The songs on this album work together (sometimes roughly, sometimes smoothly) as sketches and vignettes to form an overall artistically thematic picture of the world in which we live. The brothers paint this picture so starkly with gritty hyper-realism that the songs will not and do not appeal to the greater audience of folk music that is still deriving its voice from the love songs of Simon and Garfunkel and Jackson Browne.

markkMay 24, 2008This is flat out the best album released thus far this year. only boo! by was not was comes close. forget all the references to dylan and the band. they are true. these are minstrels first and musicians second. they make phenomenal music and are a refreshing treat to the ears. critics ....quit being so snarky!!… Expand
stevensJun 11, 2008Comes off best in live environment, but these witty, literate, whiskey soaked, gritty brothers have, in spades, the real deal magic.
titamMay 25, 2008Well, even the voice tries to be dylan... they managed to copy the sound, but not the magic. Sorry.
