5.0 out of 5 stars Nuevo Honky Tonk, January 5, 2006
This review is from: The Virginian (Audio CD)
Quite possibly the best album every made. I write this 'review' in response (or retort, rather) to the opening line of the amazon.com official review, which starts with, "what Neko lacks..." - HORRIBLE! Allow me to retort. Miss Neko lacks nothing (except a husband last I checked and she can call me if she is reading this). Simply the greatest nuevo honky tonk voice on the planet. This debut album (yeah, it's still called an 'album' even if you buy it on CD) is and always will be, in my humble opinion, a classic slab of the meanest, most sincere and well played music you will find. Words lack the power to convey my love of this women's (WOMEN, not little girl with a record contract) voice. I prefer this freshmen release on Mint Records (the equally talentuous Carolyn Mark's homebase) over later albums precisely for the ubertwang feel. I will not give you a song by song kitchy Rolling Stone styled review, I don't do that and I don't like people that do. Listen to the entire album, that is what records like this were made for. I love the mando and peddlesteel playing, and the album is recorded in an anachronistic, open and airy style - NOT like cheap imitation, polished records which don't hold a candle. I could go on - just get it and listen repeatedly.
