The first cd starts with a dark, foreboding song from one of my favorites, Strawfoot, which sets an ominous tone for the rest of the CD.
Some of the other standout tracks for me were Adelita by O' Death, Plague of Frogs by Creech Holler, Graveyard Polka by Damn Laser Vampires and Dark Horse by Tarantella.
Really, there's not a bad song on the track, from Reverend Glasseye and the Monads to the Scarring Party and Walter Sickert.
I mean, really. All the heavy hitters of this burgeoning scene are here.
If you aren't already a devoted apostle of the goth-am sound, this is the perfect primer for you, and if you are a fan, this is the most definitive piece you could ever hope to add to your collection.
It isn't difficult to understand why music fans are harkening back to a period of music that was well before their time, trying to realize its birth and the years that followed, as well as embrace the new bands and singer/songwriters who have carried on where the old masters left off. Dark Roots, or Gothic Americana as some call it, is a genre that I intend to follow for a long time to come.

Of course, since Amazon doesn't allow direct links from unauthorized outside sources, just read between the lines and you can make it work.
