Some people were born drunk. Or born to be drunk. Or drunk to be born. The late West Virginia rockabilly singer Hasil Adkins was all three. The one-man-band had been around since the mid '50s, making the same record over and over, not caring a lick whether anyone was listening on the other end of the microphone. This is one of his darkest records, a sinventory of all that has gone wrong and never will be righted, a prayer to a God he doesn't believe in. "Somehow You'll Find Your Way" is as good as Hasil gets. Stripped like a burnt-out Oldsmobile, Adkins coos and howls at a former lover who will never look back.
