    Catches the Old 97s at near peak.

    While Drag It Up is not their best album, it catches the Old 97s at near peak powers.<BR/><BR/>"Won't Be Home" is a great lead off track. "Moonlight" is also a memorable song. "Bloomington" is catchy. "Blinding Sheets of Rain" and "The Satellite Rides a Star" are memorable ballads. "Coahilla", "New Kid", and "Friends Forever" are also worth mentioning. <BR/><BR/>Good album!

    Im not sure what to think

    In a word: confusing. I guess the main problem with this album is that it will inevitably be compared with Sattelite Rides: a comparison that few records could survive because SR was a great album. Drag It Up is not great. It's hardly even good. It is becoming more and more obvious that creative control of the band is less and less in the hands of Rhett Miller....I find it hard to believe that a musician of his incredible talent thinks Drag It Up is a good album. Don't get me wrong, it has its bright spots like "The New Kid" and "Adelaid", but the rest of the album lacks direction and sounds like a lousy high school band with a good singer. Hopefully this is just Rhett Millers way of keeping his bandmates happy while he works on his 2nd solo album. Speaking of which, obviously former Old 97s record label Elektra realizes where the talent is in this band. C-

    The Best Band Ever!!!!!

    I love this band! The Best Band Ever! The song 'Won't Be Home' has a Too Far To Care feel to it. Also 'The New Kid' is a great song as well. To me, 'Smokers' has a Dick Dale type of sound and is one of the better songs on this CD. You will also find 'No Mother' to be a very moving song. You should by now have all the Old 97s CD's, so buy this CD NOW!!!
