Review Text Raw, stripped-down country is the operative here on the debut album from this New York trio. Singer/guitarist/songwriter Anders Thomsen eschews all the standard hat-hunk vocal and instrumental approaches endemic to modern country, providing instead straight-ahead, no-nonsense songwriting coupled with vocals and twang-worthy playing that cut to the heart of each one of these finely crafted songs. Being a country power trio has its limitations, however; what probably sounds full on the bandstand comes off a little thin sonically compared to even spartan C&W productions (think Dwight Yoakam); but conversely, this straight-ahead, no-frills approach also focuses more attention on the songs themselves, not a bad thing at all. Retro-minded offerings like "Johnny Walker Redneck," "Ain't You Been a Cowboy for Too Long," "Tequila, Salt & Lime" and "All the Way From Abilene" make this a new country disc that's several shades different than your standard CMT fare. A promising debut. ~ Cub Koda
