Hard to overlook this magnitude of team-up,
This review is from: Fair Warning (MP3 Download)
Where to even start... Two memorable voices, two skilled songwriters, etc etc - these things tend to either be decent or off-the-charts, like The Civil Wars. I'd say that already, The Rails are heading toward the latter. We'll see where they are in two or three albums from now, but this is one hell of a debut and portends of great things to come.
It gets a bit heavy on both the folk and the rock, but overall the balance is wonderful, and the craftsmanship involved is top-notch. I thought I might end up not liking a song or two, but now five plays in through the album and I'm sold on each song individually. My favourite album of the year thus far, early as it is.
