Artist: Moses Guest CD Review:
Southern alternative rockers Moses Guest are making up for their lack of a prolific catalog by coming out with this long-awaited self-titled double cd set that clocks in at just under 2 hours. For those of us who have been waiting for a follow-up to 1997ís American Trailer Home Blues, itís here, and itís epic in several ways.
Graham Guest - lead guitar/lead vocal/banjo Rick Thompson - keyboards/guitar/mandolin/back vocal James Edwards - drums/back vocal Jeremy Horton - bass
Disc: 1 1. Saint Mo 2. Cellophane Man 3. I Do Not Love You 4. Boogie Heartache 5. Rag Doll 6. Phrygian Way 7. How Does It Feel 8. In Transit
Disc: 2 1. Song for Dead 2. U 'N' Mi 3. Best Side Up 4. De Jam Stealin' 5. Elohw's Path 6. Waterville 7. Over the Car 8. Mario's End 9. Take Me 10. [Untitled Hidden Track]
and they make it last. Donít be surprised to find tracks that plummet from 1 to 10 minutes, with the emphasis on the longer jam tracks. Like listening to The Band go on and on or some sort of hillbilly rockers dig out gems from their Basement Tapes. Very fine production makes this music more than interesting. Just take a gander at the cd cover photo (looks like Granny and Uncle Jed had kids): fun music, with no vague promises to solve the worldís problems.
