Editorial Reviews

ATO records is proud to announce the release of Women & Work, the new studio album from Memphis rockers Lucero. Recorded at the historic Ardent Studios in Memphis, Women & Work was produced and mixed by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly) and shows an impressive step forward in both songwriting and development of the band s signature Memphis rock and soul sound. Frontman ben Nichols says, This record is Lucero doing what we do best. It s one part barrelhouse Rock & Roll and one part lonesome nights. The thing is, we are having more fun than ever playing both on stage and off and I think that shows on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucero - Women & Work March 17, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Lucero's latest release, Women & Work, picks up where there last release - 1372 Overton Park - left off. The horns and piano continue to give Lucero a dimension that their earlier releases didn't have. The songs are strong, fun, southern and I can't wait to see them performed live (come to Charlotte NC again soon, guys).

As you expect from Lucero, the ghosts of the woman/women that have brushed off Ben Nichols in the past and those he had to work really hard to coax are well represented (Juniper, come here). Sorry you had to go through that Ben; but, man, it makes for some great songs. There are also a couple of songs with more reflective themes ("Sometimes", "When I Was Young").

One other thing ... I noticed a little less gravel in Ben's vocals in several spots - to me, growth in his approach. Don't mistake, there is still plenty here and I always love it. Just less than usual.

This is a great album by one of my favorite bands. I'll probably spend several nights this Summer in my yard with a cold drink just listening. Great stuff. Thanks guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a love letter to Memphis March 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
In addition to their signature guitar riff and the blue-collar-poetic lyrics, one of the great pleasures of listening to each Lucero album is the genre irreverent layering of instruments and an evolving sound that captures a group of musicians becoming more and more themselves.

On their website, Lucero describes Women and Work as a love song to Memphis, and Nichols is quoted as saying, "You work all week, thinking about women and the weekend...'Downtown' is Friday night, `Go Easy' is Sunday morning. The rest of the record is the party in between."

However, it seems to me that Lucero's Memphis-much like Joyce's Dublin- is a metaphorical place we all have access to no matter our location.

It's a place where the fairy tale veneer has all rubbed off. Where lovers are friends, and you're always taking a chance. It's a place where desire doesn't demand perfection and the heroine of the story is "...a superhero down on her luck [who] drinks like a sailor at the bottom of the sea, but she sings like a siren in the belly of the beast."

It's a place where we don't have to hide the worn out and failed pieces of our hearts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album not my favorite March 14, 2012
By NathanC
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Lucero for a few years now, by fan I mean I own and love their complete catalog. I really enjoyed the progression each album has taken into developing their sound. I enjoyed Overton Park, and was anxious to see what the next step was sound wise. I have to say I'm kinda meh about the album, musically it's great but is didn't strike me the way the bands other albums have. I was hoping to hear the next logical step with their sound, but this album makes me feel like they just slowed down Overton Park songs. They writing and the over all compositions are fantastic but just not what I was expecting
Bottom line, pick this up if you're a fan but if you are looking to "get into" the band, start with either Nobody's Darling or Rebels, Rouges, & Sworn Brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album March 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a huge Lucero fan for probly 6-7 years now and this new album is great. It's sort of a continuation of their style from 1372 Overton Park, bringing in more soul influences than the gritty country that made up albums like Tennessee and Rogues Rebels and Sworn Brothers. They've still got Ben signing about women and whiskey and while this may not be the best album by Lucero, it standing by itself is a great listen and a perfect album to listen to as the snow thaws and leads into spring and summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally August 21, 2013
By Jamie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really was not a fan of Overton Park...and I love Lucero. This album has more upbeat tempos than the last album. It reminded me of "Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers," but with more complexity.

2.0 out of 5 stars ehhh.. July 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Wow, what a great band. Grab you an ice cold one, turn the lights down low and play every album because, Ben Nichols and Lucero knows exactly what you're going through...but when you get to this album on your playlist, just hop out of your barstool and skip forward because no song on this latest album is going to touch you and feel you like the rest. Songs that grabs you, songs that feels you, songs that shakes your core with powerful lyrics and mellowing guitar riffs- this is the lucero I know. That is the lucero that responsible for the underground cult following that so many of us are apart of. But this album? Hipsters are ruining the band. Further proof can be found on the "women & work" music video. What the hell was that? Roller blading in the woods while destroying a van and dumping it in a lake? I don't get it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Having discovered Lucero only 18 mos ago, August 14, 2012
By hkens
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm late to Lucero, as the band was recommended to me only about 18 mos ago. But I quickly became obsessed, blasting Lucero about 90% of the time. Ben Nichols is an incredible lyricist with a once-in a-lifetime voice. And that is not bullshit. But Women & Work was a letdown. I'm not going to review each track, as has been so eloquently done by other reviewers. And I fully understand that Ben might have felt that a change in direction was necessary for financial reasons(see Dreaming in America DVD). But I think I speak for a lot of Lucero fans- Lucero is at their best as a screaming, ragged, guitar based band with a solid bass/drums and one of the greatest singer/songwriters in the history of the world. And I will continue to buy all their shit(including the T-shirt my son sent me that can be worn only to concerts) because I know they need the money. Ken
