey native. The spirit of Mr. Springsteen pokes its head from time to time. But don't worry: These guys can stand on their own and stand tall.
This is one of my favorite records of the last few years.
