Review: Americana music is one of the fastest growing genres today, and that's due in no small part to the amazing music being generated by artists like Jangling Sparrows. Their music is upbeat and fun, with great songwriting and lyrics, and plenty of that good old down home musical sound of guitars, fiddle, steel and soaring vocals that truly capture the Americana sound. Paul Edelman has outdone himself with his lead vocals, coupled with amazing harmonies. You can also hear the zydeco influence throughout the album. We think this is one of the best Americana bands we have heard this year, and would love to see their live performance. Our favorite tracks include "The Party Ain't Over," "Burnin' a Hole," "One Good Piece of Advice," "Great American Limbo," and "Cheaper Down the Road."
Recommendation: This one is a no-brainer. You NEED this one in your musical library, so run out and Get it. Now.
