    Cooder’s production is fittingly raw, putting no phony gloss on these songs brimming with heart-on-sleeve honesty.

    It's the Haden Triplets and their untouched yet effortless harmonies, the kind that can only be derived via the preternatural harmonic instinct shared by siblings, that provide all of the chills (the good, non-flu kind).

    The album’s center of gravity, always, is the Hadens’ vocal blend, which isn’t seamless or airless but rather a series of alert, intuitive micro-negotiations in the realm of intonation and timbre. At times you notice how much is actually happening, moment to moment, in that blend.

    Each note has a purpose, and every musician playing or singing is doing a magnificent job bringing it to life.

    After a while this velvet-lined blast from the past gets a little dry, but the Hadens bring a new audience to these cultural touchstones.

    Overall the Haden Triplets don’t bring enough of anything special to these songs to make the album an overall success.
