Barton Hollow

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Joy Williams and John Paul White aren't a couple, but they certainly sound like they're in love, singing together with the sort of familiarity that only seems to exist between couples and siblings. On Barton Hollow, their studio debut as the Civil Wars, the two trace each other's melodies with close harmonies that never fail to lose their romance, even on breakup tunes like "Falling." It's an organic, folk-pop sound not unlike the one made by the Swell Season, another boy/girl duo with a talent for making heartbreaking Americana. If the Civil Wars are America's answer to that band, then "Poison & Wine" is their "Falling Slowly." An aching, gorgeous tribute to a ...

On Barton Hollow, their studio debut as the Civil Wars, the two trace each other's melodies with close harmonies that never fail to lose their romance, even on breakup tunes like "Falling." It's an organic, folk-pop sound not unlike the one made by the Swell Season, another boy/girl duo with a talent for making heartbreaking Americana. If the Civil Wars are America's answer to that band, then "Poison & Wine" is their "Falling Slowly." An aching, gorgeous tribute to a relationship on the rocks, it's one of the few tracks to include more than an acoustic guitar, with some piano and soft drums also making their way into the mix. Even so, the focus remains on the band's vocals, which are easily the best instruments on Barton Hollow. Those who don't like rootsy ballads are in for some slim pickings, since Barton Hollow shines its brightest whenever the tempos slow, the lights dim, and the voices rise up. But the title track, with its outlaw lyrics and swanky Southern groove, is a nice change from the norm, and "I've Got This Friend" finds a balance between both camps. Good stuff.

    Amazing talent that you must hear!

    I randomly came across this CD and fell in love with it and had to buy it. Their voices harmoinze beautifully and instrumental parts of the song are equally beautiful. So when you put it all together with awesome lyrics it is amazing. I will never get rid of this CD and look forward to more.

    Amazing

    From the first song to the last this CD is amazing. The harmony, the simple sound, the beauty of the voices, the emotional connection is unlike any I have heard. Talent is the best way to describe the CD.

    Amazing Soothing Enchanting

    This is amazing music. It goes from haunting instrumental music to soothing lyrics to upbeat and fun. A joy to listen to, and can be motivational when exercising or soothing to fall asleep to it. I stumbled onto it from a blog, and am so glad I did.
