This disc is miraculous. It demonstrates unquestionably that the blues can be a vibrant, living musical form. The guitar licks and the song forms are each unique, with none of the common tactic of putting new words to essentially old music. The musicianship is good, but straightforward. The lyrics are simple but clever. Also, and most importantly, the lyrics (for the most part) convey a powerful message and the songs are sung with heartfelt emotion. There are a couple of fun romps (Fried Potatos and Persimmon Song), but in the main the songs bemoan the state of the world (sometimes with humor, as in Your Cousins on Cops) and our place in it. It's a rare disc that is moving, fun, and set to a pulse-pounding beat and slide guitar. For my taste, too many modern blues albums unimaginatively redo songs written decades ago. Some of those albums are good, but this disc takes the blues sentiment and thoughtfully and creatively applies it to our post-modern, post common sense life accompanied with music that is great to hear. My favorite songs are Everybody's Getting Paid But Me, John Hughes, Worn Out Shoe, and Your Cousins on Cops. Don't hesitate to buy this disc.

I love the big and brilliant sound these guys make. Their music always gets me moving. I ordered the vinyl and it is an absolutely gorgeous shade of green with flecks of other color mixed in. This is another highly prized record in my collection. The only thing that would have made this purchase better is AutoRIP

The Reverand and his crew are different, and they are fun. Certainly nothing to relax by. A few selections on this album are very socially issue conscious.
Like "Can't Pay the Bill",a working man's plea for good health because he has to work to pay the bills, and can't afford medical expenses.
I will say, given the steady heavy rhythms,a little bit of The Reverend and his Big Damn Band go a long way.

Some of the tracks have overused riffs, but on the whole it's great chunk of art.
