This is a tough album to describe to you, because frankly, it's just too cool.

It opens with opens with an amazing, but straightforward guitar assault, "The Wrong Light" is literally like being beaten to death with the humbucker end of a strat. Kasey Anderson, and Andrew McKeag, take care of this with Kasey also voicing up the brilliant lyric superbly, it's a shame that this is followed by the bland and formulaic "Mercy" which is softer and more pop than anything else on the album, it feels like "train" popped in to produce one.

We get back on track with "Your Side of Town", which is a dark and rainy lament, through a gritty, whiskey soaked, backwater ballad, this is such a great track. Close your eyes and you can't help thinking of an orange-light, drunken walk home through the rain on a midweek night, it all comes flooding in with the strangled and juicy guitar pulls of the solo. I truly love this. While we are on the subject of the Jovi Style love and loathing, don't miss "For Anyone" which is vocally amazing and lyrically brilliant, Kasey is sounding awesome on this track and there is so much heart and soul you really feel like your listening to his thoughts. The great thing about this album is that is doesn't hang about long, "Sirens and Thunder" is a real kick in the head, and has a great stadium rock feel with a cool twang to widen the appeal, running straight into "Kasey Anderson's dream" (I wonder if this is a deliberate Dylan reference) this weighty, bluesy, ballsy, Talkin' Blues track has buckets of style and is one of my favorite tracks on the whole disc.

This album is one for the end of your BBQ, get drunk with your mates and then just as it starts to go dark, slip this one and enjoy, best enjoyed loud, with cold beer near a fire.

Heart of a Dog 25 Oct 2011
By Jross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Play this record loud," suggests the album notes, and good advice that is indeed. You wouldn't want to miss the distorted guitar riffs and gritty voice of Kasey Anderson that go so well with his matter-of-fact songwriting steeped in blues. The opening track gives the impression that this album is dark and menacing, but it is only a taste of what is to come. The tracks that follow range from uptempo and catchy ("Exit Ghost") to introspective and dreamy as on "Your Side of Town." All of a sudden creeps up "Kasey Anderson's Dream" and we are swept into a driving guitar riff reminiscent of ZZ Top, a definite stand out track. Contrasting in style but no less noteworthy is "For Anyone," a soulful and powerful rock ballad. This is definitely worth a look for any rock fan.

Great American Rock Album 13 July 2012
By A. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kasey Anderson and the Honkies deliver the bluesy type of bar room southern rock that we have been missing. The thought provoking and emotion evoking lyrics will make you feel SOMETHING! My favorite from the album has to be "Mercy" followed closely by "For Anyone". This album shows the range of Kasey Anderson and the Honkies but don't stop here. Their back catalog is just as good. Their song "Like Teenage Gravity" grabbed the attention of Counting Crows and is featured on their new covers album "Underwater Sunshine".

Kasey Anderson and the Honkies are on tour now with Counting Crows as part of the Outlaw Roadshow presented by Counting Crows and Ryan's Smashing Life. Buy this album. You will not regret it.

Old fashioned rock and roll 29 May 2012
By T. Caporale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kasey Anderson's first full record with the Honkies is reminiscent of several prominent rock acts - the emotional pull of Springsteen, the live-for-today fervor of the Replacements, the blues/alt-country stylings of the Drive-By Truckers - but manages to achieve a unique whole through Anderson's inspired songwriting and clever yet earnest lyricism. Opener "The Wrong Light" is a slice of pure rock and roll, a raw, bluesy affair that kick-starts the record with a bang. "Mercy" showcases Anderson's penchant for memorable hooks, an infectious barnburner that might be the most accessible track on the record. The band switches gears with "Exit Ghost," a piano ballad that shows off Anderson's voice, a mixture of grit and sweetness that carries the song to the rafters and beyond. Elsewhere, the band mixes pure blues swagger ("Revisionist History Blues" and especially "Kasey Anderson's Dream," the title likely a nod to Bob Dylan) with pop gems (the wonderful "Save It for Later") and moving ballads ("My Blues, My Love"). Heart of a Dog features a band locked in and having fun with a charismatic leader in Kasey Anderson who is primed to become a star. Put this band and record on your radar.

Two Thumbs Up 25 Oct 2011
By MWray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"...These guys are a group you want to watch out for - a cool blend of blues and alternative rock with a pizzazz and lyrical taste that commands attention, a wide variety of emotion, and just plain ol' having fun and cutting loose. All in all - an album that captures all audiences from a group that's sure to hang around."
All great! 19 July 2014
