Over the last several weeks, I've been finding a lot of really great new music...some from artists new to me, some from artists that, I've been listening to for years. This album falls into the first category. This afternoon, I read a post from the Drive-By Truckers', Patterson Hood declaring the greatness of this brand new disk. I read the article and immediately went about looking for this one to see what all of the hub-ub was about.
From the opening chords of "The Company Man" to the closing crash of feedback in "Dirt Track", Dereconstructed exceeded all expectations. This may be the greatest testament to the Southern man, since the Drive-By Truckers' "Southern Rock Opera", released 13 years ago, mixing a healthy dose of 70's-style Southern Rock, with a healthy dose of ferocious punk rock delivery . BUY IT...You won't be disappointed!!!
