I loved their last cd so much that when I heard that they had a new cd I picked it up straight away. This one is easily as great as the last one and there can be no doubt that these guys are the real deal! They are truly one of the handful of the best bands going right now. This cd is cleaner and more straightforward bluegrass than the last one so if you have not already fallen in love with these guys and are not sure if you like bluegrass or not you might want to start with the last one because it will make a fan of anyone who loves music. If you like bluegrass or already ara a fan buckle your seat belt and keep your hands within the car at all times during the ride. Check out 'Statesboro Blues' and how to cover a song and truly transform it. 'Johnson Family' has this european lilt to break up the bluegrass sound and is stupendous. As it always seems to be with these guys there isn't a bad song on the whole cd. You can not go wrong pickin' up this one.

I first saw these guys in Santa Cruz in 2004 when they were the talk of the town, and I've been enjoying their albums and live shows ever since. "Do Wrong Right" is the album I'd always knew they could make. Although the songwriting was never a weak suit for DM3, this album takes it to another level. Virtually every song on here as as good or better than anything that's come before. They may have set aside some of the overt "punk" edge in the music, but the storytelling hasn't lost its bite. "Car Crash," a reflective, mournful country ballad, cuts particularly deep and is an instant classic.

The recording takes full advantage of their record label's backing. The band seamlessly blends in three-part harmony, slide guitar, a little electric, and some hot pedal steel. This is an old-time country record, through and through, packed with melody and musicianship. When I get to the end, I start it over again. Listen to the samples, and if you like what you hear, you'll love this band. Highly recommended for fans of any kind of music.

This band is addictive.

They're not preservationist old-time, but they have everything that makes old-time and jug-band music so appealing: Melody, rhythm, and attitude. The lyrics are mainly modern but they don't clash with the music.

TDMT also don't sound as "schtick-y" as many heavily OT-inspired bands. They don't sing in fake drawls, they aren't deliberately shrill, they aren't patronizing. Their cover of "Statesboro Blues" is their own but is respectful of earlier versions.

I've gone to every live performance of Devil Makes Three I could get to in the last 9 months so I've gotten to hear many of these songs performed live. But hearing them recorded with added touches like fiddle, harmonica and the new bluegrass instrument, cello makes these familiar songs all new and exciting. The good time songs are there plus social commentary and autobiographical depth. Their energy, originality and unique variety of songs and music led me to buy all the DM3 CDs and this one just shows how amazing the overall CD is with each member contributing musically and vocally. Buy the music, see the shows, you'll be hooked.

I'd heard about these guys for a long time but had never given them a deep listen before. I got this one to learn the title track, after hearing all the snippets and gauging it would be an overall keeper. Then by random, I listened to the last track, "Car Wreck," all the way through, first off. Holy cow. Talk about a classic tearjerker done right. Pete Bernhard is a modern day Bob Dylan of a lyricist, and he sings this one with a subtlety that lets the listener make what he wants of it without forcing anything, which IMHO tends to give more of an impact in the end. The whole album plays through easily and vibes with just the right ebb and flow to allow each song its own space and give a sense of taking you on a ride with them. Absolutely brilliant.

its been a while since i was sucked into a band.. and I am pleased to admit it has happened.
Devil Makes Three has a unique sound, to be sure; but the lyrics never seem to shy away from making the listener think a bit while they tap their foot… Since this album i have bought 2 more and have NOT been disappointed!! I dare you to have a cruddy attitude while listening to this band.
