    This was the 4th best country album of 2013. I am a huge fan of lyrical country and thus Jason Isbell's Southeastern album was very good but there has to be a balance between conceptual depth and musical achievement. This album is the closest thing to time travel we might ever get. This is your grandfather’s father country sound, yet it does not sound out of place on your iPod. “Bull Rider” is the perfect example—ol’ school. “Back when we were beautiful” is simply amazing in every sense of the word. Isbell’s album has better writing, but Old Yellow Moon is better album altogether. The writing on Old Yellow Moon is a B- but the music is A+. 86/100. 2013 will go down in history as the one of the best years in Country Music history. Expand

    The pair bring a gritty stiffness to Tim McGraw's Open Season on My Heart and Harris brings a searing power to Patti Scialfa's Spanish Dancer.

    Unashamedly traditional it may be, but there will be few better country records released this year.

    Modest, low-key, and unassuming, Old Yellow Moon is finally too conventional a record to rank as a major addition to either Harris or Crowell’s discographies.
