    Dead Confederate has a strange sound going for them. I can see the comparisons between Nirvana and My Morning Jacket. They aren't the best band and this definitely isn't the best album I've ever heard, but it's dark lyrics and eerie atmosphere make up for some of it's flaws.

  1. As a debut album, however, Wrecking Ball is a hit-or-miss effort that only hints at the band's potential.
  2. 70
    The Georgia quintet's debut may appeal to My Morning Jacket fans, but songs like 'Heavy Petting' and 'Start Me Laughing' (which recalls Kurt Cobain at his nastiest) possess more growl than that comparison implies.
  3. A well-put-together debut album.
