    Their strongest collection by far.
  2. Come Back As Rain is a pleasant...not a surprise, but reaffirmation...that Good Old War is one of the most talented bands around at this point in time.

    Come Back as Rain may be the perfect summer soundtrack for listeners looking for a less cerebral Band of Horses, a more ecumenical Fleet Foxes, or just a damn fine group of musicians with a knack for kicking out youthful, country-tinged pop songs without an agenda.

    With this impressive album of wonderfully melodic music, the band joins the growing ranks of harmony-based folk-rock outfits like the Fleet Foxes and the Civil Wars.

    The Good Old War (whose name comes from each of its members' last names) have certainly improved their banjo and mandolin-driven sound on this album, and the current musical landscape is the perfect place for it.

    What this trio from Philadelphia, PA are offering, in spite of their rough-hewn hipster image, is nothing new and can be traced back to Barenaked Ladies through Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills & Nash and even the Kingston Trio.

    It's catchy fluff, yes, but fluff nonetheless.

    Third album "Come Back as Rain" of the Good Old War group consists eleven carefree compositions maintained in summer climates. Songs catch some Band Of Horses' indie rock energy , combine it this with Fleet Foxes' folk melodies, tinge it with a country style colorsa and publish in a very reasonable offer. Expand
