2008-05-12Anticipation has been building for a new Railroad Earth release and for the first time in 4 years, the band members found themselves back in the studio recording all new material. It's definitely a home-grown project, much like the band itself. Railroad Earth's new studio release, Amen Corner, was written and recorded at Lone Croft: an empty, 300 year-old house in New Jersey's rural countryside. What happened inside the building was the experience of a lifetime for the band's members, resulting in an early creative pinnacle of a gifted young band, and an album that is an instant Americana classic. Amen Corner is a collection of crisp and crafted roots, bluegrass, and acoustic sides that resonates in all the right places. The tunes breathe both on and between the notes. – Joe Parsaca
