Product Description

Their fifth studio album and finest to date; an artistic and commercial step forward for the Memphis band. David Lowery's production brings sharpness and focus to Lucero's sound and "I Can Get Us Out Of Here" is the legitimate radio single that the band has always hinted at. Legendary Memphis session player and recent Cat Power sideman Rick Steff contributes piano and organ throughout, adding a shimmering sonic wrapping to Lucero's hardest rocking and most tuneful album to date. The lead track evokes the spirit of vintage Springsteen while another recalls Wilco's Summerteeth-era into power pop and vintage synthesizers. Other tracks showcase singer Ben Nichols' southern gothic fatalism. It's the single however, that pulls all these elements together into a catchy, visceral rock song.

Torn and frayed, the voice of Lucero singer Ben Nichols epitomizes a band that spends half it's time on the highway driving to the next gig. But judging by the fun the Memphis four-piece appears to be having on its fifth album, that road may go on forever. Produced by David Lowry (Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker), the record draws a parallel with its 2005 release Nobody's Darlings, meshing elements of English blues, Southern swamp rock and Bowery Street punk rock-all led by the crashing, thrashing twin guitars of Nichols and the venerable Brian Venable. While songwriter Nichols' can transform Mick Jagger-like between gentle ballads ("She Wakes When She Dreams"), moody love overtures ("The Weight of the Guilt") and straightforward pop songs ("She's Just That Kinda Girl"), his mettle (and the band's) is uncovered in rockers like "I Don't Want To Be the One" and "Sing Me No Hymns." --Scott Holter

...pour me a tall glass of whiskey and let's have some fun rock n rollers. Lucero plays it on this album. It's a tasteful product all the way around from the album title, cover, art, pictures, song titles, song choruses, lyrics, guitar licks, lead licks right where you need 'em, f***in' lyrics again, f***in' cymbals with base and guts with f***in'...f***in'...vocals and drums! And 1, 2,3,4's! Let's pull out the fine china and f***in dance on it.

This band just keeps putting out better & better material. My favorite album is Tennessee, but this is as good... if not better. In a time of fall out boy (crap in my opinion) being played on radio, its a shame you dont hear these guys. Do yourself a favor (and the band too!) when they come to your city, go and support them.

Where Springsteen, The Replacements, Skynyrd and The Ramones smash into each other on a whiskey and sweat soaked bar stage, you'll find Lucero's new tunes. Pure visceral power, the fieriest emotions, the drunkest, loneliest nights. If any of that appeals to you, this CD is for you. I think it's their best record, rivaled only by That Much Further West. "What Else Would You Have Me Be" is one of my favorite songs in years. Lucero makes me feel like that 13 year old kid discovering Guns n' Roses and learning to love music for the first time. They are essential. This record rocks my eardrums. Humans who wish to treat their listening organs nicely will purchase this disc and support the hardest working band in America.

Reminds me a bit of Uncle Tupelo with the rough vocals and country-rock. Great songs!

I only recently picked up on this band, friend of mine was into Wilco and Uncle Tupelo and I was into The Replacements and Buffalo Tom and The Black Crowes and somehow we ended up finding Lucero.

smoky, raspy, whiskey-tongued and just about perfect. If emotion, passion and grace matter in your music you just might want to pick them up.

And why hasn't anyone drawn comparisons to The Pogues? I swear I hear Shane MacGowan on "On The Way Back Home".

These guys are really nothing short of remarkable.

This CD is awesome. There is not a finer example of a Lucero album than this. The record quality is excellent, the songs are amazing, and if you're a fan and you don't already own this album, you should! Add this to the collective awesomeness that is Lucero and enjoy!
