Review this album
Feb 28, 2011To my mind, this album rates just a notch below their finest, Decoration Day and Dirty South. I think that at this stage, the slower paced country and/or blues tinged numbers suit them best, where you can really make out how well they play off one other instrumentally. also, I think Shonna Tucker's singing has improved, and they are beginning to sort out what works best with her in the band. Both of her contributions here are strong. Cooley's country songs on this album have a kind of wistful energy, and his usual great phrase turning shows up on "Cartoon Gold" and "The Weakest Man". And Patterson has his slow burn going throughout the album, from the "murder ballads" to tales of desperation. But he also lets loose on some really great soulful numbers, including the album closer, which has a great Stones in the early 70s feel to it.… Expand
Sep 29, 2011This is actually my favorite album ever by them. I have been a diehard DBTs fan for about 10 years and seen them more times than I can count over the years as well. That being said I feel this is Patterson's finest hour lyrically and how his voice sounds on many of the songs such as Mercy Buckets, Used To Be a Cop and Everybody Needs Love. I have always been a Cooley guy over the years and still am overall. I feel his contributions are very solid due to the fact they are all three mellow and more country sounding. It is good the two lead vocalists are even throughout this album. It is an absolute crime shrimp is too much of a poser music fan to like these guys.… Expand
Feb 16, 2012A real change of pace album for DBT. I was worried at first but after sitting down and really digging into the album I found myself really enjoying Go-Go Boots. It's a refreshing change of pace that I enjoyed and to me it sounds like DBT really enjoyed making the album. A must buy for DBT fans.
