There are some who have said that because the band was having some inner turmoil among the members at the time the CD was written and recorded that DBT did not put forth a true effort and made a recording that was less than what they could have done. To that I say HUH?????? This CD is wonderful from the heavy opening drum beats of the first tune( Feb 14) until the beautifully written pedal steel and slide guitar of the closer ( World of Hurt). This recording was instantly one of my favorite DBT efforts and this realization came during the first listen. To say these guys and gal didn't put forth their best effort due to inner conflict is just a wrong statement. Yes it is not The Dirty South but it's definitely Drive By Truckers and it's worth every penny and every listen. There is not a bad song on this CD, every song is so enjoyable and intelligent. Mr. Cooley has only two songs on this recording but WOW!!! two incredible songs. Well written and quite witty, as most of Cooley lyrics are he has written two more from the heart "Gravity's Gone": "Don't ever let them tell you that what you want to say is unbecoming, If you're supposed to watch your mouth all the time I doubt your eyes would be above it." and Space City "... and I ain't ashamed of anything my hands ever dis but sometimes the words I used were as hard as my fists" A song that can only be about a man's wife dying and leaving him behind to grieve after many years of marriage and wants to join his beloved " somewhere beyond that great white light". Genius.
Obviously I am a Cooley fan but every song on this CD has something special to offer. Including one of Mr.Isbell's songs "Daylight" in which he reaches higher vocal ranges than he has in the past to make the song quite unique from his other recordings. Another great highlight of the album is Mr. Hood's "Wednesday" which has a great rolling feel to it and is delivered in a very catchy ,likeable arrangement even though the lyrics are dark in nature. In closing the band never missed a step on this album , just the opposite they leaped and bound into songwriting that they had not tried in the past and it worked perfectly.
