    The Awakening of Country Music

    A beautiful album of dense, colorful songs that confront the ambivalence of life, love, and luck all the while confronting the listener as to the concepts of country music and American music as a whole. The command of the WPA Ballclub, and Burch especially--who plays at least two or three instruments on every song--makes the songs sound like elastic, fresh first-takes and carefully phrased thoughtful arrangements simultaneously. ''Isolda'' and ''Willpower'' are disarming in Burch's ability as a singer to convey humor, disgust, fear, and joy within the bounds of single lines. His albums are a continuing Odyssey in American music.

    Country's new voice

    A great cd! A brilliant breakthrough for Burch and his all-star WPA Ballclub. Great songs that effortlessly sway to every corner of American music on the centered pen and voice of Burch whose voice cuts clear like a bright steel-cutting light through each song. Tom House's Carolina (?) drawl on How Do I Know is a wide-eyed awakening as is the living room sweet fiddle (and hilarious breakdown) on Oh My Darlin'. This is where country music should be. This is the new center.
