Crying shame when....

....a long-time favourite band loses everything that made it distinctive. This release showcases the Truckers sounding tired and uninspired. The loss of Jason Isbell seems to have not only deprived the band of his own songs, singing and guitar-playing, but somehow affected Hood's and Cooley's work too. There are two kinds of song on the depressing marathon that is 'Brighter than Creation's Dark': uptempo (sorta) rockers all propelled by the same lifeless foursquare beat and lacking melody, power and individuality, and slow country numbers all propelled by the same lifeless foursquare beat and lacking melody, power and individuality. These two song types more or less alternate through the album, and you will listen in vain for any surprises or standouts. And it goes on, and on, and on......quality control has definitely slipped here : a good fifty percent of the album could have gone on the cutting room floor and not been missed. Cooley has always penned songs of grit, wit and wisdom but on this album I just don't know what has happened : sounds like he's going through the motions on songs that are rushed and unfinished. Hood has given us his fair share of filler over the years (it always seemed to be his job to pad out the running time of DBT releases) and continues to do so with grinding consistency, without the highspots he can hit when he's right on it. As for Shonna Tucker's numbers.....not a lot to say. Non-stick nothings, poorly-sung and lifeless. The whole affair is like a compilation of the tracks from their previous albums that make you reach for the 'skip' button, but with none of the incandescent, wonderful songs that lifted 'Southern Rock Opera', 'Dirty South' and 'Decoration Day' into the realm of masterpieces. Sad, very sad. I so much wanted to love this album, to hear the band storm back strong and proud after the loss of their most talented songwriter - after all, if Hood and Cooley are still there, it's still the Truckers, right? Well, maybe not. A pale shadow of what this great band is capable of, and I hope against hope it's just an aberration.

i haven't been a long time fan of DBT. the first i ever heard was the 'A blessing and a curse' album, the best song being 'space city'. i didn't think i'd ever get far beyond this album and song but with this release i've been hooked.
the opening track is brilliant with an excellent production that is clear throughout. there are some excellent twangy guitar leads, punchy rock out tracks and some slower moments too. the decision to let the female of the band sing lead vocal on a few of the tracks is much welcome as she has a good voice and it makes the whole more varied. you also get two different male vocalist and you can enjoy deciding which one you like best.
if you are new to DBT this is a good as any place to start and if you are already a fan but you're not quite sure I would be surprised if you didn't like this release!
standout tracks for me:
two daughters and a beautiful wife
i'm sorry huston
daddy needs a drink
that man i shot
