Title - ‘Decoration Day’ (New West)
Artist - Drive-By Truckers
This band had me from the first note I ever heard them play. They're all about the rock show. Decoration Day creates a unique atmosphere a lot like they're southern rock opera album did. The album is solid throughout, no real weak points, it just sounds damn good. If you know this band, you're gonna love this album. If you're not familiar with they're sound yet here's what I can say about it. If all of your Stones, Skynyrd, Allman Bros., Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and AC/DC albums are more of a religion to you than just music then these guys are for you! I'm not saying they necessarily emulate any of these bands, it's more like the apple not falling too far from the tree. Let it rock everyone. Let it rock!
