At first glance i couldn't help but feel a bit dis­ap­point­ed by the lack of new ma­te­r­i­al on the Nashville group's de­but LP but then again, i can't say these new record­ings of songs most­ly known from pre­vi­ous EPs don't slap - they kick some se­ri­ous ass, trad­ing in some of the pre­vi­ous re­leas­es' sham­bol­ic quirk­i­ness for a bit more of a hard­core edge and while i've re­al­ly grown fond of the EPs' Lo-Fi aes­thet­ics, there have al­so been some ex­am­ples on these that nev­er quite clicked with me in their ear­li­er ver­sions and its those songs that gain the most on this LP which is like­ly al­so a clos­er rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the group's cur­rent live sound, their shows hav­ing gained kind of a leg­endary rep­u­ta­tion at this point. Can't wait to see these folks tour Eu­rope.
