4.0 out of 5 stars Right on the money!, 24 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Brighter Than Creation's Dark (Audio CD)
In the last ten years the Drive-By Truckers have come up with a song for every kind of person in the modern American South. There are 19 more on this effort and they include family men, criminals, drunks, workers, addicts, soldiers, even musicians. The music is a wide-ranging idea of Southern rock that draws on not only the amalgams made by bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers, but also on their sources and roots. Over the past decade songs from the Drive-By Truckers have juxtaposed observation and fiction, autobiography and allegory, but not a lot of ego.

The Drive-By Truckers have always let the song dictate the style. They can be noisy and turbulent, as in "That Man I Shot," a soldier's postbattle reactions set to a feedback-drenched Crazy Horse stomp, or steadfast and long-suffering, as in the album's other Iraq war song, "The Home Front,".

This is a typically crowded Drive-By Truckers album where all kinds of characters show up. Listen and enjoy!
