Drive-By Truckers
02/20/09 at 08:39 AM by CellarGhosts


It's a shame that mainstream country music, with its contrived lyrics, overwhelming amount of sameness and faux-Americana pandering has succeeded in turning so many people off of the country music genre, as there is plenty of excellent country music out there. Case in point: Athens, Georgia's Drive-By Truckers. Playing a fresh, interesting brand of alt.country, they've become a staple in the alt.country world. While most people seem to favor the critically-acclaimed Southern Rock Opera, I feel their best moment is The Dirty South. Songs like "Carl Perkins' Cadillac", "The Day John Henry Died" and "Tornadoes" rank among their finest work. Definitely give this band a shot sometime.

"This album should be in your collection if it isn't" - The Replacemen
02/19/09 at 12:24 PM by CellarGhosts


In my opinion, this is just one of the best albums ever recorded. I've always felt that the 'Mats were, and still are, a criminally underrated band. Anyway, I recommend you buy the re-issue of this album that just came out not too long ago. And why not? Get the rest of their albums too! Because I'm lazy, I'll just link you to my review for this album instead of wasting more words here.
