Who exactly is Bobtown? They're not exactly traditional folk or country but rather a blend of the old and the new, drawing on a variety of roots-oriented music genres which reflect each participant's unique history (there are four songwriters). It's a little pop, a little country, a little rock, a little gospel, and recurring themes throughout the album appear to be redemption, death and the devil. It's a little dark in places but the Gothic edge is masked in gorgeous, four- and five-part harmonies and lilting vocal and instrumental melodies.
