AMERICAN GRAVEYARD

Hallelujahland

2010-10-04

Recorded in Austin, this is American Graveyard's second release. Featuring not only guitar, bass, and drum; but also dobro, mandolin and banjo, American Graveyard crafts bluegrass-tinged country-rock. Many of the songs are slower and feature earnest lyrics such as the album's opener, "Common Ones", and the title track. Others are country stompers, like "Pinebox" and "Shake with Me". Some of the songs offer sing-along choruses that beg for and arena and a lighter ("A Good Thing"). These are a bit melodramatic for my taste, but I can't resist the stompers or the dark final track.
