buy this CD and you'll achieve maximum sonic sweetness.
also, see the band live if you get the chance. they bring a bunch of extra rock to the songs when they play 'em live.
The album begins with a soul-wrenching slide guitar refrain that melts into some of the most heartfelt, raspy vocals in this universe. Then the power rises. Without losing an ounce of passion, the volume cranks, the voice strains with a gripping urgency, the guitars roar...and back we move to the soft slap in the face, the tug that migrates with an intimate ease from primal heartbeat to the zipper on your pants--and that's just the first song!
Will Johnson's voice was custom-made to rip your still happily beating heart right out of your chest cavity, while you nod your head to the compelling rhythms, and think to yourself that this is just about the most meaningful damn experience you've ever had. It has that dark, sad, smoky quality that recalls every night you've ever sat alone in a bar after last call, listening to the band play the tearjerk ballad that precedes the closing curtain-call rocker--and hearing nothing but the devastating sound of your own loneliness.
The songs ring like myths of the maligned romantic anti-hero. The good guy may not win, but damned if he's not gonna offer you the chance to submerge every fiber of your being into the boiling cauldron of his pain. And you'll think you're having a good time, too. These are tales of the twisted lovelorn--those who find themselves locked in alternate realities where good and evil meld as the best of friends.Read more ›
