Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Wilders break new ground with their most ambitious studio recording to date, Someone's Got To Pay. The album takes the story of a real-life murder trial and interweaves it with original country, old-time, and Americana songs about small town crazies and wrecked lives. Many of the tracks are reminiscent of the band's powerful live performances. But there is also remarkably introspective material. Clearly, The Wilders have matured as a band, and on this CD they have set a new creative milestone. The subject matter may be dark, but don't let that fool you. The Wilders just got wilder, and the music is more engaging then ever. Co-produced by Dirk Powell (Balfa Toujours) and Brendan Moreland (Rex Hobart & The Misery Boys).

Review

A group whose music captures the very essence of rural America. --Rob Adams, The Herald (Scotland)

This is the smartest thing the Wilders have ever done.

This is my first listen, the `get the feel of the thing' review.

First, it's an `album' not a `recording'. This is a big, great difference.

Previous recordings (for the most part) have been the Wilders playing their songs/tunes. They were good. In their line of work, people come to the shows...love it...and buy a cd. They take it home, and though it's good, it has no chance of capturing the Wilders live show. It would be impossible.

This thing is a whole new deal. This is an ALBUM. This thing is alive on its own. It's not an attempt to send a fan home with a piece of the live show. BUT, anybody who loved the show won't be disappointed with this album. It is all Wilders and has an energy/intensity that you get at the live show...without being a recording of the show...if that makes any sense.

This opens the Wilders up to all new markets. If this hasn't been sent to XM Radio station #12...do it now!!! This album will appeal to a much larger audience than previous recordings. They just have to figure out how to get it in front of their ears! ALSO, and I feel this is very important, just as the fan who buys a copy at a show won't be disappointed, the person who hears this thing before seeing you live will love it when they do get around to seeing a show. This is very good.

Recap: Fans of the live show will love the cd ... and fans of the cd will love the live show! What else could you ask for? It's all different, but all Wilders.

You get a little bit of everybody on this thing:

Betse's fiddling is HOT and I really like her singing on this one a lot.
Phil gives us his `Red Headed Stranger' - awesome.

Wilders had a few soothing CDs of new folk traditional. Well sung, played, and wallowed in the nicely done, but...not bought.

"Someone's Gotta Pay" is a breakthrough. A song cycle of murder/passion/mistakes/life taken/life done. A journey of judgment and justice jampacked with Americana mysteries and melodies.

Whirlwind bluegrass, deep blues, and a venture into places where only the heartbroken delve. This is like chain gang hope.

A modern entrance to yesterday as it is today.

This is the best CD the Wilders have done so far! A real studio album, not trying to capture their live energy and a concept album to boot. This CD easily has 3 or 4 singles on it...if only there were any radio stations left that could fit it into their playlists. I highly recommend!
