    16 Horsepower is simply amazing; David Eugene Edward's vocal abilities are hauntingly projected, just as the music behind his voice, creates an ambiance that has to be heard to be understood. Listen and you shall enjoy.

    Folklore sets a standard few albums have matched since. David Eugene Edwards and the band put more soul and feeling Into the music than we have a right to hear. The album leaves you feeling like you just stepped out of a old western and truly is a work of art. David comes from a long history of playing and this album represents some of his best work.

  1. Would most likely appeal to everyone from fans of Will Oldham and Palace Music to everyone who bought the recent Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack and wanted to branch out a bit into some slightly (but still thematically similar) territory.
  2. Revealing itself slowly, like the mythic tales acknowledged by the album's title, Folklore is certainly Sixteen Horsepower's most stunning and accomplished work yet, and an easy nominee for one of 2002's best.
  3. The album marks the high point of an amazing band's amazing career.
