This CD has secret glue, and I don’t know what it is. First couple of listens, eh. Reminded me of The Staggers: a band that could easily switch from campfire to barroom without losing power, who (I’m totally guessing), respect the Misfits as much as Johnny Cash equally. But then I kept going back to the record. It tells stories. It has beats I tap along to. I saw them live a couple of times, and Dan, the lead singer, is a big dude who makes his acoustic guitar look like a ukulele and he sings his goddamn heart out. What more are we asking for in music? Nothing. Take It Easy is like a pair of work pants. At first, it seemed a little stiff and off-the-pile, yet gets smoothed out and more comfortable with more usage. Recommended.
