The highest complement I can pay this album, is that it is one that I have been playing almost constantly since I have bought it. And the simple reason is because the strengths of "This fiery road.." lie in well crafted simple songs. All are beautifully arranged and produced, with Cade's band the The Everyday Sinners turning in a masterful performance.
There is much to be celebrated here, the hooks on tracks such as Hotter than the Sun will be bouncing around your gray matter sooner rather than later. A particular favourite of mine; The Room could quite comfortably sit on albums by artists such as Lucinda Williams or Paul Currei. Think Eileen Rose sung by Tom Waits and you are on the right lines. Cade has by no means a voice as strong as Waits, but he has some great tunes!
All in all, a very enjoyable album.
