AdamG.Aug 6, 2006A completely satisfying feel-good album. I picked up this album because of Gary Louris's work with The Jayhawks, and I was not disappointed. A nice surprise all around. Don't take my word for it - go give it a listen yourself. (Sorry if this review seems so dippy; I just not used to being so blown away by a new album :) ).… Expand
WilliamSApr 29, 2007Dude, these guys are ballers. Dime piece!
R.L.Jul 24, 2006Good stuff all around, but the Tweedy/Louris penned "Long Time Ago" really stands out. Tweedy is starting to look like an eagle amongst turkeys. He needs to fly away and go craft his next Wilco masterwork.… Expand
TimP.Apr 7, 2009Whilst the songs lack the immediate impact of the Jayhawks this remains a quality set of contemporary country rock.
MattD.Jul 21, 2006Has a few great moments in the middle of the CD, and some of the rocking numbers sound good, if not memorable. But the CD is unfocused. It seems like they're trying too hard for each member to get in his individual style. Grade: B-.… Expand
MaryDAug 4, 2006This cd is not nearly as good as their stellar releases "Down by the Old Mainstream" and "Weird Tales." Jeff Tweedy's input is sadly lacking on this release (was he too busy?), and as a result it seems like a Gary Louris' solo effort, and a mediocre one at that. Here's what I would do: remove about half of the less-than-great songs and add a few great Tweedy numbers. Sorry, these guys can do much, much better. Buy the two GS cds mentioned earlier, any Jayhawks cd, or any Wilco cd pre-"Ghost" to experience their true talent.… Expand
