ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With driving rock anthems like "Lightning", "Shots Fired" & "Smoky Skies", the soulful and slithery blues of "Goin' Back To Texas", "Crows" & "Maybe Baby", the emotional firepower of rock ballads "Broke Down", "Been Awhile" & "The Fall" and the downright dirty shuffles of "Long Long Time" & "Draw The Line", everybody will find something to like on this deep 14-song, 65 minute album.

"Leave 'Em To Crows" conjures memories of your favorite timeless ZZ Top, Allman Brothers and Tom Petty records with rich tones from 1965 Fender Twin Reverb & 1964 Fender Deluxe amps, cookin' Hammond organ, vintage 1962 Ludwig drum sounds, and thick Mesa Boogie bass tones. And yet, still, the album sounds every bit as fierce and modern as a Joe Bonamassa or Black Crowes' album.

Recorded and produced by Mark Simmons, owner of Pacific Studios in Tacoma, WA (Vicci Martinez, Ethan Tucker).

Solid Rockers, but stuck in the 80's.
Overall, this band appears to be quite talented and this album is mostly an enjoyable listen. These guys are not young bucks, so they've been around for awhile. The music is quite good and the guitar playing is exceptional. They have a bit of a "Jam Band" sound that for the most part works well. The biggest concern I have for these guys is their song lyrics. The album is a bit of a mish-mesh of themes with several of the songs having some socially liberal messages, which is probably explained by their living environment in Olympia, Washington. These messages might have been taken more seriously about 30 yrs ago, so they come across as a bit dated... Some of the songs have just some run of the mill blues rock-type lyrics. The most surprising (aka, irritating) song for me is "Cherry" which is a rock song with some clearly out-dated lyrics for some "socially-conscious" middle aged men, especially the line, "I've never seen a Cherry that didn't give me wood..." I was able to personally work around this "offense" by just deleting the song from my play list. All in all, not a bad album and I wish the band success; I also hope they get a better grip on writing lyrics...
