    97's return with a classic. This is up there with fight songs and satellite rides.

    Blame it on Gravity shows the Texan Alt-Rockers Old 97's at their absolute best. After the disappointing punch of Drag it Up, the 97's have found their sound again, returning to the days of Satellite Rides and Too Far to Care. Perhaps their finest album, Blame it on Gravity is certainly energetic, and contains many of the band's best songs.

  1. The Old 97's sound youthful and newly energized, having returned to Dallas and relocated that beloved crossroads between twangy country rock and tight, economic power pop.
  2. Feminist complaints aside, the problem with this seventh LP is that the Old 97's suffer from being too comfortable.
  3. Comfortable and confident all the way through, and a highly welcomed return.
