5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album, April 14, 2012
This review is from: The Outlaws (Audio CD)
The Outlaws first album is not necessarily where they peaked, but it is their consistently best record. Released in 1975, the album fits in well with the times; high energy, guitar charged, bluesy, countrified music was rampant during this era. Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Marshall Tucker Band had both adhered to a similar formula a few years prior, and met with more than modest success.

So what separates The Outlaws from their peers? I'd say it's their tight Eagles-inspired harmonies and the brevity of the tunes (minus, of course, "Green Grass & High Tides.")

So while the band would produce a few more solid records, this, their first, is their best. The leadoff tune, "There Goes Another Love Song," was a hit for them, as was the albums' closer, the aforementioned "Green Grass." And what's in between is equally good. The guitar interplay on "Song For You" is outstanding. And the harmonies on "Song In The Breeze" is quite pretty.

Overall, a very solid addition to the southern rock canon.
