Thrilled

I can't get enough of that twisted desert west Americana music. This fits the bill between releases from Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Munly. Perfect for a night drive from Moab to hell.

Good Stuff

richardpudmann

This music is some kinda Americana, alt., punk, country, folk, church music. And it's hella good stuff. You don't have to like country music or folk or punk or church music to like this. Because it's none of those. It's a little strange, maybe. But it's good. Give it a try. I'd recommend Mother is a Carpegian as a good sample song. If you can dig Reverend Glasseye you'll probably also like Munly and the Lee Lewis Harlots.

Agreed.

This is certainly the most unique yet still compelling sound I've heard since 16 Horsepower. Good stuff. I'd ad that there's a little Tiger Lillies to this album as well.

Fantastic

This album is difficult to categorize. There are certain similarities with 16 Horsepower, Tom Waits and Nick Cave- but Reverend Glasseye does it differently. A strange album at the unholy interface of carnival music, blues, goth and country, with a bit of religion thrown into the mix, yet still with space for humour. Surely, this is an album that will be either loved or hated- but for me, I have not heard anything so immediately fantastic since I first listened to 16 Horsepower.
