Now this is a near perfect 'Americana/alt-country' album! Mr Carll sounds to me like Bobby Bare,Jr and Steve Earle with just the right amount of the Rolling Stones mixed in. Great songs about shadowy characters set in dive bars...perfect.
Here is his brilliant cover of Tom Waits' 'I Don't Wanna Grow Up' and the equally wonderful 'She Left Me For Jesus'
