Editorial Reviews

It's been a decade since Jason Boland and the Stragglers got together to form their outlaw band. Now considered the stalwart leaders in the red dirt movement, the band has been making its case in each of its 200 shows a year, and on each of its records. Whether it's called Texas, Country, Americana, or Red Dirt, everyone can agree that Jason Boland is rightfully at the top of the movement with his uncompromising attitude toward the music he and his fans love. Jason Boland and the Stragglers prove that point again, showing listeners what it's all about in their release Comal County Blues.

For some artists, an early album might make a promise that later albums cannot deliver. This is not the case with Jason Boland and the Stragglers. This is worth owning in itself, but if you listen to the songwriting talent and the pure blend of instruments and voice, you get a good introduction to what this group had to offer. A worthy addition to the library of anyone who relishes what true country music is, and what it was before Nashville homogenized it.

This cd is one in my collection of Jason Boland that is in my mp3 player and on all my computers because it's just that good. I have been hooked on this artist since "Some Where In The Middle" came out. they have the old country sound mixed with a hint of a rock influence.

This album is really, really good. It is much better than The Bourban Legend. Jason and the band get back to the type of songs and beat that made them one of the best artists in Texas music. A really great album!

Jason Boland and The Stragglers have played gigs near my hometown ... my husband's high school students just love him and his music.

I liked the songs from his 2006 CD, "Bourbon Legend" for their originality and for their Merle Haggard-flavor, but the CD didn't spend much time in rotation during my 30-minute commute to and from work.

All that has changed.

"Comal County Blue" is stunning. For about two weeks, I've listened to it in the car and on my iPod and I'm still hearing something new with each play through.

The title cut will probably get the most attention, but "Alright," "Sons and Daughters of Dixie" and the sweet ballad "May Not Be Love" deserve some air time on the radio.

Boland's band, The Stragglers, really step it up on "Outlaw Band." It's rock with a grown-up feel.

The songs deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, booze, battling demons and the war in Iraq. There's a maturity to the lyrics. This is not a no home-grown, loosely-produced record. It's the real deal. This may be what breaks Boland into the big time.

Enjoy!

One reviewer said that this was more mellow than some of his other stuff, yea maybe. I call it more mature and focused. An artist can't keep making the same album over and over. This is easily his best album. Jason Boland is growing as an artist and he is severely unrecognized for his talent. He wrote or co-wrote most all these songs. That is very important to me in liking an artist. These songs are among best he has ever written. The sound quality is exceptional. Don't waste your time with mp3 download, get the CD and crank it up!

You have to hand it to the State of Texas. They are successfully and single handedly keeping tradition in its country music. Yes now and then some of the artists pay omage to a southern rock style by complimenting great lyrics with a guitar and drum heavy. That is a refreshing throw back to the great southern rock bands of the 70's and into the 80's. But for the most part, this cd contains what I think is essential to the history as well as the future of country music. It has a very traditional feel and flavor to it, but not without the ability to bring in new fans as well that hear them. I wish the Nashville scene would wake up and realize that it is okay for music to advance and evolve but don't change the core ingredients which made the music great through history and its ability to separate it from any other genre. Jason Boland and the Stragglers have been able to perfect that mix.

Love the CD, simple relaxing music. Good music for a drive or sitting around the campfire. Love the guitar and easiness of the sound.
