It opens as a bluegrass/country/rock hybrid with emphasis on organ/keyboards. And that's how Todd May rolls.
It's ultimately a good album but not for me. I'll keep "Mercy," "Better Way to Build a Rocket," "Why Don't You Come Out Lately" (where they veer into Drive-by Truckers territory), and maybe "Gadflies and Magpies."
Ultimately it's not quite country, and it's not quite rock 'n roll, which is good and bad.
