Rebels, Rogues And Sworn Brothers

Liberty And Lament

Released on September 26, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Their fifth studio album and finest to date; an artistic and commercial step forward for the Memphis band. David Lowery's production brings sharpness and focus to Lucero's sound and "I Can Get Us Out Of Here" is the legitimate radio single that the band has always hinted at. Legendary Memphis session player and recent Cat Power sideman Rick Steff contributes piano and organ throughout, adding a shimmering sonic wrapping to Lucero's hardest rocking and most tuneful album to date. The lead track evokes the spirit of vintage Springsteen while another recalls Wilco's Summerteeth-era into power pop and vintage synthesizers. Other tracks showcase singer Ben Nichols' southern gothic fatalism. It's the single however, that pulls all these elements together into a catchy, visceral rock song.

On the internet every fan was crying and screaming about how the fact that Lucero has a keyboard on their new album is the greatest blasphemy ever made by man. I think the keyboard fits so well with the whole that the blasphemy was to not have had one before. Still the same powerful and uplifting rock-country, still talking about girls, lovelessness, bottles, friends, childhood, absence of god... Still the same thing than before, but better. As it always was with each record. Ok, perhaps with the exception of "That much further west", one of the best records ever made, in my opinion. It's strange, but i just can't think of a band playing in the same playground they do. It's strange because, when you listen to them, it doesn't sound that original. But really, it is. It's deep, powerful, true, sad... Fuck, it's all i love in music. Raw whisky voice, some acoustic songs who don't sound like fucking ballads, moving lyrics... As on "Nobody's darlings", the last song is an acoustic one, and is also the best track of the album. It's called "She wakes when she dreams" and it will kill you. You can feel this band is real, living, and made music because that's what they are, not because that's what they want.
