    Wreck & Ruin sounds fresh as the dew and old as the hills all at once, and anyone who doubts that Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson are two of the finest natural talents in country and folk music today need only listen to this to be convinced.

    Short but potent and powerful set.

    One outright dud of a song and a handful of lazily written lines don't outweigh all that Chambers and Nicholson get right on Wreck & Ruin, an album that tempers its genuine, heartfelt romance with the darkest comedy.

    The two make beautiful music together, country style. While it may seem strange that acoustic American styles have rooted in such a distant place, the flower is as sweet as any ever produced in the USA.

    Recorded in the far reaches of the Australian Outback, it reflects those dusty environs in its stripped-down arrangements and traditional tomes.
