Format:Audio CD
Don't buy this album if you want great singing. Don't buy this album if you want an easy listen. What you get here is a coherent set of songs from one of America's finest songwriters. The playing is mostly acoustic, using simple tunes and regular song formats which draw the listener to focus on the lyrics. These are sometimes passionate but more often display Germino's dry wit. The lyrics challenge various assumptions about life and leave the listener to re-evaluate some old habits. Listen to "Fire In The Land Of Grace" and think about how we treat celebrities, alive and dead. If this world was a fair place, Mark Germino would be rich and famous. But then he might not be the same man he is now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unknown Gem!! April 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled into this CD by mere chance! I have ca.900 CD's, but this is the one I play the most just now. My friends, all hard veterans when it comes to music, envy me "Rank and File". How on earth is Mark Germino unknown to the musical world? His voice has a raw,real sound, which can NOT be said of 99% of the singers today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rank & File is as good as alt-country gets! March 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Mark Germino is so under-rated it hurts. This CD is as fine a collection of stripped-down roots-rock as I've heard. I have all of his CD's and this one is one of his finest. It's more intimate than his others, and yet each song is as powerful and emotional as any rock tune. "Felix Tucker's Biggest Lie" could be made into a movie. "Black Angel Cure" is powerful. "Drivin' Across America" sounds like a bonified alt-country hit to me. Why are artists like Mark Germino ignored? Maybe because his songs contain the unpainted truth! Buy this CD. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Don't buy one copy... buy two. August 7, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This 4th release from Mark Germino is "acoustic", but don't let that fool you. It's heavy handed, pointed, and cuts to the bone with insight and lyrical genious that only M.G. can pull off. Because Mark Germino is so overtly ignored in popular music, his records never stay available for long. So, do what I do. Don't buy one copy, buy two... and shelf it for the next generation in your family. He's Amazing.
