"DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS - Decoration Day

dbt

Over on Freight Train Boogie a review of DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS new Decoration Day (New West):

"After totally wearing out their Skynyrd-inspired sound of their earlier albums, the Drive-By Truckers have made a giant artistic leap forward without cutting off their proud Alabama 'balls'. They've got a little more Neil Young in 'em this time, incorporating some wryly-intelligent commentaries on contemporary Southern 'working class and trailer trash' lifestyles. Their ragged, sloppy three-guitar rock songs have been toned down some and they mix in some fine mid-tempo songs and ballads. "

For more on the Drive-By Truckers, see Lynyrd Skynyrd and Neil Young page.
