Cool!

I like this band. I don't like to think of them as alt-country, but rather, southern rock. I like the guitar and rough vocals. I'd like to see them live and they are coming to DC in Oct09, so maybe I'll go.

Go see these guys

jjmonroe

Experience them live to get a full appreciation for what they do. I wouldn't have been able to stand after taking as many shots as they do, much less play a small bar for over 2 hours. This album represents their sound perfectly and has a few of their absolute best songs, "Nights Like These," "Sweet Little Thing," "The Last Song." You could start here if you don't have anything else by them, just don't stop!

Learn it and rock it live

livemusicfan

I prefer my music live,so I love Lucero and I love this particular album. Lucero has old school rules. You buy the album. You learn every word and note. Then, when they come within 200 miles, you go and sing yourself hoarse. You and EVERY OTHER FAN there. Great album overall, but my faves are "Chain Link Fence", "The Last Song", and "I'll Just Fall." See you at the show.

Ah....

dannytoearth

Mmmmm... country sadness. So you got dumped? You did the dumping? You wish you were attractive enough for either? Forget the emo, or that r&b, or that Celine Dion that I KNOW you have. Nothing suits dicontent better than country. And it ROCKS like only depressing country can.

BEST LUCERO ALBUM

RidgeBardo

This is my favorite Lucero album, as it exposes Ben Nichols' more straight-forward songwriting, as opposed to some of the later more whiskey-fueled rock. Of course, all of this comes from the talent who brought us the punk rock of Red40 in the mid- to late-90s. A truly talented team who put on amazing live shows (check to make sure they're not coming to your town this summer: www.luceromusic.com) that is worth downloading -- check the best track: "Chain Link Fence" first.

They Say All Music Guide

Ben Nichols, leader of Memphis alt-country rockers Lucero, claims he had never heard of Uncle Tupelo back when he traded in his punk stripes for a more roots rock sound. While this may sound like typical rhetoric from upstarts trying to avoid being cast into the alt-country ghetto, Tennessee, the group’s sophomore outing, is strong enough evidence to back up that claim. Listening to this defiantly organic and strong release, one gets the sense that Nichols adopted a countrified sound simply because it seemed the shortest path to the heart. The album is packed with leather-tough Americana such as “Nights Like These,” — which is all guitar-crunch, rolling B-3 organ, and Nichols’ hot-tar emotive rasp — and the gliding, melodic country-rock of “Ain’t So Lonely.” There are also plenty of ruminative, bruised numbers on the album, such as “Sweet Little Thing,” which eventually bursts out of a stark verse to reveal a Replacements-style hear-tugging rocker. The songs get a big kick in the pants from Nichols’ vocals; he’s a raw singer in the tradition of Steve Earle, Paul Westerberg, and Matthew Ryan. Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars — who also happens to be the son of legendary producer Jim Dickinson (Big Star, Replacements) — produced this album and added keyboards. – Erik Hage
