Goodbye Normal Street

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On the cusp of breaking out of the Oklahoma/Texas corridor, Turnpike Troubadours have turned inward, hunkering down and honing their hard country on Goodbye Normal Street. Where their 2010 album Diamonds & Gasoline was anchored on several songs with a rock & roll bent -- including a stomping cover of John Hartford's "Long Hot Summer Days" -- Goodbye Normal Street gets into the dust and dirt of Texan country, the songs of Evan Felker often recalling those of Steve Earle or Townes Van Zandt.

On the cusp of breaking out of the Oklahoma/Texas corridor, Turnpike Troubadours have turned inward, hunkering down and honing their hard country on Goodbye Normal Street.

This understated nature can mean that Goodbye Normal Street doesn't grab hold upon its first listen but it is, as they say, a grower, the kind of record that slowly reveals its depths and eventually seems like an album that you've always known by heart.
