And although there might be inevitable comparisons to Amanda Marshal, and Melissa Ethridge vocally, (I don't think that is a bad thing anyway) the band has an old fashioned fullness of sound that is mostly lacking in today's music, and some very tight harmonies.
Classifying their genre is more complicated than some of the reviewers and critics have made it. The only thing that seems really Country about their sound is the lack of electric instruments, and personally I don't think acoustics actually equals Country. But that leaves the other side of the coin, without electric guitars predominating is it Rock & Roll? I don't know. I'll leave such battles to the kind of purist that said if George Benson sings it isn't Jazz.
What I do know is, I like this album very much, that many of the songs found me trying to sing along by the second playing, that I started calling friends about it after the first playing. If you like the sound of acoustics, if you like well written songs, if you like good harmonies, you ought to enjoy this album very much.
Understand I am a fan of girl rock - if you don't like girls who sing in your rock music, they might not be for you. Every song on this CD is listenable, and I've yet to find one that's not - a rarity in today's market, where I find that most CDs have 2-3 good songs and the rest is filler.
They've got a tight sound, they've got a fun feel, and they've got it together - I truly, highly recommend!
Buy both...highly recommended!
I am also a 64-year audiophile with an awesome Marantz, Acoustic Research vintage system.
I love all the heart-rending and moody song lyrics, the powerful singing, the awesome instrument playing. The lead singer, Cassidy, is a powerhouse poet with nuclear chops. Like many of the other reviewers, I think neither the rest of the band nor Cassidy have been as good since they separated.
Neither her solo album, Boheme or their other album, Red, are nearly as addictive!
First song jams brilliantly instrumentally for the first 1:45!!
This is as good as Feist, any Lilith Fair performer.
The sound is holographic Demo quality!! Almost as good as some of my better SACD's.
Can't lose with this CD!!
