Review

I was very surprised a few years ago when I discovered that Andy Logan from the band LITTLE AMERICA (a real faveband of mine) was out with a brand new soloalbum. I gave the album a really good review cause it was worth every penny of the investment.
Now it?s time for Andy to follow up "Last Dance On The Wild Frontier" and musically he?s taken the music down to a slower, more rootsy and swampy sounding album and it suits him well.
If I should try to explain for you what type of music we?re talkin about I could say that we have a mixture of Matthew Ryan, Wilco, Ryan Adams, Steve Earle and Paul Westerberg in the man and his album.
The lovely "Halfway There" is one little pearl, the acoustic based "Ride" with a touch of Jayhawks another and "Battleground" with an album progressive 70?s undertone added to the sound is also a damn good tune. And there are plenty more on here.
The album is also an album that grows for each listen and when you hear Andy raspy and naked voice singing the refrain to "Behind The Curtain" you can?t do anything else than love the man and his music.
