The ' Wars' may not be ' Civil ' ?
on 2 October 2013
They may not be ' Civil ' any longer ??? ' but while they were,they really were something very special. I had never heard of them before ( probably because I'm not, or ever will be a ' Country fan ' ) but I heard ' Billy Jean ' and was amazed. This is one of those ( for me anyway ) very rare songs where everything works to perfection, the title, the lyrics, the music, and the harmony, ( and the remarkable voices of Joy Williams and John Paul ).
I bought and downloaded both Albums, this one and ' Barton Hollow ' and considering I'm not a 'Country' fan I have to say I'm very glad I did, I have been listening a lot to both and they are excellent. In my opinion ' The Civil Wars ' are up there with the best, their harmonies are ' magical '.
