I heard Sting say that the test of a well-crafted song is how it sounds with a single voice and unaccompanied acoustic instrument. I play out on a regular basis, and I can tell you, these songs carry. If you sing them with conviction, subtlety, and tap into your romantic side, they are powerful, almost primal. Every song has a surprising, original chord progression. The melodies sound like they were discovered, not contrived. People 2000 years ago would have felt the simple sentiments of these songs accompanied by the guitar. A lot of insecure and untalented snobs dismissed the band, but as taste and talent erode, man do these songs sound better all the time. Sure, there are a few unfortunate arrangements ( the wah wah wah in if) that date the music) but fortunately, the songs do not sound dated. The band name is embarrassing, and inappropriate, because, though chosen in the right spirit, the music doesn't "feed" you. It's more sugar, maybe a little cotton candy. It's a little earthy, but more the sunny plains with the scent of the Rockies on the wind. A little of David Gate's Oklahoma. It's very American. Love these guys, because they're the real deal.
