By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires are to be located in a proud linage of Southern Rock that stands in the tradition of the Allman Brothers to the Drive by Truckers. There first album "There is a bomb in Gilead" tickled this reviewers fancy not least soul stews like "Opelika" and the gentle alt country of "Roebuck County". Bains new album "De-reconstructed" is an altogether noisier and scuzzy affair somewhat akin to being hit over the head with a pool cue in a bar room fight. Here the bass is way down in the mix and guitars are so ragged that that they could chop wood. First track up "Company Man" takes no prisoners and would rouse the local environmental health department out of its lethargy if played on high volume. If anything the title track is even louder with echoes of the souther R&B of the Black Crowes and demonstrating real fire in the belly of this band. In this uproarious mix the band ponder the troubling question of what is the modern Southern Identity, the dichotomy of magnolia sweetness and meth labs. In songs like the ferocious "Burnpiles, Swimming holes" they come across like a mix of vintage Rolling Stones and the Stooges. When the whole thing slows down and takes a pause at the sixth track "Whats good and gone" its almost a blessed relief to pause for breath although that ignores the brilliant pile driving "The Weed Downtown" which immediately precedes it and is an album standout.

"Flags" is designed to revisit the turbulent hot spots of Southern history not least the journey from the antebellum South to women's clinic bombings. It is a rough and tumble, almost punk rock three minute anthem of a wonderful cacophony of noise.

"Flags" is designed to revisit the turbulent hot spots of Southern history not least the journey from the antebellum South to women's clinic bombings. It is a rough and tumble, almost punk rock three minute anthem of a wonderful cacophony of noise. Finally the swampy "Mississippi Brother-land" shows that Mr Bains knows his Patterson Hood songbook well, whilst the last song "Dirt Track" is a funky old thing with a bit of a Tumbling Dice vibe thrown in for good measure. "De-reconstructed" is a nasty, noisy album full of heat and burning light conclusively demonstrating that the South will rise again. If you like your rock 'n' roll as dirty as a NFL game in a thunderstorm stop here.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best of 2014...BUY IT NOW!!! 28 May 2014
By Jeff J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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!!!

Favorite tracks so far:
"The Company Man"

4.0 out of 5 stars Dereconstructed is right! 30 May 2014
By Lloyd J. Knight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dereconstructed perfectly describes the sound/feel of the country/rock gem.
At first I was reminded of a cross of Cadillac III and Left Lane Cruiser.
Then, as I got further into the CD, the dual guitar attack has a classic Ron/Keith back and forth.
This is a great listen.
Turn it up and abuse your ears a little more!

5.0 out of 5 stars As heavy and sticky as an August day in Birmingham! 3 July 2014
By MC Wookie 5000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a special album. It will be referenced in years to come as a point of an artistic resurgence in Birmingham, Alabama, if not the south as a whole. The mix is such that you must turn it up in order to hear the vocals. Rather by design or mistake, this ensures you PAY ATTENTION to the lyrics and interplay of the musicians. It is in the ruckus music and earnest delivery of the lyrics that the beauty and importance of this release presents itself. Open your windows, turn off the air conditioning, grab the kids and friends and move your body to this inspired set of songs. You may not get it the first few listens,but just move and shake and keep at it. And in time, you will understand that this is honest, raw emotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Play it LOUD 14 Jun 2014
By mkraine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Play it really really loud. Outstanding record with great songwriting and guitar work. Yeah... the vocals are a bit far back in the mix and the distortion significant... all is right with the world when you turn it way way up... the whole recording opens up. summer soundtrack with the windows down driving too fast. these guys are one mix from being the biggest thing since sliced bread... if they want to be.
