5.0 out of 5 stars Theres trouble a brewin down south.., 28 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Sackcloth 'n' Ashes (Audio CD)
If your image of country & western music is Billy ray cyrus & Garth Brooks then think again. This band do the country think with a drasticly dark gothic twist, it feels like the whole thing was recorded in sepia.. brooding & resonating with evil. all the instruments seems to be 19th century or early 20th. Its full of wrong doings and penetance. Imagine a band who played music like the theme to a Sergio Leone spaghetti western, but 16 times darker.

I stumbled across 16 Horsepower as a result of watching Jim White's Searching For The Wrong-Eyed Jesus. On this Southern movie is a short, enigmatic, version of Black Soul Choir. So, I bought the LP which has the full length version, and am very pleased I did so. It is astonishing, compelling, foreboding and just teetering on the edge of violence. The whole LP is shot through with Southern Gothic, even though the band came from Denver, Colorado. The production is superb, and the musicianship exemplary. This is an outstanding LP for anyone who enjoys the dark rumours of the night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sombre Americana, 21 May 2009
This review is from: Sackcloth 'n' Ashes (Audio CD)
Dark rock with a dose of Old-Timey banjo and wheezing atmospheric squeezbox. I'm awestruck by this album. It has attitude, tradition and spookyness. The drumming is full of fabulous fills. Some of the vocals (intentionally) have a smoky distant muffled sound - but it's all just exactly right.
Is it country? Well, yes. But not like you ever heard before.
Is it rock. Yeah. A bit rustic, not urban.
Is this their best album? Well, either this one, or "Hoarse".
Hey, just buy it!

Their debut album brings you dark country with good songs and this special singing voice. I like some of their latter work better but for many people this is their best. Very good work anyway.
